Let’s thank The Fork for letting us discover this place. Located in the heart of Turin, almost hidden unless you already know what you’re looking for, Bricks is a pizza restaurant: the design is minimalist but well-finished, the environment is informal enough and the menu boasts local ingredients.
Indeed, they serve gourmet food prepared with high quality ingredients, from tapas – Spanish appetizers, sometimes revisited in a local key (like the buffalo mozzarella and salmon “nighiri”) – to pizzas, without forgetting main and second courses. Buffalo mozzarella and the other diary products, the Cailletier, hand-chopped beef, raw sausage from Bra and a good selection of wine and beer, make Bricks the ideal place for a posh aperitif.
But if you prefer a full meal course, at Brick the path of taste is a crescendo. The appetizers, the aforementioned tapas, are so little and good that will finish in the glimpse of an eye; the burgers are everything but ordinary, and the potatoes are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside; and you don’t want to miss pizza, its Neapolitan dough and the high-quality ingredients ( Bricks pizza has tomato, burrata, Cailletier, basil, Prosciutto di Parma and Grana cheese).[And you want a dessert and it’s summer, I suggest you to go at Alberto Marchetti, which is nearby.]
Your senses will thank you, and you will surely share these feelings with the other diners. But quality has a price, so it’s better to wait for a discount.
