Are you in Turin, but you feel like eating a Neapolitan pizza? Many people think that Neapolitan pizza has the best dough and they can’t do without it either when outside Campania. So, even if you think that the expression “Neapolitan pizza in Turin” sounds like an oxymoron, I can guarantee you you’re wrong. There are many Neapolitan pizza restaurants in the center of Turin but, without any doubt, one of the best is Sarchiapone.
In Italy the word sarchiapone may refer to an imaginary animal invented by Walter Chiari, which was a well-known comedian. While in the south of Italy, sarchiapone is used to refer to dumb and chubby people. In Turin, instead, the word refers to a very good pizza restaurant.
Even if at first the place may appear a little disorganized (for example, our group had to wait outside the restaurant despite we had booked, the staff is very young or a little grouchy, pizza can’t be completely customized), you will forget any possible negative impression at the first taste. Thanks to its crust – which is both high and soft – to the great ingredients and to the perfect dough, this pizza is easily the best pizza eaten in Turin (and if you wonder about the Metropolitan City… have you ever heard about L’Angolo Partenopeo?), the most similar to Napoli’s dough. And, to make matters better, the price is very affordable, thanks to the fact that the place is located in San Salvario.
So, if you want me to give you a very good advice… well, then book well in advance: the place is very popular. Don’t ask me why…
