Pizzeria Orsucci information
For a slice of Ferrarese culinary history, head to this hole-in-the-wall pizzeria, run by the same family since 1936. Choices are simple: do you want your pizza margherita small or medium-sized, with or without anchovies? Aside from draught beer, the only other menu item is padella di ceci (a chickpea-flour treat cooked in the wood-fired oven). If you ask, the amiable proprietor Giulio can tell you a story or two about the news clippings and photos that cover the walls, documenting Orsucci’s numerous awards and history as a film set.
