Pizzeria Sciuscià is the meeting place in Palermo for lovers of Neapolitan pizza, with a thick and soft dough.
The pizzeria is mentioned in the French Michelin Guide: 'Certainly the best pizza in Palermo. The secret is the filled edge.'
The raw materials are carefully chosen, buffalo mozzarella e.g. comes straight from Salerno, and Salvio, the owner, uses for the oven mostly olive wood, the best for this use.
The edge is stuffed with mozzarella cheese, or creamed spinach, mushrooms, black olives, cottage cheese, radish, or basil pesto and then topped in the centre due to your wish.
Do not miss the classic Neapolitan pizza fries with broccoli, or the variants with algae or anchovies. Another specialty is pizza by the metre. The restaurant also offers pasta dishes, such as spaghetti with seafood, and main courses like grilled Argentine or Irish beef.
We liked mest the simple Pizza Margherita with basil leaves!
