A pizzeria in the Alvalade shopping mall. A pizzeria that brings to the table the Neapolitan tradition – fluffier dough, thick on the edges, damp in the middle. A pizzeria with a super-deluxe oven of the Stefano Ferrara brand, custom-made in Napoli with a volcanic rock pedestal, where pizzas are cooked between 60 and 90 seconds. A pizzeria where, beyond classic margherita, marinara or quatro formaggi pies, Genovese chef Giorgio Damasio cooks quality Italian dishes. Mercantina is all that – and it's all good.
Time Out tips:
– Order one the three focaccia breads as an appetizer.
– They serve wondrous breaded Milanese steaks.
– Nutella pizza? Yes. Family size, please.
