La Tortuga

""""""La Tortuga
Via Ponte alle Mosse, 195r
50144 Firenze
Tel. 055 362598

Prezzo: 23.50 Euro
1 Pizza Regina
1 Pizza Capricciosa
2 Coca-Cola in Lattina

ANNIE: 6.5/10
The set-up at La Tortuga is reminiscent of, and just about as appetizing as, a nursing home dining hall: clinical but welcoming, perhaps promising quantity but certainly not quality; I almost expected to be waited on by a hairnet and plastic gloves. There were quite a number of diners, and the large TV was going, but it wasn't enough to convince me that the pizza had a chance of being decent. I ordered the Regina (mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, gorgonzola). It came out looking like a clogged-up kitchen sink, but the flavor was absolutely delicious! About 3/4 of the way in, the powerful gorgonzola began to be a bit much, but I carried on for the softness of the porcini and the crunchiness of the crust.

FABIO: 6/10
Pizza da 6, nè più nè meno. È del tipo basso, con crosta biscottata, pomodoro e mozzarella senza infamia e senza lode. Tutto ciò in contrasto con quello che evoca il nome Tortuga, isola dei Cairaibi, resa famosa da Salgari nei suoi romanzi in particolare per il Corsaro Nero! Forse anche per la pizza si deve lavorare di fantasia?
