The place is easy to find by the adresa but has no sign or anything outside. The torta with focaccia and melanzane (eggplant) is something to die for! An explosion of flavor! Highly recommended typical Livornian food!

If you’re in Livorno visiting, try a cinque e cinque. It is a traditional snack made up of chickpea pie inside a focaccia. (You can add aubergines to it too!) Gagarin is surely the best place to try it. Safe bet any day!
