chiù it has the classic grocery store set-up, with the counter and shelves full of visible products, but the products are the real added value of this shop. It is a small place of worship of the culinary tradition of all regions of Italy, a showcase of toys with over 700 references selected for quality and taste, with attention to the preparation methods that must be as traditional and natural as possible.
The history and philosophy can be read on the walls, in the narrative prints placed between one shelf and another, demonstrating the fact that Chiù is particularly keen to convey its value in terms of quality, passion and research. For some time now, the shop has also become a bistro, offering the many food specialties that are on sale for lunch, an aperitif and dinner. Genuine counter and shelf products and ready-to-eat dishes, to take away or eat on the spot at large wooden tables suitable for sharing, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere or in the quiet outdoor space when the weather permits.
Chiù, the products
The assortment is wide and varied: fresh and mature cheeses, cold cuts, artisanal pasta, cereals and legumes, honey, preserves, sauces, creams, baked goods, wines and craft beers. On the bistro menu you can find first and second courses, saltimbocca sandwiches made with wood-fired pizza dough and stuffed with goodies from the counter. Traditional soups such as tomato soup, wraps, salads, dishes with dairy products and meat and fish carpaccio, cakes and various desserts. During the aperitif, however, the proposal includes cold cuts and cheeses, fried dumplings and gourmet pizzas to pair with a glass of wine or a beer.
