The Restaurant
Faccini, for more than seventy years, still exists on the small square in front of Saint Anthony’s Church, the patron saint of animals. The saint of Faccini is celebrated every year on the evening of the 17th January with a large meal based on pork. This is just one of the many traditions celebrated thanks to the embedded presence of this restaurant, with a food shop next to it from where it is possible to buy to cold meats that Massimo personally selects and cures for perfect seasoning. His sisters Barbara and Paola take care of the dining room and the kitchen and represent the third generation of a host family, who make you feel at home when you are in their restaurant. True traditional Piacenza cuisine can be tasted in Faccini including hand made pasta by Paola and Barbara and their helpers. Thanks to the careful selection of the best producers in Piacenza by Massimo, it as also possible to drink good wine. In the summer a few tables in front of the restaurant allow a pleasurable evening to be enjoyed.
