Le Piano Chez Toinou (Porticcio)

From the appetizer to the digestif, through the main course and the dessert, everything at Le Piano Chez Toinou is simply divine. The dining experience, although a bit pricey, is definitely worth it as the food is exquisite, homemade, and hearty. Not to mention, the warm and friendly atmosphere with beautiful Corsican music playing in the background.


Corsican charcuterie is renowned worldwide for its exceptional quality, thanks in large part to the island's unique breed of pigs, which are cross-bred with wild boar and fed on natural chestnuts — a traditional staple that has also made its way into modern cuisine in dishes such as "pulenta" (chestnut porridge) and "fritelli a gaju frescu" (chestnut fritters). Additionally, the island's cuisine features a variety of other local specialities, including fish, seafood, and game. One of the most famous dishes on the island is the "civet de sanglier," a casserole made with wild boar.
