Tortas. They're delicious. They're simple street food pastries stuffed with meat and such. Go and try one, then visit the central market next door. Then you're going to want another one so go back again. It's that simple.

If you're in Livorno, you must go there. Gagarin doesn't have any sign boards on the wall... when you arrive the door of Gagarin you can't be sure then when you enter to Gagarin you understand easily... You have to wait to give your order, but absolutely worth it!... mmmm I still remember what a nice test... if I were... More

There's nothing to say. Just must go there, taste, and go again, and again, and again. The torta is a traditional kind of pizza made by chickpeas flour, water and oil... vegan and delicious.

My partner and I popped in after working up an appetite strolling around the market. Wouldn't have found it it it wasn't for the pictures as it's not clearly signposted. As per the other reviews we had the 5e5 on focaccia with egg plant/ aubergine and it was lovely. Highly recommended for lunch.

Aparently, this is one of the must visit places in Livorno. It's famous for its Cinque e Cinque torte and the local soft drink, Spuma Bianca, made from ginger. But, during the entire month of August, during the peak tourist season, such as it is in Livorno, it was closed for a holiday, until the 2nd of September (2015). Boo!

What a great place! The thing to order is the torta 5e5 (pronounced cheenqueh eh cheenqueh). The torta is a pancake made of ceci (chickpeas) flour and olive oil and grilled until crispy. They serve it on either a focaccia which looks like a hamburger bun or what they call panfrancese which is a baguette. We ordered focaccia and noticed... More

We were visiting the port of Livorno on a cruise and had found out about Torteria da Gagarin after some research. Have to say we did a double take when we saw it from the outside, not exactly inviting, but we'd come all this way so no going back. Thank goodness we took that decision, the "Cinque e Cinque con...
