Livorno's Specialities: Cacciucco, Torta di Ceci and Ponce

Delicious Torta di Ceci, a Livornese speciality Delicious Torta di Ceci, a Livornese speciality No visit to Livorno is complete without trying one of the city’s local specialities. Perhaps the most obvious of these, Livorno being a port with lots of fishing activity, is the fish stew known as “Cacciucco”. This rich dish with a tomato base contains five different kinds of fish and served in a soup dish on a thick slice of bread rubbed with garlic. These days the dish has become a symbol of Livorno.
