This is a must try for visitors to Florence .. it was slightly difficult to find and there was a long waiting time ... But at the end it was worth it ... Amazing pizzas and one of the best places for local cheese .. esp Mozzarella... A bit expensive but definitely worth it...

Amazing pizza, super nice waitress but the owner standing at the door is one of the rudest people I have ever met and as such I would never return or recommend the joint.

Best pizza I've had in a very long time. Service is very fast and the waiters/waitresses are very friendly. Their olio piccante 🌶 is to die for. You have to reserve a table otherwise it's almost impossible to get a table.

Coming back this year I was worried it wouldn't live up to my expectations again. But it was somehow even better than I remembered! I had pizza every... More

I went with the spaghetti alle vongole because it was offered with the white wine sauce. The clams were small, which was appropriate and they were tastier and the pasta was cooked perfectly. I thought it was a little salty for my taste. It is busy and you must be aware that they close for pomereggio at 230-245pm, so you... More

We sought out this place due to a recommendations and we are so glad we did. Very local part of town and filled with locals - always a good sign. I got the eggplant pizza - maybe the best pizza I've ever had - no exaggeration! My husband got a pizza with ham, artichokes and olives. There are two pages... More
