Of all the restaurants and cafés in Florence the pizza here were the best. The variety and choices were outstanding and head and shoulders above the typical cafe. Definitely my favorite pizza place.

The staff was friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable experience. The pizza was excellent, and there was a large and varying selection. We hope to stop by once more before we leave Florence.

Things you need to know about Gustarium:

Tip 1: Pizzas are sold by weight. Most are €25.00 per kg. Salmon pizza €27.00 per kg.

Because it is by weight, try a bit of everything! Just ask them to cut a small piece.

They will put the bits that need to go into the oven to heat it up. Ingredients that do not need heating are placed back on piping hot pizza after coming out of oven. So the texture is just right! Crispy base. Fresh veg and tender meat.

Tip 2: It is a small pizza shop with a small “Gustarium” signage. If you don’t look carefully, you may miss/pass it.

Tip 3: This is not a restaurant, so don’t expect table service. But the pizzas are brilliant!

Tip 4: There was no menu (when I was there). The person serving you is the menu! Hahaha... they will explain to you the different pizzas and their ingredients.

Tip 5: I prefer the pizzas with thin crust!

Tip 6: Pizzas go well with white wine.

Tip 7: There is a washroom/toilet downstairs. Wash your hands before food!

Tip 8: No cutlery available. Use your hands. Read Tip 7. :-)

I went there twice.

I had an assortment of pizzas both times.

The first time I spent €12.00 on pizza and €3.00 on a glass of white wine.

The second time I spent €11.00 on pizza.

Great pizza was a little bit harder to find in Florence than it was elsewhere in Italy, so Gustarium really stood out. It's pizza done Roman style -- square pies that are cut and priced by weight -- and the toppings were excellent (highly recommend the three-tomato kind). But the crust is what haunts my dreams. Handmade, slightly nutty and perfectly balanced, with a crispy exterior and soft interior.
