Ah Il Pizzaiuolo and I met on my last night in Florence and it was meant to be! The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere is fantastic. As for the pizza? Heaven! I opted for a delicious tomato base with mozzarella, basil and anchovies. It was completely perfect (better than Franco Manca by a long way for those Londoners reading... More

I have visited more than 10 cities in Italy and more than 50 Italian restaurants in my life, it's certain that this is the best pizza i have ever eaten. My first visit was 1999 and the quality has never changed . If you are lovers of mozzarella i recommend burrata cheese , it's divine !

We always visit il Pizzaiolo when in Florence because it is our favorite pizza. Located right near the Mercato Sant'Ambrogio. Best to book a table as it is always pretty packed. The other items on the menu are quite good as well. We particularly enjoy the seafood that is served. Great prices and value!

This pizza place is quite a walk from the Basilica di Santa Croce (this is a common place to get dropped off at or meet up with your tour group - even on your own walking groups meet here) We arrived close to noon in the city and headed straight for Il Pizzaiuolo. Since we were early for lunch, we... More

Have to admit that we come here every time we visit Florence, so it gets some added points for sentimentality. But, outside of Naples it can be hard to find VERY good pizza--and il Pizzaiuolo certainly fits the bill. Each time we've been the pizza has been very good and consistent. Our favorites are the Margherita pizzas and they don't... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
