Nice food, noisy environment, nice pizza, not very "harmonized" delivery of dishes. Prices are normal for the delivered quality. Parking is very easy.

Been here during the summer, so the place gets an additional star for the garden and the possibility of eating outside. Either than that, we loved the huge pizza option (you can customise it with up to 3/4 flavours on the same pie), and the atmosphere, relaxed and very old style Italy.

Thank Stalflare

Very Italian atmosphere in this Pizzeria. Their specialty is the "pizzone", a large pizza intended for 2 to share (I am ashamed to say that it appeared not much bigger than standard pizza sizes in the UK!). The toppings were delicious and the base excellent, though personally I prefer a thinner, crispier, base. The staff were very efficient, hard-working and... More

Catching up with friends just outside Florence they suggested this Pizzeria. I was not disappointed. A really tasty Pizzone ....a choice of three toppings on a large pizza to share. Delicious crispy base and scrummy toppings (the aubergine my favourite.) A good house wine, a choice of home made dolci. (Crema cattellana yum).Excellent service espescially considering they were so busy.

We were kindly invited by some relatives in Florence, who know the city inside out and and presumably knew how to pick a good place. In any case, we were very happy with the food (i had a fish starter and a tagliata main), and especially with the pleasant breeze in the comfortable outside terrace. Should not comment on the...

We had just arrived at our Hotel, the Villa Olmi and went looking for a Restaurant. On our Navigation system we actually were trying to locate the Restaurant next door which was closed and stumbled upon this wonderful place. It was a Sunday evening and the house was full but the staff was very accommendating. In addition, they had half... More
