Great option for a quick, casual lunch. Delicious and reasonably priced. Pizza is charged by weight and served on greaseproof paper.

Crazy busy, super cheap and delicious. Wish it would have been easier to find chile oil or flakes to add some heat. Otherwise, great crust, tasty sauce and top notch meats. Highly recommend.

I went there with a friend from Viareggio. I discover a very small and typical place. They serve pizza fresh and home made every hour. Portions are big and you can eat outside at the tables even if they don't belong to the pizzeria. We ask a Coke at the next door bar and sit down. In a certain way... More

You'll walk past it unless you know this hidden gem - great slabs of fresh pizza sold by the kilo. Eat by the sea or sit at the bar Caffè Argo next door

Usual visit to one of our fav Pizza Place in the Tuscany coast. My fav is the Pizza ai Funghi (Mushroom Pizza), but there are a lot of choices, just try to catch the large tray soon after come out of the oven... Next time around, will be a due stop...

The pizza was not bad and very affordable. Some tables just outside allow you to people watch. The bar next door will come around and ask if you'd like to drink something with the pizza you just bought.

When you're in Italy, you'll see a LOT of pizza joints. And almost every single one of them will have Napoli or Venetian style pies, meaning thin, or wafer thin, crust. If you're in the mood for a little carb loading though, good luck finding a pizza that will do the trick. In the seaside town of Viareggio, there exists... More

Really good pizza from here, sold by weight, but good value. Right on the main promenade. You can takeaway or sit at the tables from the bar next door and order a beer, which then makes for a very enjoyable lunch. Try the pizza with potato or the seafood options with anchovies.
