They have a sit down place too but we chose the typical takeout which is charged by the kilo. We had a thicker crust pizza (which has not been the norm so far in Italy) and the wonderful Farinata. Have to try that! Inexpensive and good pizza. Very limited area to stand and eat. Take it to the street.

My wife and I stumbled on this place by chance and were blown away! The restaurant was inexpensive, but incredibly delicious -- It is no wonder that it was packed with locals coming to get some of their exceptional farinata! We got farinata and also tried their pizzas -- both were excellent! For 3 pizzettes and 2 large servings of... More

Well known for its famous Farinata, a local chick pea pancake specialty combined with Gorgonzola cheese, onions or other toppings. Kids will love their cheesy pizza. Take out or dine in.

We had our last dinner in La Spezia here and it was yummy and really cheap! We had farinata with pesto, two pizzas and a carafe of wine for 20€. Everything is fresh made (you can see the oven), food comes out fast and it tasted amazing! Grazie !

This is a great place for a good pizza al taglio or focaccia for a little price. Must try the farinata when there.. a thin pastry made of chickpeas. Was delicious!

If you like pizza that tastes somewhere between Pizza Hut and Hungry Howie, this is the place for you. Enough said

We loved this pizzeria and would have returned a second time if they served salad. The house wine is good, the pizza is great!

Love La Pia experience. Best Pizza ever!!! The traditional La Pia located in the heart of downtown has the charm of the Italian tradition. La Pia offers the facility to grab a slice of delicious warm pizza to go or stay indoors and enjoy a well deserved jar of wine while enjoying your fresh wood oven Pizza. Amazing service &... More

Loved this wee place simple good pizza if you want fancy this is not the place but if you like simple, easy going, non expensive food this is perfect. This is a place the locals come to eat so it's not that touristy but they do have a menu in English if you need it.

Was surprised to eat that bad of pizza in Italy. We got a small plate with a burnt on the sides, tones of tomato sauce from can, and just a little bit of cheese. Must say that the service was kind and the price was quite cheap.

Thank Asaf T
