One of the best pizzas of my life. My favorite was the gusta pizza that was basically just a margarita pizza with arugula, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan shavings on top. The spicy salami one was also incredible/ you cant go wrong with a simple Margarita. Not many people know about it but it is basically just the gusta pizza restaurant-... More

When in Florence do not miss the opportunity to taste a pizza here. Eather day or night this is a must visit pizzeria. All tastes are unique. Usually hard to find a table here, try non-pick hours.

Superb pizza at really good prices. The large pizza Napoli was delicious though they were a bit tight with the olives.

Great quick casual stop for authentic pizzas. Nice little selection of cocktails - I had the Mojito. Super cheap, good service. Only negative is the seating is noisy, congested and too many smokers.

I wanted to take a minute and rate this very simple restaurant that's right on the Arnot in Florence. It's a bit farther south than the main tourist areas of Florence, though not completely. What we found here was an excellent staff of fun loving (mainly guys). They were friendly and cheerful. We loved this place so much we went... More

So we just stumbled upon this place looking for a quick lunch and it wound up being delicious. We ordered the Margherita pizza and it was fantastic. The red sauce was extremely flavorful and the crust was excellent as well. My only critique would be that I would have liked a few more basil leaves on the pizza, otherwise it... More

A smile never passed anyone's surly face. And the state of the bathroom was absolutely appalling. As there was no soap anywhere in sight, it was a mystery how the staff would be able to wash their hands before serving customers. So, if you are absolutely starving and have no other option, you may want to risk the rudeness and... More

At last, I was able to find down to earth, unassuming, delicious pizza. We came here late one evening (after having gelato from nearby Gelateria La Carraia- don't ask the reverse order) the pizza was just made to perfection with fresh ingredients and taste of heaven! The place is rustic and down to earth, staff are friendly and add to... More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches.
