Il Pizzaiuolo

Via de' Macci 113r
Open 12.30-3pm, 7.30pm-12.30am Mon-Sat. Closed August.
Price: €13.00

This no nonsense Pizzeria is one of the most authentic in town and its simple, white tiled dining room always bustling with locals and tourists. The pizza’s here are of the Neapolitan variety, meaning they have light, fluffy bases rather than the super-thin bases preferred by the Florentines. Quite simply they are delicious. They are the kind of pizzas impossible to recreate at home unless you have a wood fired oven, the best mozzarella, the freshest tomatoes and the finest olives and capers. Even then you are unlikely to have the magic of the pizza chefs in Il Pizzaiuolo.

Caffe Italiano

Via Isola delle Stinche 13r

Adjacent to the upmarket osteria of the same name (also recommended for those on a bigger budget), this tiny pizzeria is ultra authentic – so much so that there are only three variations on offer; margherita, Napoli and marinara. The mozzarella di bufala used is top quality and if you come late (after 10.30pm) you might be lucky enough to be seated in the elegant osteria next door.

Santa Lucia

Via Ponte alle Mosse 102r
Open 7.30pm-12.30am Mon, Tue, Thurs-Sun.

Considered by many locals to be the best pizza in town, it is worth straying from the usual tourist areas to seek this place out. It gets busy soon after opening so it’s likely you’ll have to queue. Your reward will be perfect Neapolitan style pizza and the knowledge that you have made the effort to seek out a place renowned by the Florentines themselves.
