Delicious pizza fast!

After having had several 2 hour Italian dinners, it was a welcome relief to enjoy delicious pizza FAST! We ordered several different styles of pizza, served on boards, and ate while standing outside. Really good!

Great pizza al taglio. We went to the one on Via degli Ammiratti - just in front of the art gallery. Just perfect. And the piazzaiolo is always smiling.

Order a square of pizza, pay per weight. Easy to take away while exploring the citycenter. Open from 19.00 in the evening. Our kids were very hungry and we had the first pizza of that evening. Very good taste and a lot of different choices.

My husband and I, with various visiting friend stayed in Lecce for the month of September. We all decided this was our favorite. You can get slices in the size you want and they have many interesting toppings. The crust is perfect, at least for my taste, not too think or too thin. There is only a few outside seats... More

Excellent pizza in town. They cut it in front of you and a really friendly staff! The salami pizza is nicely spicy!

Hands down best pizza al taglio in Italy. Such a variety of pizza and service is exceptionally fast. Over the course of the summer we came here at least twice a week. The one with potatoes and truffle is the best!

We spent two weeks in Lecce and tried several pizza shops. This is by far the best pizza al taglio we ever had. Crisp bottom and delicious toppings. New flavours every hour. The TARTUFO is a must try. Also great artificial beers and friendly staff. Lots of cool people on the street outside.

This tiny pizza shop opens at noon daily. Not all pizzas on the menu are always available, but you are sure to enjoy the ones that are. Stefano (the man who was there when we went) speaks limited English, but he was very nice, allowing us to sample some of the pizzas before we decided which ones we wanted. We... More

We were staying nearby at the Hotel President and were pleased to find really good pizza just down the street. The options are creative--salmon, truffle oil with potato, spicy sausage and more! You decide how much you want and the server cuts the slice and heats it to a perfect temperature. The server was efficient, friendly, spoke good English and... More
