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

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.

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

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Lecce stop by here. Frequented by locals all day long this is artisan pizza by slice. I loved the pumpkin pizza( a pure substituted for red sauce) with pancceta. But all of them are excellent. They heat it up in a small oven just for slices so you get a hat... More
