This place could serve the best pizza in the world. I have tried pizza on every continent except Australia. This i realla my favorite. I consider going back to Lecce just to try som more pizzas at Pizzicotto. If you are a pizzalover you just have to go here. Note there are no tables inside.

Fun spot to grab great pizza. They have a number of yummy types and they cut what you want, weigh it and that's how the price is determined. You can try a bit of each.

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

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!
