Nice people, good pizza

A popular pizzeria as it seems. We were served very kindly and the pizza tasted good. Be aware that it's not a napoli style pizza, but made with a smoother dough prepared/fried in an oiled pan. Very fillling that is, but nonetheless tasty.

A wonderful discovery if you want 'authentic!' If you've never eaten cecina, go to da Rizieri to experience this local culinary treat--a great alternative to the also very good pizzas served here, too. For about €23 two people can get 2 generous slices each of cecina, a green salad (enough for two), half a carafe of house wine, water and... More

Pizza and cecina so good, so fresh and hot, you better blow on it or you will burn your tongue. When your taste buds ask for pizza, this is definitely a choice place. Sometimes it is so busy that you have to elbow your way in to get a table, especially on a Sunday afternoon. The crust is incomparable. Satisfying... More

We had this pizzeria recommended by friends and had lunch here twice while visiting Viareggio. The pizzeria is small and very basic and the menu is short and simple. This place makes the best pizza we've ever had and the queue of locals ordering food from this place during the lunch hours speaks for itself. Even though the menu is... More

Been in this place dozens of times and always spectacular. My advice is to ask "cecina" as an appetizer (it is like a chickpeas cake)and then fritto misto for everybody (mixt fried fresh fish). Great souvenirs!

Cecina and Margherita pizzas only. But boy are these products perfectly made. It is a take-way place with some basic tables & chairs - forget that and enjoy the outstanding products. You visit this pizzeria at lunch or early evening for a snack and pure enjoyment. Good location downtown Viareggio.

I know an Italian who drove the 4.5 hours from Como to Viareggio because, when he phoned his friend, he was eating cecina at Rizieri, and he couldn't bear to miss out. Speaks volumes, doesn't it. I've tried cecina elsewhere but it wasn't anything like the creamy other-worldly Tuscan delight that is offered at this pizzeria. I'd previously eaten in... More

This is basically a take away with a small sitting area attached. Rizieri is most famous for the Cecina and deservedly so! It is the best in Italy. Pizza is not bad either.
