“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We ate here twice during our stay. You know It is the best pizza in Levanto when the locals recommend it! I never had a focaccia so thin, if you like anchovies, order the Pizzata. It has Stracchino cheese in between the layers. I could eat it everyday!
You need to order at the counter, so do not sit at the table waiting to be served or you will wait a long time.

Excellent place to have a quick dinner. The thin crust pizzas are made a wood stove. Friendly staff.

“Just the perfect pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We were looking for a place for a good pizza. This pizzeria is not about fuss and fake smiles, but about very friendly atmosphere, excellent pizzas and Belgian beers! Fantastic experience! The pizzas are preparee right in front of you with fresh products. The place is frequented by locals and tourists alike. You can see that the cook/owners enjoy their work. We were even offered limoncello before leaving. :)

“Authentic pizza found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

La Picea was the genuine article when it comes to pizza. The layout is basic with a few tables allowing around a dozen people to eat in. The owners are the chefs who are extremely friendly but make it clear with a sign that they do not provide table service but you are welcome to stay. You order at the counter and then collect glasses and cultery and find a seat. Once you complete the magnificent pizza you are encouraged to clear the table and place all the remnants in the recycling and waste bins provided.
It was a great and relaxing experience to be in such a place so be sure to try it.
