Very busy indeed, but completely worth the wait! Some of the best pizza you can find, when it's fresh it just melts in your mouth. For the price it's likely the best you can find in Lecce, at least for us. The staff is friendly and fast, the energy in the street is buzzing and the pizza is always hot!

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!
