Best place to eat pizza and a really tasty cecina, the best I ever tried. The environment is not fancy but comfy, the pieces are low for the quality offered. I really recommend this place. P.s. It you are on diet avoid to come at rizieri

This place is an institution in Viareggio, incredibly popular with the locals. Not a lot of choices for pizzas and only few tables available, so be prepared to eat standing up and be happy with the local version of pizza margherita. However, if you are ready for new flavors and a true local experience go for the "cecina" (che-chee-nah) and... More

Can't judge the service, we used takeaway. The pizza was wonderful: well combined and with juicy sauce, not dry as others do. I strongly recommend this place.

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

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.

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
