“The pizza is good, the experience terrible... Go elsewhere”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Having lived in Florence for 6 years, I have often been here for a pizza. After tonight, never again! The pizza is good, but the experience disastrous! In 3 we paid €60 for a bottle of wine and 3 pizzas. I was running 5 mins late and my friends were hassled from the moment they sat down to move tables to a table for 2. During our meal we were asked 3 times if we wanted coffee, when there was still wine in our glasses and pizza on the table. Then the bill was brought and we were asked to leave before we had finished as they needed our place. I complained to the waitress, who shrugged and told me this was not her problem. There are lots of other good pizza places in Florence at the same prices or less. Do yourself a favour, ignore the positive reviews and go elsewhere. A terrible experience and one not to be repeated.

Da evitare.

“BEST PIZZA EVER!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I've been a lot of places in Italy, but this pizza place definitely tops the list. The name translates to the pizza artist, and that's what they are. AMAZING!!!

“Best meal we have in Florence”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We took a pizza to go in this restaurant and I should say that this was the best meal we have in Florence this time. All seats were taken and we had no chance to be in. The restaurant looks nice. There is big furnace at the place for making pizza. So the taste is perfect.
Prices are OK for these delicious courses. There are only two minus for this place: no enough place inside to be able take a dinner right at the place and location is a little bit on the outskirts of center.
