Went in a little after 7 and the place was deserted, which made me a little apprehensive. This did not last long since the pizza took less than five minutes to arrive and it was mind blowing good. The flavors where very well balanced. The sauce did not overpower the other ingredients or vice versa. The dough was light and airy. Really enjoyed it. I just wish we had something like this in Florida since I am now spoiled.

Lured into this place by the friendly atmosphere and the chatty cashier. Kitchen and wood fired oven in the middle of the restaurant produces average salads and great pizzas at reasonable prices. Just a shame that everything (plates, cups, bowls) except the cutlery is disposable. Sure it appears they recycle, but how about reusable utensils in this day and age.

There are not many choices for pizza in Florence, but this pizza joint tosses great pies, just wish they would pass out a smile or two.

We enjoyed a quick stop on a rainy day, but our experience would have been more enjoyable if they made a little more effort with the guests.

One quirky item of note, they hang their laundry to dry in the back of the restaurant.

Walk in, order and at the little counter at front and wait for your name to be called when your food is ready. Kitchen is totally open; sitting nearby to watch is fun. Pizza was good. Didn't seem like anything particularly special though.

The pizza here is the real deal. That perfect chewy thin base, cooked in a wood fired oven.
We stumbled on this one by sheer luck and couldnt have been happier.
