Make a reservation or get there early - when we arrived there were four people in the restaurant .......within 20 mins the place... More

Pizza in Italy is amazing but the pizza at this place is unbelievable. It was hands-down the best pizza that we had in our two week stay in Italy. We had the mushroom pizza with buffalo mozzarella as well as the eggplant pizza. It is the best pizza I have ever had in my life! The restaurant is popular so... More

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... More

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!!!

There is big furnace at the place for making pizza. So the taste is perfect. Prices are OK for... More

Nice and cosy restaurant. Friendly staff, although we we pressed to leave at the end because people were waiting outside. We had 2 pizza's. Toppings and tomato sauce were perfect. The crust however could and should be improved: undercooked and soggy.

West there yesterday and had the burrata (creamed mozzarella) and the buffalo to start with. Both were excellent but huge. There was no way to finish it. We had ordered two pizzas's - both were great but especially The one with salsicca and rape was really good. Ended up asking for a doggy bag for the rest of the pizza... More

the best pizza we had in Italy and it's not just the pizza! Everything we tasted there was very very tasteful! The only bad thing is that tis is really really busy and we will have to wait to find a table and you'll have the feeling that you must eat quickly so that someone else can have your table!... More
