Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I didn't expect to enjoy the thick crust but it was heaven. Like the water bed of pizza. Three choices cooked to perfection and oodles of cheese. Best pizza ever ever eaten and I've had many. Half the price of a rip off in Rome...and free prosecco to boot. Divine, only sorry it was a port visit for a dayMore

We actually went to Gustarium twice because the pizza was so good. The dough is proved for 48 hours, which results in wonderful fluffy, thick crusts that are soft and yielding to the bite, and the toppings are fresh and combine excellently. The staff are...really friendly and nice. I would consider moving to Florence so I could have this pizza multiple times per week, and I am not joking.More

I was surprised with the unique type of pizza they make. No added yeast, 48 hours preparation for a very unique texture and absolute mind blowing ingredients. Super nice familiar atmosphere in the restaurant. The chef is very attentive to detail. Awesome place!

The absolute best pizza we have had in Italy. A must try ! We came in on Sunday afternoon, where unfortunately they were all SOLD OUT. But the owner somehow managed to find a few pieces for us to try. Much appreciated ☀️👏🏼🍾

Big call I know, and I haven’t tried every pizza in the world. But this place is awesome and has to be up there with the best. A must do in Florence. I was sad when I started to fill up because I just wanted...to keep eating! The bases are the best I’ve ever had, tasty by themselves, not just a plain dough to support the toppings. And the toppings are so good. Coming from Australia, we find it exhausting always stumbling into table service. We much prefer to order on arrival and get a drink and sit down and wait. And when we want more food or drinks we simply go and get them rather than fighting for a waiter’s attention. This was perfect for us. I always found it very cheap for what it’s worth. We’ve paid double that for food and service that’s half as good in Italy. The staff are awesome, super friendly and happy to speak English. We went back twice because once wasn’t enough and we were recognised and welcomed back, something that will never happen at the busier places in Florence. If you’re after a traditional Italian pizza, or a romantic candle lit Italian meal, this probably isn’t the place, but I guarantee this place will be better, more relaxed and a more authentic modern Italian experience.More

This isn't really a restaurant but more a hole-in-the-wall that serves you the best pizza you can imagine. You are able to sit down and enjoy a drink with your food, however. I got here on the first day at around 13:45 and they were...completely sold out. The owner recommended that I come back early the next day, and so I did. Arriving at noon sharp, I was one of the first customers and there was still plenty of pizza left. The owner recognized me and gave me 2 drinks on the house. (Nice touch!) They have 8 different pizzas to choose from and you pay by weight. As I do not eat any pork, I only had the 4 vegetarian options available. While I am a firm believer that pizzas should have meat on them, all 4 vegetarian options were mouthwatering. The dough was fluffy and crispy at the same time, and you could really taste all the different fresh ingredients on each of the slices. Do not miss out on this place, and arrive early! You will not regret it.More

The waiter was so kind. He said that the pizza crust is usually soft, but I don’t like it that way. I asked him to cook it my way and it came out perfectly black so when you bite in it crumbles. Perfect. Amazing!!!!!

Pizza has got a special different taste, It is possible to choose pieces in different kinds. Staff is very profesional and firendly. There are few tables so some clients had to take food with themselves. Prices are quite good

The best lunch we have in town. The staff was very nice, but the best was the food. We highly recomend the carbonara sandwich, it was so so good. We also recomend to arrive early to have the possibility to choose more options of sandwiches.
