I've chosen this restaurant because it was on a list of the best 10 pizza place in and around Florence. It is located in a little village famous for the production of terracotta. The place is simple but not plain. They use organic flour of different types, (and sometimes it tastes a little bit like rope). Pizza could be served... More

TEN minutes! That's one of the fastest take out pizzas I've had. Definitely rivals Papa John's in Coral Gables for time. The taste? Ummm... let's see... Chianti vs Miami??? You guess (even though I used to go to U of M). Very crowded to eat in, but extremely lively and popular with the locals. If you're around the area, don't... More

By the time our pizza arrived, the place was filling up -- and so were we, on a really tasty pie and a very nice... More

Was recommended to us by a local wine tasting guide and didn't disappoint was the best meal of our tour of Italy. Wood fired oven pizza and full of locals. Well worth the drive from Florence.

It is only recently that I discovered this nice restaurant near my parents' place in Greve in Chianti. The Pizza is excellent (I like very much the vegetarian pizza with season's vegetables), but there are many good choices in the menu. I live in Switzerland and I am always amazed by the incredibly cheap prices! Superb value for money!

The pizza at Lo Spela's was a superb experience! One of the best of my entire life (and I have tried many and more). Super fresh and tasty ingredients, blended together in perfect combinations! And on the top of that, we were amazed by the cheap bill! Too bad it was such a chaos! I am not sure if we... More

The pasta chitarra is a must try! The staff are very friendly. The location is unusual (below the shops) and there is no view but they have still managed to create a lovely atmosphere.
