Went here based on recommendations found online, and was initially wary because of all of this talk about the Pizza Nazi. We got there early, before 7, so the place was still closed and the Pizza Nazi was eyeballing me waiting outside his door. Although when 7 came, we went in, and he was such a sweetheart.

My wife and I ordered a pizza each, and he made my wife's pizza in the shape of a heart LOL. I asked him for a beer while he was still cooking in the oven and he graciously obliged. The pizzas are so simple, the ingredients are sparse, but the flavor? Wow, just Wow. Will definitely go back over and over again. These pizzas have been the best of our lifetimes. Credits to Vincenzo!

Go here for pizza! There is a seating area off to the side of the restaurant where you can sit and watch Enzo (Vincenzo) make your pizza. He is phenomenal and his pizza's are the best in Florence. He is only there for about 2 hours a night and the place gets packed so if you just want pizza, make sure you are there at 7 when he is there. We got there at about 10 till 7 and he let us come in and take a seat. It was awesome watching him fire up the wood fired oven and the smell was wonderful. He make our pizza in the shape of a heart and it was amazing. We shared 1 margarita pizza and had 2 beers and our bill was maybe12 euro. We went here on our last night and wish we would have known about this place sooner!

We went here on our last night in Florence and would recommend it highly. It's nothing fancy just a couple of rooms where they serve amazing pizza with the tastiest dough we've had since Naples. There are only 3 types of pizza (€8) we tried two of them. Inexpensive drinks and unusual beers. I would highly recommend trying this pizzeria.

We ate here at the weekend and although it was busy I was very impressed with the service and the quality of food. The ambience is really nice and it's slap bang in the middle of the centre.
