This was such a surprise! We were walking past and saw lots of people standing up inside eating so of course we had to go in and see what the fuss was about. They sell delicious pizza pieces by weight (great value) and the rest of the shop was interesting too - we liked the look of the herb packages for bruschetta.

I fear people (Americans especially) will come to Italy, try pizza in any random shop and be extremely disappointed. That mostly bread version in most shops is ... well, mostly bread with some sauce & cheese on top for good measure.

If in Siena, try this pizza. This is pizza. It's not bread. The dough and crust are so incredibly flakey and light. You now will know good Italian pizza.

This is in a deli/grocery store. Know this. There will be no 'Menchetti' sign out front. There are large picturesque windows. The long deli counter can be seen through the windows. It looks like an upscale deli. Very modern. (In U.S., think: Panera Bread.) Inside in one corner is Menchetti's.

Many types of pizza available. Tried three. All very different; all excellent. Sold by the pound. Three slices were 5,50 euros.

You see it all being made. They also make bread and cookies. (You are on your own here. We went for pizza.) Water/coke sold at deli counter.

Less four impossible to get barstools on side of counter, everyone stands around tall tables to eat.

Staff all incredibly friendly. English use was a non-issue.

WC (restroom) available though not the best.

Location: Few blocks from main bus stop (from Firenze anyway). Address easy to locate on map.

Enjoy!

This bakery has simply the best pizza you will ever have. The breads and dolci too are splendid. Amazing value. I spent half euro for part if a loaf of bread.,yes
Four slices are by weight and usually ate five Euro to six.

Part of the pleasure is the staff, who are clearly happy and proud to be there.

It is a joy to watch them interact with the many customers. I would go back if there was a quiet hour just to talk more.

Please go early in your visit. If you are like my wife and I you will plan your meals around return s.

Best pizza I've had yet - I wish I had the recipe for the crust! It is light and flaky with various toppings to choose from. Great price too! Definitely seek it out when in Siena.

4-5 types of pizzas, just from the oven. Excellent and very cheap. Very friendly staff and funny ambiance. To take away or eat on the tables.
