Two Pizza Spots in Florence

Great Italian Pizza

Author: The Traveling Professor/Thursday, August 23, 2018/Categories: Italy

Rate this article:
Pizzeria and Trattoria Nerone
With its eclectic and kitschy decor, walking into Trattoria Nerone is like walking into a random antique storage facility.  The mismatched furniture and overbearing chandeliers make for a sightly mealtime.  We are sure that the waiters enjoy watching the faces that tourists make as they explore all the baubles with their eyes.  One should definitely go to Nerone with the intent of ordering pizza.  The crust is bubbly and toasted, with an assortment of meat and vegetable toppings.  Though most people will encounter other tourists dining at this location, it still full of many good quality, flavorful choices. 
Address: Via Faenza, 95/97R, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy

Gusta Pizza

Another tourist flocking pizzeria is Gusta Pizza near Sante Croce, and the pizza is worth the wait.  Gusta offers a very simple menu, and the pizzas seem to fly in and out of the brick oven that can be seen over the counter.  Diners sit at communal tables made out of barrels and glass tops.  Each pizza is a personal size with fluffy crust  Do not skrimp - order the Caprese with the melt-in-your-mouth buffala mozzarella cheese.  Open six days a week for lunch and dinner but not in between.  Order, take a number, take a seat, color on your receipt and add it to the collage!
Address: Via Maggio, 46/red, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
