Via Torta, 5 Phone (+39) 055 265 4329
One of the best pizzas in town and right smack dab in the middle of the city. Upon entering, make sure to ask for the pizza side (off to the left) and enjoy one of their pizzas from the menu (including those found no where else) or one from their menu of the day. You also have the choice of choosing between a normal crust or multigrain. Follow it up with a great dessert and you’re all set. If you can’t choose just one, they offer pizza tastings!
Via Borgo Allegri 50R Phone (+39) 055 234 7498
You can sit down here, but in our opinion, it’s the best option for take away in this city. Here, not only are the types of pizzas out of this world, but you get to choose the size that you want of every piece, meaning you can try them all in one sitting! The woman that greets you is welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable giving La Divina an extra bonus aspect.
Da Gherardo (no website)
Borgo S. Frediano, 57 Phone (+39) 055 205 2888
Over on the other side of the river, a little bit out of the way, but still in a great area of Florence surrounded by great bars and a nice flow of Florentines, you will find Da Gherardo. Often recommended by Italians themselves. This place is basically a hole in the wall and we say that in the nicest way possible but there is a chance you will have to get it to go. Nonetheless, it’ll taste great wherever you end up eating it.
Via Maggio, 46r Phone (+39) 055285068
At Gusta Pizza, you will certainly feel the love with their heart shaped pizzas and happy faces. A popular spot for the American students, but with good reason: the pizza is delicious.
