Pizza is like that little black dress we all have in the wardrobe. Pizza is like a nice pair of shoes. Pizza is good in winter, in summer, with friends, at home in the carton when we are alone and depressed, in a super chic place with our sweet-half .. in short, pizza is for every palate and it’s right for every occasion!
And if you are in Florence and you suddenly want to eat pizza???
We never say no to pizza!
So I propose here a mini guide to my 3 favorite Florentine pizzeria.
All 3 start with the F of Florence. In all 3 certainly you will not miss the right pizza for you.
And they are located in 3 different and strategic points of the city.
So, whenever you want a you could have a beautiful red, white, colored, hot and steaming pizza!
F as … FINISTERRAE
This restaurant has really wide choice of dishes always very good, from land to sea. But every time I go there, and I promise myself to eat something different, at the end, I inevitably take the pizza!
Pizza at this place is really one of the best I’ve ever eaten in my life!
It is located in Piazza Santa Croce next to the homonymous and famous cathedral. It is composed of 5 rooms each of which has a different name and concept. One evening you can eat in “Marseille” or “Naples”. But if you are here in summer ask for the beautiful garden, you will not even seem to be in the heart of Florence.
In the menu, in addition to the most classic pizzas, you will find a lot of very tasty variations. Do not miss the wholemeal dough for those who, keep themeselves in shape, do not want to give up the pizza.
The wonderful things about this place are also the desserts. Taste pizza but leave some space for the dessert because it is really worth it !!!
F as … FIRE MATTO
If you are near the central station of SMN take a walk up to Piazza Indipendenza and there you will find another of my favorite pizzeria in Florence: Fuoco Matto!
As the name says in this place you will find the fire (fuoco), with which you can do many things, pizza but also a beautiful Florentine steak, typical dish of the city! And of course you will also find a little crazy (matto). Because the Florentines are a bit crazy and then, to make a good pizza everyone knows that it takes a bit of madness!
This restaurant has a very country chic style and combines the 3 great passions of Florentine people, in addition to pizza, of course, the grill and the wine!
If you want to try this pizzeria you have always remember to book because it is often fully booked not only by visitors but also by locals!
F as … FERMENTO 1989
The Oltrarno area has always been defined as the place of locals.
That part of the city less traveled by tourists and foreigners. That part of the city where you can find small shops of artisans or where to eat and be sure to find some locals going around for shopping.
And even for this part of town I have a really top pizzeria for you!
It’s called Fermento 1989.
Here in addition to the excellent pizza made with dough up to 120h rising, you will find the warmth of the two owners Gianluca and Vincenzo who will fascinate you with the stories of love and passion for their work.
In fact, the place is very small and seems to be almost at home.
A few tables and the counter of the wood-burning oven.
I definitely recommend booking a table to try their fantastic pizzas.
And if you want to taste something different, in addition to the classic pizza verace, here you will find the Neapolitan panozzo, the stuffed Calzone the Fermento Pala, the F’cazz. In short, a magical and extraordinary union of culinary cultures that come from the lands where the pizza was born in the south of Italy with the Tuscan traditions.
The icing on the cake is the dessert, obviously the Neapolitan babbà!
