Florence, Italy is well known for foods such as Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine Steak), fagioli (beans) and Cinghiale (wild boar) to name just a few – but what about the pizza in Florence? I’ve tried more pizza in Florence than any other place in Italy, and I can tell you that the Florentines have nailed it. The pizza in Florence is good, really good!

They call this place a Florentine institution, and after visiting you will understand why. Serving traditional Neapolitan pizza, indulge in one of the seven pizzas they offer here at PizzAgnolo. If you’ve ever tasted pizza in Naples, then you’ll love this place!

I return here every time I visit this city as it simply makes me smile. Don’t miss this delicious pizza in Florence.

2. Pizzeria Spera

The best traditional pizza in Florence is found right here at Pizzeria Spera. I love the location, found near the Santa Maria Novella Station and Fortezza da Basso. The base of the pizza here is thick and blisters perfectly in the wood-fired oven.

Fresh ingredients are generous and a good range of pizza toppings to choose from. You’ll find that pizza in Florence can be kinda expensive, but not here – pizza is affordable and delicious! The staff are fun and super friendly too.

A hidden gem close to Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the city’s most iconic viewpoints. With 40+ types of pizza and great calzones too, this place knows a thing or two about what pizza in Florence should taste like.

The ‘white tiger’ pizza is fantastic. The best thing is that you can get a cheap wine or beer to go with your pizza and enjoy it in this tiny, yet super friendly restaurant. Highly recommended.

I stumbled upon this restaurant after returning from my trip discovering the best of Rome in 3 days

Fratelli Cuore is located inside the main train station, so for convenience, it’s fantastic! It came as quite a surprise at how good the food is here, and I’d go as far as saying that it serves some of the best pizza in Florence.

I loved seeing that it was full of train station employees – always a good sign that the food is good and affordable too. The perfect place to enjoy pizza in Florence is at the train station (or any other dishes) before you depart.
