Fast, pizza establishment on the southside of the Arno river in Florence
Time for a pizza somewhere in Florence city and a search of various options and word of mouth on the streets of Florence led us to this establishment that used a josper oven and produced our Marinara (€4.50) and Calabrese (€7.50) pizzas within 6 minutes. It has a diner feel and as a restaurant is not very noticeable from the outside but very busy and popular in the inside with a first come, first served policy and a short wait for an available barrel to sit at.
I found the pizzas here obviously reminiscent of those in the ever-expanding Franco Manca chain in London, but would seem that you can simply find these options all over Florence. The dough was wonderful and although the collective thought was that the pizza served in Cucina Torcicoda was a fraction better, I never thought I would say this about a pizza, but I actually enjoyed dipping the crust of the gorgeous dough around the edge of the pizza in olive oil more than the actual pizza topping itself.
Lovely pizzas here, served fast in a very causal setting (plastic cups for wine and beer) and if you are on the south side of the river, you could do a lot worse than go for this drop in option.
