Il Vecchio E Il Mare Florence – Best Pizza In Florence?

restaurants
Restaurants

Their pizzas are nothing short of incredible, thanks to a carefully crafted dough left to rise for 36 hours. But remember to save room for dessert!

I have already talked about Via Gioberti (make sure to check that article as well!) in my previous posts, and Il Vecchio E Il Mare shines as one of the street's standout stars. Step into their enchanting courtyard adorned with fairy lights, and you'll be captivated by the atmosphere. Each visit to this restaurant has been truly memorable.

What makes Il Vecchio E Il Mare special is their exceptional seafood dishes, showcasing the freshest catches from the sea with creativity and expertise.

However, what truly sets them apart is their remarkable pizza, which has earned an impressive 33rd ranking in Italy according to the renowned 50TopPizza. Their pizzas are nothing short of incredible, thanks to a carefully crafted dough left to rise for 36 hours. The result is a pizza so light and airy that it practically melts in your mouth. They offer different dough options, including gluten-free choices, and if the waiter suggests trying the alternative dough made with alternative grains, I highly recommend listening to them. You won't be disappointed!

And of course, remember to save room for dessert. Il Vecchio E Il Mare boasts a great selection of both classic Italian favorites and innovative creations. Their desserts provide the perfect finale to an already extraordinary dining experience.
