Just behind the Verdi Theatre there is a nice medieval palace with an elegant restaurant. This is not the place that I want to tell you about, I want to tell you about a small door beside it. Pizzeria del Caffè Italiano has no sign, if you look inside you will see a big wood-oven with a strange person dressed in white in front of it. This person is Vincenzo (but everybody calls him Enzino) and he has the best pizzaiolo in Florence.
He is from Naples and this is a guarantee in itself. The name of this place is the same as the restaurant I mentioned earlier but the atmosphere is totally different, informal and loud.
Enzino does only three kinds of pizza, Margherita, Napoli or Marinara, so do not ask for any other strange ones. Even concerning drinks, the offer is limited to only one kind of bottled beer, water or coke. There is always a special attention for the ladies from Enzino and if he likes you, you may receive a heart-shaped pizza! Prices are not cheap for pizzas, but they are really delicious.
