Vico del Carmine

40/42r Via Pisana
Florence , Italy

At this lively pizzeria in the Oltrarno, Neapolitan-style pies are served in a setting designed to resemble a vico (side street) in Naples, with miniature lights and clothes lines strung between the bare walls. Using fresh ingredients imported from Campania, the chefs prepare pizzas according not only to tradition, but also to Ministry of Agriculture regulations, meaning each pie is cooked in a wood-fired oven that reaches 905 degrees. The result is the soft, bendable texture that characterizes authentic pizza napoletana. Try the pizza a chiummenzana, which has a ricotta-stuffed crust and toppings of cherry tomato and smoked scamorza cheese.
