Pizzeria Spera: famous for its rare female pizzaiolo and her dad who scolds rowdy customers (we were lucky enough to see him in action). Spera's pizza is the most American-like pizza I've seen in Italy...although I'm certain that's something no Italian pizzeria aspires to (and justly so). The slightly burnt cheese had a look very similar to that of Pizza Hut pizzas. Thankfully, it lacked the being-completely-drenched-in-greasiness factor, but it was missing flavor. There was absolutely NO FLAVOR to this pizza. Fabio and I both ended up adding salt; I have NEVER added salt to a pizza before! Despite these somewhat discouraging comments, I have to say this pizza is ambitious and has a lot of potential. The crust was good: thick (THE THICKEST IN FLORENCE), soft and crunchy. With the right toppings (and there were several combinations on the menu that looked inviting - like potatoes!), this could easily be a delicious (and super cheap) pizza for TWO (the crust is so filling, I left half a pizza on my plate). A fun atmosphere and friendly staff!

FABIO: 4/10
Una pizza strana, non sembra neanche una pizza. Forse hanno detto a chi la prepara che a Napoli la fanno con la pasta alta e lo ha preso troppo in parola! Qui tutto è troppo alto: la crosta, la base che è tipo una schiacciata. C'è così tanta pasta che copre il sapore di tutto il resto! Non che il resto sia un granché; il pomodoro sa di conserva, la mozzarella indecifrabile perchè troppo cotta, infatti è scura. Poi era talmente sciocca che ho dovuto aggiungere il sale a mano. Non so se non mi è riuscita di finirla perchè mi aveva riempito troppo o perchè non mi piaceva, ma a metà ero già sazio. Però il prezzo è bassissimo e i camerieri simpatici.

Dolce Annie, ti avevo consigliato di provare la pizza Fantasia con pasta integrale...a me era piaciuta moltissimo! Peccato non avere i vostri commenti su quella - anche perche' trovare pizze con pasta integrale non e' molto frequente!

ANNIE: Vanni, I promise to return to try the Fantasia and also the 3P (Pomodoro, Patate, Provola)! The Fantasia intimidated me with all its ingredients; I knew I wouldn't be able to make a dent in it on my own, and Fabio is pretty much a Margherita-type. I forgot to mention this in my review - that I don't like how there are no prices on the menu! For all I know, the Fantasia could be a 20 euro pizza!...Now that I've seen a receipt, I'm sure the price is probably reasonable/cheap! Oh, and I didn't see the option for integrale, but I would like to try that as well!
