“If you want pizza by the slice, the only place to go in Anghiari”

If you are looking for pizza by the slice, this is the only game in town. And the pizza is excellent, especially if you get it fresh out of the oven. There is a strategy involved with ordering at the favorite local hangout. You basically need to time it as such that you are at the counter waiting when the pizza comes out of the oven. The pizza's are usually made up of a variety of different types of slices. If you are next in line you will get first crack. The owner's are very nice. Not much in the way of service going on here, just walk up to the counter and order what you want.
We usually go next door to the bar and sit on their patio and order drinks and bring some slices over when we get hungry, which is encouraged by both venues.

Great pizza by the slice—always freshly baked and a variety of daily specials. Right on the main piazza.

I love this restaurant, it is very reasonably priced (€4 for a litre of red wine!) and once you get the hang of the self service it is very easy to organise. The pizza squares are great as you can choose different toppings for each of the squares you have. I usually have two. There is also a great selection of antipasti. Sitting alfresco there is a wonderful view of the town.. perfect for a budget night out!

This place is the heart of Anghiari. Tourists meet inhabitants and everybody enjoys the fresh food the excellent price/quality level and the atmosphere. Highlight is the home-made pizza, the square size permits to taste different flavours. Often you have specialities proposed ('ribollita', pasta, etc). On Friday noon you can get 'fritto misto' which I really enjoy. You can also order pizza to take away. You must also know : it is a SELF SERVICE. It is a very successful place, so be patient, get in contact with the other clients while you are waiting. Food is always fresh and this is quite rare nowadays.
Buon appetito!

Unique Experience
This small place located in Baldaccio square serves a combination of food items. The pizza is thicker than other places in in Anghiari and the toppings are fresh and different. There is always something different being offered. I don't even think there is a menu and if if there is no one uses it. Lots of locals frequent this small often crowded place where the food is so tasty that no one seems to mind the wait or cramped area. They are just waiting for the next tray of freshly baked pizza or another item of the days fare. It is an experience that reminds me of going to a chefs home and having him say "hey I made this different pizza today, you must try it. Also I made this other special pasta dish, you must have some if that too"! "Oh and you must try these freshly baked pasteries just out of the oven." The atmosphere in this cute spot is light hearted as the man behind the counter is continually joking with all the locals, making faces and putting on a show. My wife and I love to try places where the locals go because the experience is always better than the tourist traps. Don't miss the show, food and local flavor of this little spot tucked away in the right hand corner of the piazza! Bon Appetite.
