For takeouts ir quick bites on the cheap by the slice, pasta or porchetta, this is the place. The pizza is ok since the crust is not as thin I would like but they make to order the toppings if you order more than 5 slices. Also the porchetta was very good which was recommended to us to try. Excellent. Will definitely come back for that. This spot is right the main town square and has terrace seatings. The place can get full during peak hours.

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!
