Brothers Matteo and Salvatore hail from Calabria and opened their first Berberè pizzeria in 2010 (which was awarded ′Tre Spicchi′ by food guide Gambero Rosso in 2018). Their first outpost in Florence takes up a corner space in the quiet piazza de′ Nerli in San Frediano with a recent addition, in 2018, opening its doors in bustling Santa Croce.

With a focus on artisanal pizza made with sourdough that is rested for at least 24 hours, toppings are seasonal, with many organic. Each pizza sliced into eight pieces to encourage sharing between friends. They also have gluten-free options all washed down with artisan beers. Via dei Benci 7
