Berbere Craft Pizza & Beer in Florence

Berbere is a small chain across Italy and yummers!

Looking for a fun evening meal, I found Berbere through Google. One of the reviews had mentioned a vegan pizza. Hubby adores pizza and when in Italy…

This place has an honest to goodness wood burning oven that cooks pizza super fast. I sat right at the bar where pizza is prepared and really enjoyed watching how simple they made it look.


Although not labeled, I asked for the vegan option. It is seasonal and during my visit they had a beet cream pizza with sautéed green onion and olive.


The dough with beet cream was placed in the oven with onion and olive added at the end. A tasty combination, but would have benefited from more beet cream.

Hubby adored his pizza of tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil. Not vegan, but he thinks it is the best pizza he has ever had. We also started with a bowl of olives that were very tasty.

Best part of Berbere? It’s half a block from Sweethings. Us and another couple both stopped at Sweethings to pick up dessert and then headed to Berbere for dinner with our little boxes. The other couple, Florentines, said we had gotten the best dessert and pizza in town. They also got the beet cream pizza.

After dinner we walked back across the Arno River and stopped to watch the sunset. A glorious evening!

Berbere gets four out of five vegan cupcakes. It was wonderful, but only one option and a bit dry. Worth enjoying when in Florence. Yummers!
