This buzzing local behind Piazza San Michele since 1960 is easy to spot – come noon look for the crowd packed around two tiny tables inside, spilling out the door or squatting on one of two streetside benches. Cecina, a salted chickpea pizza served piping-hot from the oven and castagnacci (chestnut cakes) are Felice's raison d'être.

Eat in or take away, it comes wrapped in crisp white paper and my is it good married with a chilled bottle of Maretti beer. To savour the full flavour of this tiny pizzeria, don't miss the snaps of owners Marino Grazzini (aka 'Felice') and wife Pasquina – in 1960 and today – pegged on string and strung in the window..
