Are you in Lecce and looking for a place to eat a good, tasty pizza? Don’t worry, I’ll give you the right information. Never will you imagine where I’ll send you! Read on and you’ll find out!

Place and services

The pizzeria is called “Fratelli La Bufala”. It’s a chain that wants to bring to the world the tradition of Neapolitan cooking (therefore, the best and most famous pizza that exists). It is located at number 17/19 via Mogenico, near St Oronzo Square in the historical centre of the city.

The staff are highly qualified and friendly, the decor is cozy and the restaurant is on two levels, so you can sit near the two big windows and watch the world outside or take a seat towards the back, which offers more privacy.

The menu is refined, with delicious Neapolitan recipes. Almost all the dishes are prepared with buffalo mozzarella. The best of the best is the PIZZA: tasty, genuine and cooked to perfection. A little cold olive oil on top is the final touch for the true taste of the original pizza.

There are also desserts! If you’ve had enough of Italian cuisine and are missing a taste of England, be sure to try the cheesecake made with buffalo ricotta cheese, topped with a flavour of your choice. The price is affordable and, believe me, it is special.


I recommend this pizzeria because it is a place where you can find friendliness, quality and a taste you’ll never forget. Try and you will see it’s worth it!


Italian meals

In Italy, people generally eat three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Italian people like a sweet breakfast, for example, biscuits, cake or bread with jam. We drink a cup of milky coffee, a cappuccino or a tea. For breakfast in my family, my daughter has a cup of milk with cornflakes, my husband has a little cup of coffee with milk and biscuits and I have a big cup of tea with milk or lemon and some cake like pasticciotto, a typical sweet breakfast food in my region.

Italian people really enjoy having lunch. We like to eat pasta like tagliatelle or lasagne with tomato sauce, vegetables or a special sauce called ragù. In Puglia, a typical type of pasta is orecchiette. We can also eat meat with salad or fish with vegetables. After lunch, we like to drink a cup of espresso to signal the end of the meal.

For dinner in my family, we like to eat pizza, cheese, legume or vegetable soup or sandwiches. At the end of lunch or dinner, we often eat fruit for dessert. In my family, we usually eat just one course for each meal, but a lot of Italian people eat two or three courses at each meal.
