Florence is an art historian’s dream. The Galleria dell'Accademia bursts with works by Michelangelo, who is entombed within the frescoed walls of the Basilica di Santa Croce. Budding photographers can snap pics of the Ponte Vecchio bridge, and serious shoppers can spend a blissful afternoon wandering the shops of Piazza Santo Spirito. Tuscan cuisine pays homage to the region’s bounty. Swipe a hunk of crusty bread across a pool of local olive oil and you’ll be instantly transported to your happiest place.

Visit the first Brunelleschi Palazzo, in the hearth of Florence, and experience a Gourmet's lounge with a flavour of contemporary art. Open from 12.00 To 15.00 and from 19.00 to 23.00 , lunch and dinner. You can teste our traditional and creative cousine. is better to reserve a table thank you soo much.
We checked tripadvisor for a lunch nearby and La Buchetta came up with great reviews. What a flop. Clearly a place that is over-reaching in its creativity but not in a good way. The antipasto was prosciutto (actually good) with stracciatella, with the aim of differentiating from the classical mozzarella combo. But guess what, would be better off with the original instead of the runny and more milkier-tasting option. As mains we had one pasta that was so memorable I can’t even recall after less than a week and another tagliatelle with duck ragu and cocoa. I remember that one because the duck in the beef ragu was boiled to death and the cocoa powder sprinkle didn’t work at all. For desert, the red berries mousse was good, light and not too rich. If the meal was priced in line with other classic osterias I would have given it a break but being overpriced just tipped my scale to a full 3 stars. Enjoy any of the more affordable let-downs instead.

Gastronomic delicatessen,wine shop, panini shop,tuscan focaccia bread. Two huge dining rooms. We serve pasta dishes,and meat or vegetarian dishes. A very diverse menu. We use Italian and Tuscan products chosen personally by the owner Pino with his twenty yeàrs of expertise.
I was a student in Florence 9 years ago and returned back for a vacation with my husband. Pino's was the FIRST meal I insisted we have upon arriving and it was truly better than I remember. Pino is still there, as charming and welcoming as ever (English speaking welcome), and serves what I consider the best panini I have ever had. Crisp, salty bread, delicious ingredients and so affordable. Lunch for two is 9 euros! Whatever Sandwich you order, make sure to add his pesto!!! It's out of this world good. A MUST STOP IN Florence!

We are a cozy activity in the historic center of Florence. We mainly deal with Tuscan products, especially small agricultural productions, which differentiate us from large commercial distribution. In our shop we make cutting boards and panini / schiacciate with quality gastronomic products from Tuscany (Cheese, Ham, Cold cuts) that we have even for direct sale. You can drink also good wine touscanian too. If you also want to have something nice and traditional you should come at Bufalo Trippone
Guys it is a must to visit this small but very cozy shop, while in Florence! Food is glorious and prices are very reasonable. The owners are very charming. It was a very nice experience to eat our food inside this shop, surrounded by Tuscany's specialties such as wine bottles, olive oil etc.
On our last day, we asked the owners to prepare for us the best of their best that included cuts of different types of cheese and cold cuts accompanied by bread and bruscettas with typical sauces. This was simply amazing and financially worth it!
Cheers From Malta!

Proper bar which don't seem to exist to the naked eye. Reasonable prices seen as its right in the centre. It's a small place full of locals but made to feel welcome. One problem it shuts at 8pm not sure if this is because it's winter. Loved it!

SANDWICHES and SUPER TUSCAN CRUSHED! High quality products and sauces REALLY CRAFT. Pairings created special "no accident" and other classics. All seasoned KINDNESS, Low Price and CLEANING
For incredible fresh Tuscan meat, fresh Tuscan cheese, fresh veg and fresh focaccia... this place is a must!
It is quite hidden in the streets of Florence and from the outside you might not spot it but it’s worth the search.
The food is amazing, the owner will help you go through the menu and nothing takes your fancy he will offer suggestions for you.
I had focaccia with Tuscan ham, pecorino, fried white onions, honey, and balsamic.... for €3.00... incredible.
The place is not fancy but for a pit stop whilst exploring Florence it is absolutely ideal.
The locals were all coming to get their lunches before going back to work in their shops... I think that says it all!

Creperia: sweet and savory French crepes Schiacciateria: sandwiches made from typical Tuscan bread and filled according to taste with cold cuts, cheeses, spreads and vegetables Beveria: wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages
We went here on a recommendation from our B&B host. Excellent choice. As others have said before, the gentleman working was exceptionally friendly and the English menu was helpful for us. All that, however, was just icing on the cake for what was a delicious Sandwich. We each had a different Sandwich and both were excellent. I ordered the Sandwich of the day and everything about it was fantastic. The meat (sliced right in front of you), cheese, sauce and bread all fantastic. Not only was the food great, the price (4 a Sandwich with 1.50 glass of wine) was unbeatable.

We came here because it was recommended by someone who used to live in Florence. Sandwiches with artisanal cold cuts and unique sauces from local farms and vendors. Staff took special care to explain menu and make recomendations. My salame picante artigianale with crema of eggplant and pecorino was fantastic. The local wine served from a barrel (in plastic cups) made it even better and we forgot that we were perched on a bench to eat (mostly takeaway, with some bench seating).

we have chosen this restaurant for a special reunion with friends from Bangkok & cannes.
four of us are not big eaters so we asked if we could share 2 entrees before our main courses. the manager (in suits) said that he will ask the chef if our request is possible & never returned to our table.
the waiter who took care of our table was much more pleasant than the manager.
ended up, we were charged with 4 entrees instead of 2 without being told. we only found out about this after we left the restaurant!!
the food is good but it is a real pity when you are not very straight forward to your clients!!
