It had been a couple of years since seeing Franco & eating at II Porcospino. Things have not changed & still our favorite place to eat & drink in Florence. The fried artichokes were a favorite this trip. Thinking of you Franco as we transition the presidency here in US tomorrow! Your liberal friends from CT!!

Just wandered in after visiting the Mercato Centrale. Our server was welcoming and informative. Good retreat to spend a leisurely lunch after a morning of walking. All five of us were pleased with our menu choices.
