We found this little place on our way to the train station. We popped in and it seemed that there were a lot of locals eating here, so we decided to. We just took our food to go, we had a sandwich with cheese and salami, simple, but it was amazing! It was one of my favorite things we ate... More

Old-style sandwhich place serving focaccia bread with varied, traditional fillings. Self-service. One of the first sandwhich places that ever opened in the city, and you can feel and taste the heritage.

My husband and I stopped into this small, local restaurant for a quick, inexpensive lunch. We absolutely loved their pizza and panini sandwiches! There were only a few locals in the place when we stopped in- the service was quick and made right in front of you. We loved how fresh the ingredients tasted and it was an easy stop... More

This place was advised to us by a local. It exists already for years and it's just great. No nonsense, wysiwyg, and great taste. The owner makes focaccia sandwiches with creative combinations at very reasonable prices. Close to the covered market and the dome. Check it out!

My brother recommended we stop in for lunch. It's a bit off the beaten path but in my opinion those are always the best. You're usually going to find the best food, best prices, and any place the locals frequent is a win in my book. This place fantastic! Amazing sandwiches, authentic pizza, and can we talk about killer good... More

Nice Italian ambience. 150 metres away from the entrance to Accademia Gallery that houses Michelangelo's original David. Reasonable prices. Pizzas about 8 euros and main course dishes about 11 euros.

Super delicious, great ingredients, friendly staff, ready in minutes, prices can't be beat. Definitely recommend. If you're near the train station or the market, you must stop by - hidden gem behind the market stands. YUM! We come back every time we visit Florence - can't miss it!

I love it here! I come once a week for the last 8 years and I just love how they always select seasonal ingredients, the taste of the bread they make, the delicious pizzas, all the fillings they make on their own and more than the really good taste of the food I love how I am always welcomed with...
