This little place is amazing! It is always busy and there are queues outside the door. Well worth the queue. Lovely staff, amazing sandwich and even some local wine while you wait. Worth a visit

A hidden gem!! If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! So authentic. This little sandwich spot was one of our most favorite meals of our entire trip in Italy! I wish I could recreate the wonderful sandwich I had but alas....More

We were looking to just grab a sandwich and we found it. We had a panini with salami, pecorino cheese and funghi. Funghi is a mushroom truffles paste. We just wanted to share a sandwich as we like our deserts during the day. We also...More

Very unassuming hole-in-the-wall that we only found out about through trip advisor. However- despite this being a small panini place, the sandwich was one of the most delicious things we ate in two weeks in Tuscany!! The Lardo/pecorino/pomodoro secchi was just totally perfect. Popped round...More

A friendly girl greeted us with a smile and helped us choose what to eat. The sandwiches (6 Euro) were big, prepared with fresh ingredients and absolutely delicious (so was the beer)!

Small location, average-high price for a sandwich (~7€ each), and the food was tasty and good but in my opinion a little too "charged" (e.g. too much cheese and onions)

This is a perfect place just to stop for a quick sandwich! I had a sandwich with finocchiona e pecorino and it was really tasty!

Cute little place for a quick take-away bite. Quite ordinary paninis - maybe a bit too much bread although generous in terms of Pecorino and meat. We won't be back but that is just because there are so many alternatives. Bonus: server spoke English!
