Description: Panini Toscani is a paninoteca (sandwich shop) offering high quality traditional Tuscan products in the shade of Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the "Duomo di Firenze". The venue, with fourteenth-century vaulted ceilings and columns, is located in an ancient horse stable: a genuine corner of medieval Florence. In our paninoteca you can assemble your panino (sandwich, or, literally translated: "little bread"), choosing among several varieties of bread (like, for example, Tuscan bread, Tuscan flatbread, with olives, with walnuts...) and a few typical Tuscan cold cuts and cheeses, not to mention a selection of vegetables, which you can also make your vegetarian sandwich from. We'll help you choose the ingredients for your best-of-class panino by making you taste our cured meats and cheeses and explaining quality and virtues of each and every product. You will be able to pair your panino with a good glass of Tuscan wine, while inside our shop or sitting at the tables outside, in the magnificent sight of the Duomo. It is of the utmost importance, for us, to offer high quality products and freshly baked bread. In very crowded days, like in the weekends, it may happen that we run out of bread before closing time: we apologize for the inconvenience in case of such unfortunate circumstance. You can eat your panino at your ease sitting at our tables. We just kindly ask you to leave your seat for other guests when you are finished. And, if you have tried our authentic Tuscan panini, and you have liked them... please, leave here your review! Dear customers, Panini Toscani is very keen to thank all of you for your daily wonderful comments and thanks to those, we are very proud to keep offering you the best of Tuscany food flavour. Our mainly aim is offering the quality of the street food and drinks, considering that is the best way to show how the food and drinks could be a pleasure for the human being. We are daily committed in keeping the range between quality and price of our products as high as possible, but unfortunately we are in front of a choice: lowering down the quality or raising a bit the price of it... so consequently our decision goes for the second choice because we believe in the quality of our food and drinks. We again thank you all for your understanding. Panini Toscani

All of the 5 star reviews are spot on. All ingredients are from Tuscany. When you walk in, the very friendly staff will explain how the process works. You will taste a selection of cheeses and meats. You will then choose your type of bread and which of the cheeses and meats to put on your panino. After that you’ll choose which vegetables to top of your panino before it goes in the toaster. The panini here are very, very tasty. If there is a line out of the door, there will be a wait before you get in. It’s definitely worth it, if you have the time. Prices are very reasonable for the location and quality of food.

Awesome experience, cheese tasting and the panini on the 5 grain bread is awesome. Focaccia break is ok, ciabatta is great.

We read that this was the best panini in Florence and we agree. Don't be afraid of the line out the door because it moves fast. We sampled a few salamis and cheeses and chose our ingredients. The staff is so friendly and the location is perfect. Grab a bottle of wine, get a panini, find a table, people watch and admire the amazing Duomo right in front of you. Great place!

It was the longest time I have ever waited in a line for a panini, but I would totally do it again!! They let you try their cheese and meat first before you choose, and 5 euro is so reasonable of price.

Before talking about the food, I must say we waited in line for over 40 minutes based on the recommendation of a friend who is studying abroad in Florence. I’m glad we listened.

When you finally get into the small shop, they lead you to the back of the place where the counter begins. There, the panini maker gives you samples of the different meats and cheeses you can choose from. Needless to say, each were extremely fresh and tasty. You then pick your meat, cheese and bread, and then you walk down the counter and pick the toppings. Then they can heat it, which I recommend.

They also have wine and a few tables to sit outside and enjoy the meal.
