Special thank you to Derek James Mattuchio, who introduced me (and many others) to this hot spot.
Be aware, it has Italian working hours,meaning in September it's closes and Sunday's, it's also closed in June on Saturdays. Well, you see where this is going. Check out their fancy website to see the opening hours - here. Did you see the website? I love it! So hispter!?
Florence has too many typical foods, but, one of them is lampredotto. You probably shouldn't know what it is before eating it, but I will tell you. It's a typical peasant dish made from the 4th and last stomach of a cow. Sounds yummy, no?
Ok,let's fast forward to dinner. Florence is well known for it's bistecca Fiorentina, a t-bone steak. Personally, I am not a big fan of meat, so I always like to have a restaurant which offers also other amazing dishes. And one of those places is Osteria Vini e Vecchi Sapori (heaven on earth). It is right next to the Piazza della Signoria in via dei Magazzini 3R. A family owned restaurant.
After dinner if you don't know what to order for desert, you can choose this typical Tuscan sweet, Castagnaccio made with chestnut flour.
My favorite piazzas for aperitivos are Santo Spirito and Sant Abbroggio.
Fun Fact: Aperol Spritz orginally comes from Veneto (the region where Venice is).
Hope you enjoyed the little bit of Florentine food I covered, as usual, there are many more great places and dishes.
Next Post: Will be a surprise :)
