All'Antico Vinaio, Florence

All'Antico Vinaio, Florence

Boasting locations on both sides of the street – two dedicated to take-out and one offering sit-down service – this place has earned an international reputation. For a mere €5, you can savor an exceptional sandwich crafted with fresh focaccia bread, mouthwatering cheeses, and expertly carved meats like porchetta, salami, and prosciutto, prepared right before your eyes. These sandwiches are colossal, generously loaded with an array of toppings such as truffle cream, eggplant, zucchini, and an abundance of other options (feel free to customize your own creation). If you crave some heat, don't hesitate to try the "Inferno" – a spicy delight. While vegetarian options may not be listed on the menu, the staff will happily accommodate your preferences on the spot.

Simply choose the shorter queue, purchase your sandwich, and find a picturesque spot by the Arno River or in Signoria Square ("Piazza della Signoria") to indulge in one of the city's finest culinary experiences.

Tip:
For those seeking a more sit-down dining experience, the same owners provide limited seating at the back. Although sandwiches are not available in this area, you can relish a delightful assortment of meats, cheeses, and vegetables served on a tray accompanied by bread. Enhance your meal with authentic local pasta or indulge in an amazing "secondo" (second course) for a truly satisfying dining experience.
