Typical dishes

You can have a good meal virtually everywhere in the Tuscan region. Florence in fact has many excellent restaurants, from high class to family-owned, where you can enjoy the typical healthy and tasty Florentine cuisine. There isn’t in fact, a big difference between a "osteria", a "trattoria", or a "ristorante" in terms of price, environment and cuisine.

At lunchtime, you can sit and rest in a snack bar or drop by a rotisserie where you can have a hot meal as opposed to the usual sandwiches sold in all the bars scattered around the city.

As for the wine, by now the old wine-shops are slowly disappearing but if you happen to fall upon one by chance do not hesitate to stop and taste the typical snack food accompanied by a nice glass of wine.

Here a few typical Florentine dishes…
 

"Bruschette":
are oven toasted slices of bread topped with a variety of different sauces;

"Ribollita":
is an oven-cooked bean soup with black cabbage, a variety of vegetables, oil and spices;

"Bistecca alla fiorentina":
 is a typical Florentine second dish. It is cooked on the grill and can be given more aroma with herbs;

"Pecorino":
is a typical Tuscan cheese made with sheep-milk;

"Cantucci":
 are almond biscuits which are perfect to be dipped and eaten with "vin santo" , a sweet, red Tuscan wine.
