Unmissable restaurants in Florence

Antico Ristoro di Cambi

Since 1950, the restaurant has been offering typical Tuscan cuisine, passed down from generation to generation. In a cozy environment, also frequented by locals, there is a showcase where sausages, seasonal fruits, vegetables and meats are displayed. In the cellar, there are more than 100 Tuscan wine labels that pair perfectly with the dishes. Furthermore, the classic menu offers varied pasta and meat options such as Florentine steak. In other words, a legitimate trattoria!

Antinori wine cellar

This restaurant in Florence is certainly a well-kept secret! It is located right in the historic center, on the ground floor of Palazzo Antinori, a building with Florentine architecture from the mid-15th century. This sophisticated cantina belongs to the Antinori family, which has been producing wines for over 600 years. The atmosphere is elegant, and the menu focuses on seasonal and local ingredients, mainly from Tuscany. The vegetables, for example, come from the gardens of the Florentine hills, while the olive oils are produced on the estates of Antinori, in Tuscany. I had tagliolini with fish ragu that was divine! Furthermore, the cantina also offers a great selection of wines.
