Street food is a noble undertaking in Firenze. Here are six of the best
The word is out: the street-food mania has infected everyone. But it has always been around in Firenze. From east to west on the right bank of the Arno river, here’s where you can catch these scrumptious snacks on the go. We’ll start at All’Antico Vinaio (Via de' Neri, 73r). Expect to stand in line, but it’s worth it for their filled flat breads that are known around the world. The gourmet address for sandwiches in Firenze is Ino (Via dei Georgofili, 3-7r). This is a gastronomic boutique where you can taste the finest handmade products in delicious combinations. Nearby, you will find the warm and crusty sandwiches of I Fratellini (Via dei Cimatori 38r), and one of the most popular food truckers in town, L’Antico Trippaio (Piazza dei Cimatori). Tripe that will make your head twirl. For more refined palates, don’t miss the famous truffle rolls of Procacci (Via de' Tornabuoni, 64r) since 1885. Finally, among the numerous choices, try the specialties of Nerbone (on the ground floor of Mercato Centrale) , another trusted tripe vendor of true Florentine natives.
