Eat & Drink

It goes without saying that Italian food is crazy delicious. Wine, gelato, pasta, and pizza are a good start but it’s also a varied cuisine, each region with its own specialties. Local Florentine specialities tend to be hearty and meaty. We give a few of our favorite spots for Italian and non-Italian restaurants and bars in town.
