We stopped in between sightseeing and ordered a charcuterie plate for 2 and a small bottle of wine. The meats, cheeses and bread were delicious and plenty of food for us. Great people watching while we ate lunch on two wine barrels in front of the store. Lots of tourists taking pictures of the storefront. Would go back again and... More

I saw what looked like a muffin in the window...once through the "fuzzy" curtain that served as a door (please note, TONS of signs in english saying "no photos", and they mean it) I was hit with the most amazing aromas. Meats, cheeses, bread, truffles, cookies - all in a setting that made me think I had walked back in... More

We stopped in this very typical place for a quick sandwich, it seemed to be a good place for a reasonable tasty lunch. We first were suprised by the owner waiting for people inside, as soon as you step in he asks you in a rude way to stay in the line!!! We should have left at this moment! But... More

Rather than spending time and money in the cafes in the palazzo, much more worthwhile to grab a plate of sliced meats and cheeses or a sandwich. Absolutely outstanding Tuscan salami, pecorino, prosciutto etc. This was the best stop on a 5 day trip in Tuscany!

Best panini in Italy, the ingredients are the ultimate quality and the locals would agree, the panini prospects, cheese and shaved black truffle with a small bottle of red for under 20 euro, presented on a platter and eaten on a stump in the street. One of the most amazing meals of the Italy tour, you won't regret the experience.

As we were walking back to our car we ran across this small eatery, the door is covered with colored ropes so you can't see inside. Once you get inside your senses come alive with the meats and cheeses , breads. We wanted to buy it all but of course we couldnt!. We were able to to buy enough for... More
