Whilst wandering the streets in Florence we happened upon Cantinetta dei Verrazzano, tucked quietly down a little street from the bustling shopping nearby.
Initially we just fancied a drink but then decided to grab just a quick small snack. My wife went for the bruschetta pomodoro and I was tempted by a little €4 dish of focaccia, to go with our glass of wine. Our friendly waiter asked if we'd like the focaccia for 2 and pointed to a nearby wooden board of focaccia appetisers, so we said yes. The food - and wine - was delicious and enjoyable.
After paying the bill I realised that the focaccia (for 2) was €16, which was a bit unfair of the waiter - clearly too tempted to trap a couple of tourists into paying for more without telling me them how much more. This was initially a €4 dish we'd ordered but ended up paying 4 times as much. Such a shame as we felt a bit cheated after such tasty food.
So, head here for a quiet and lovely lunch - just be aware of the little tricks designed to make you part with more money than you expected. Light lunch with a glass of wine each, plus water, was €31.
