Street Food in Florence

Street Food in Florence is becoming more common. Typically Florentines prefer a sit down two hour lunch although with economic changes even the locals are reverting to a fast lunch! Here are a few of my favourites:
I Due Fratellini For a only 2.50Euro you can enjoy one of the best panino in town! choose from a selection of typical Tuscan Flavours such as wild boar salami, pecorino cheese with truffle, porchetta and more. House Red from 2 Euro a glass.
Casa del Vino hidden behind the outdoor stands of the San Lorenzo market this place is not to be missed. Choose from a vast wine selection and delicious panini that include Burrata, Tomato, Caper. The perfect place to pick up a bottle of wine to go.
Semel – Don’t miss this tiny eatery situated in front of the St Ambroggio Markets. We visit owner market on our Florence Market Walking Tour Meet owner Marco who looks like Sean Connery! He has a delicious selection of traditional and seasonal toppings that you can eat as crostini or as a panino.
Ino – A fantastic slow food experience. Owner Alesandro Frassica is known as the King of Take Away. Alesandro really knows how to make a flavorsome Panino. His has hand picked every ingredient of his list of choices using national products from small organic farms. Selections include Mortadella from Prato, Fresh Pecorino with Pistacchio, Local Florentine fennel salami, Sicilian Tuna and the list goes on… The perfect lunch with a glass of wine or slow food Lurisia Italian Soda’s. You can also taste Ino’s panini at the exclusive Bar of Hotel Orologio and if you are in Rome you can taste Ino’s Panini at Eataly and if you happen to find yourself at the Dubai Mall you can also find INO!
Procacci A Historical bar on the main designer trail of Via Tornabuoni. Owned by the Antinori Empire like all their venues the bar is perfect! enjoy delicious bite sized truffle panino with a glass of prosecco or enjoy a glass of wine from a divine selection of Antinori red’s and whites from one of their many Estates all over Italy. We visit this Bar on Florence Foodies Walk
There is nothing better than sitting in Piazza Santo Spirito on a Sunday afternoon. You can visit the out door market in the main square and enjoy a panino at ‘Gusta Panino’ now with outdoor seating.
Antico Noe – Volta S.Piero 6/8 r – Firenze – heading toward the St Ambrogio market from the city centre. This is a class local hang out
The beauty of Il Cernacchino is you can have a very large panino or a traditional first course such as Ribollità (Tuscan Bread soup). I love the roast pork with mustard and fresh tomato and the cute mammas that serve you!
