One of the oldest and best wine bars in Florence, this place serves cured meats and cheeses, as well as daily specials such as the sublime spaghetti al curry. Crostini and crostoni—grilled breads topped with a mélange of cheeses and meats—are the house specialty; the verdure sott'olio (vegetables with oil) are divine. If the torta caprese is on the menu, don't miss it: it's a chocolate bomb with almonds, perhaps the best brownie in Florence. The lengthy wine list offers great wines by the glass, and terrific bottles from all over Italy and beyond. All this can be enjoyed at rustic wooden tables, and outdoors when weather allows.
