Fodor's Expert Review La Mescita

$ San Lorenzo Italian

Come early (or late) to grab a seat at this tiny spot frequented by Florentine university students and businesspeople. Enjoy the day's primi (such as a terrific lasagne) and follow it with their polpettone (meat loaf) and tomato sauce. Though seats are cramped and the wine is no great shakes, the service is friendly and the food hits the spot.
