This place is the closest you’ll come in downtown Florence to the experience of digging into a hearty, gut-busting meal at a typical Tuscan countryside osteria. It’s a place where everyone jams together under a canopy of hanging hams and makes like they’re dining at a tavern on some saint’s feast day. It sounds hokey, but it’s a chaotic, spirited experience that truly does feel Italian—even if all the diners are tourists. And the meats are all tasty, even if the experience is tourity.
