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. But the food is first rate. Meats are all tasty, so if you are having trouble deciding between them, go for the arrosto misto, a mixed plate of juicy roast meats.
