So many characterful restaurants of “old Florence” have dropped standards in the age of mass tourism, but not this place. Traditional Tuscan is what they do best, and pasta dishes such as pappardelle with wild boar sauce are always tasty. Follow that with a tagliata (sliced steak) with arugula and Parmigiano or a filet of Cinta Senese pork (a local breed), to savor the city’s carnivorous traditions. Lighter options include sublime “flan”: a potato cake with cured ham, Vin Santo wine, and a stracchino cheese sauce. All-day dining means you (or the kids) can eat when you like.
