Where old Italian men eat their lunch: Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli (24. April 2016)

Again recommended by a local, we realized immediately why you do not see any tourists coming here. When approaching this very tiny bar which serves food, there were four old men sitting on small wooden chairs right in front of the place drinking a glass of red wine loudly discussing. Now, they were sitting in […]

Flexible chef and good kitchen at 1-starred La Bottega del Buon Caffè (23. April 2016)

Flexible chef and good kitchen at 1-starred La Bottega del Buon Caffè (23. April 2016)

Usually, you can order the menu by table only. We were a party of four and only two of us wanted to have the menu – so despite the “rule”, we inquired if it was possible for one to have a vegetarian menu and for the other one to just have two courses. And despite […]

Champagne Sabering @ The St. Regis Florence (23. April 2016)

Although I was not staying at The St. Regis in Florence, we managed to attend the “Champagne Sabering” which has tradition in the St. Regis’ as my friends were staying there. When you attend the event, you are served with some small dishes – a fruit salad, a crab cocktail, and some other fish dish. […]

Funny icecream flavours: Gelateria Santa Trinita (23. April 2016)

The Gelateria Santa Trinita offers proper Italian ice cream – but they offer also something more: True Italian ice cream with a twist. I went for the non-standard flavors: “ricotta and figs”, “black sesame” and “pure pistachio” (EUR 3.90). The ricotta you can barely taste but the figs are fresh, sweet and aromatic. What is […]

Where the locals go: Trattoria La Casalinga (23. April 2016)

The Casalinga was recommended to us by a local – and it was a good recommendation. Although it was already around 1:30pm when we finally arrived the place was still superbusy but we were lucky to almost immediately get a table. I went for the “fegato alla salvia” (EUR 10.00) and while I have had […]

Food market @ Florence: Mercato Centrale (23. April 2016)

While an Italian food market sounded absolutely interesting and promising, I must admit that I was not entirely satisfied with what I experienced. The place has two levels – on the entry level there are the actual booths where you can buy the dishes. On the second level, you can find some more tourist-like places […]

Great Italian breakfast: Bianco È (23. April 2016)

Great Italian breakfast: Bianco È (23. April 2016)

A simple but great Italian breakfast is what you get at the Bianco È – it is quite tasty in its simplicity with a “double espresso” (EUR 2.50), an orange juice (EUR 2.50) and a “Piadina” (EUR 4.00). However, the piadina is actually quite greasy and definitely not healthy but at least stuffing for the […]

Tasty Italian style breakfast: h club>diana @ Sheraton Diana Majestic (19. April 2016)

It is a couple of years ago since I last had breakfast at the Sheraton Diana Majestic and I remember the place to be a bit different. You get a small selection of everything you need for breakfast (with the exception of bacon, you don’t get bacon) ranging from mozzarella balls, tomatoes, various cheeses, cold […]
