    Address: Via Pistoiese, 154, Firenze

    This historical trattoria is off the beaten track and in one of the less romantic parts of Florence, close to the city airport. Still, wine and food lovers from all over Tuscany and other parts of the country try to come here as often as possible. The current generation, the two brothers Paolo and Andrea Gori, have kept everything as it once was. They still sell tobacco at the entrance, and prosciuttos hang from the ceiling. The food is rustic, and the wine list is sophisticated. Paolo is the chef, and Andrea is one of Italy's most renowned sommeliers and wine writers and a prominent expert...

    Address: Borgo Pinti, 99, Firenze

    Nestled in the historic centre of the city of Florence, in one of the city's most renowned and well-known hotels - the Four Seasons Hotel - there is a restaurant that presents the most correct and essential definition of luxury: exclusivity.

    If you are curious about wine, you will have a good time at Le Volpi e l'Uva. Riccardo Comparino and his colleague Ciro Beligni and oenologist Emilio Monechi started Le Volpi e L'Uva in 1992. "We lacked a wine bar in Florence where you could try affordable, high-quality wines that reflect a certain terroir - so we decided to open one ourselves," says Riccardo. The three owners have a great talent for finding out the latest, and often the stars of tomorrow, before anyone else. It is not strange that this is the meeting point for wine people not only in Florence but, I would say, in Tuscany....

    Address: Via di Terzollina, 3/R, Firenze

    La Bottega di Parigi is a restaurant and a sunny island outside the gates of Florence, with an elegant, yet homely, atmosphere. The menu includes land and sea dishes, and the cuisine skillfully mixes Tuscan and French traditions. On each table is a bouquet of flowers; the chairs are lined with a handcrafted fabric with a 1960s texture. Landlady is Mihaela Ursu, and she does have a talent for details, from the furnishings to the dishes to the scenographic wine list written entirely by hand and full of literal references. The wine list is extensive and fun, with many Italian and non-Italian ar...

    Address: Piazza de' Pitti, 16, Firenze

    It is easy to think that Pitti Gola e Cantina is a tourist trap located opposite the well-visited Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. But it's the other way around. Here they serve excellent Tuscan dishes made with the most delicious ingredients while the three owners help to choose the wine to go with it. And there is plenty of wine; down in the cellar, there are more than three thousand labels to choose from. Here you can select different tasting menus, discover older vintages of Chianti and Italian sparkling wines, or take a tour of Italy – and again – it is not a tourist trap but genui...

    Address: Via degli Alfani, 39 r, Firenze

    This wine bar opened in 2018 and is the spot in Florence that focuses on natural wines, mostly from Italy. This is the place to go if you are interested in small wine producers that most people have never heard of. The young owners have been in the wine business for a long time and opened the bar out of pure passion. Vineria Sonora is located on the busy Via degli Alfani just behind il Duomo, Florence's impressive cathedral. Inside the bar, the noise of the cars and scooters outside fades away and is replaced by wonderful vintage music played from worn vinyl records. A bonus is the very know...
