Wondering what Florentines eat and what’s unique in the Florence’s Italy cousine? This is the food you must try upon arrival in our City no excuses you cannot leave the city without having tried one of these dishes!

1) Bistecca alla Fiorentina

Probably the most notorious one stop meal from Firenze! Bistecca needs to be from a tall cut, raw (al sangue);  it’s a shame to ask it cooked well done, expect to find Restaurants they’ll say no!
