Le Vespe Cafe, Best brunch in Florence by a mile, plus it doesn’t break the budget. Via Ghibellina 76R (near piazza santa croce)
Il Carduccio is a delicious option for those looking for an organic Italian brunch that you’ll remember, is a much healthier brunch option. Sdrucciolo de’ Pitti, 10/R, 50125 Firenze
The restaurant itself is tiny so don’t be put off by a milling crowd outside they will be the people just wanting a gourmet sandwich (they are also good but not as wonderful as the platter)!! Via dei Neri
Here they do very traditional Florentine dishes including ‘Bistecca alla Fiorentina’, this is amazing but you have to be a real carnivora to have this massive slab of rare stake cooked to perfection. ‘Ribollita’ is another very Florentine meal it is lighter, a sort of breaded soup. These I would recommend here both are made to a very high standard. Via Rosina 2r (behind the San Lorenzo Market Place)
Gusta Pizza – Loving Pizza and being it Italy we had to venture about to get the right place and oh my days. This is a stone oven baked pizza place to eat in or to go which is divine. (This would make a good meal for either lunch or supper) There is also adjacent placed named Gusta Panino both are great places for a bite to eat. Via de’ Michelozzi (Piazza Santa Spirito)
Trattoria Sergio Gozzi (also known as ‘da sergio’) is one of the best local options serving traditional Tuscan fare since 1915 , as reminded to me by my friend Coral of Curious Appetite. Piazza di San Lorenzo, 8R, 50123 Firenze
It is a tiny little place close to Palazza Santa Spirito, and I cannot for the life of me recall its name but it was on Via Toscanella close by the Pitti Palace.
