About Florence Restaurants

It's easy to get caught up in some of the tourist traps when you are looking for a place to eat--Florence boasts many of them, and they can be cleverly disguised. Visitors looking for an authentic meal might find that ducking into side streets and alleyways yield some of the best results. Wherever guests decide to sit and order a steaming plate of pasta, they might want to consider a house wine to accompany--they are often cheap but taste delicious. You won't find better paste in anywhere else in Italy than the Tuscan region, and Florence reigns supreme on the types available. The right restaurant can make the Italian experience all the more enjoyable, and in a culture where cuisine is top priority, visitors to Florence want to choose a place they will remember. Open that bottle of chianti and enjoy some of the best food in the world.
