There's nothing like feeling at home in a new place. Florence gives you access to plenty of restaurants throughout the city which make you feel as though you can relax and enjoy your time abroad while tasting some truly authentic dishes. The trick is to know which places to avoid as "too touristy" and which ones are the real deal.
Ristorante Paoli is one example of this. With an amazing atmosphere and gorgeous frescoes, it's one of the best places to sit and taste some homemade food while feeling like you're in the past. Located in the city center, it's the perfect hole-in-the-wall to experience true Italian culture and hospitality.
For delicious meats, you can't get past Perseus. It has some of the best cured beef and pork in the city, making it a hot spot for those who love sandwiches. Sit and enjoy, but remember to arrive early since it tends to be one of the most popular lunch spots.
