Location: On dell Studio, a side street off of the Duomo. This was an accidental discovery but a good one! The goods: Well, they have everything from Baci chocolate to the best biscotti you can buy (in a grocery store, to dairy products, dry goods and meat. You can easily do your groceries here and find everything you're looking for.... More

What a wonderful find when staying close to the Duomo in Florence. Great service and great selection - perfect for the ordinary and the extraordinary. Thankyou Pegna.

Like many other TAs, when I travel I carry a wish list of things that people at home are longing for. My brother-in-law's family lives in Italy so my sister's family has a laundry list of treats and treasures that they crave between visits to Italy. My list on this trip consisted of cheese, Esta The (limone), a big Perugina... More

From one user of TripAdvisor to another, can you help me figure this out? I needed to buy some food items for my stay in Florence so I found this sophisticated-looking place where I basically found everything I was looking for and was surprised by the excelent cuts of meat. When I was paying, I noticed a little card asking... More

Such a lovely place to browse round and maybe pick up some delicacies! I was impressed with the range of deli foods, and as we were self-catering, it was easy to buy basics as well as the treats. It takes you back in time and maintains memoires of a more or less bygone age.

I can not believe how an average store as such gets ratings this high. It's only a big shop with various sections so don't get your hopes very high. It's possible to find different types of food and wine.

This upscale grocery store has all the makings for a delicious Italian meal. There is a butcher who will carve meats to order. He also has a marvellous selection of cheeses including buffalo mozzarella that will leave you wanting more. You can choose from many types of juice and of course, a lovely selection of wine. Want to make pasta... More

We're renting a lovely apartment with a bird's eye view of the Duomo and went in search of breakfast items. What we found at Pegna was breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, personal items, paper towels...even cat food! The beads, cheeses, meats and prepared foods are tantalizingly stacked in immaculate food cases... so much from which to choose ... and the prices... More

This store is such a gem. I've never seen such an amazing selection of quality candies, teas, coffees, jams, oils, etc... It is a foodies paradise. I found so many great food products to try. My only regret is not exploring more of the shop's offerings. A must visit.

Pegna is not the most inexpensive shop but they have a fantastic variety of gourmet items. They carry everything from mosquito coils and laundry detergent to wines, interesting chocolates, cured meats, pastas, etc... I like to go there to pick up Crespi spreads (green olive, black olive, roasted tomato, ...) for crostini at home. It's a great store to browse... More
