Great cantuccini

If you want to taste cantuccini, the typical Tuscan cookies, this is the best place to go. They come in various flavours, yet the ones with chocolate and those with almond stood out for me. There are also other sweet delicacies to taste, such as a kind of soft pistachio flavored cookie (I can't... read more

If you like to eat cantuccio by itself or with unsweetened espresso you may like these. I prefer to dip cantuccio in vin santo and the combo was too sweet for me. I tried three merchants in Florence so far and prefer less sweet ones with crunchy almonds. San Lorenzo's were soft with sugar crystals on the top and soft... More

So they are supposed to be open by 8:30 am CET time, but they are a little independent on two occasions went in the morning and then went back after lunch. Yeah, it was worth the effort, they are specialists and have big buckets of what americans call biscotti and other yummy cookies and a baker was shaping the logs... More

The taste of the biscuits were fresh. The lady offered some for trial. The prices were very reasonable. My rating is average because the taste was not for my liking

We have tried several bakeries in Florence. If you are looking for the best biscotti you will find it here. The are made fresh daily and have a tremendous assortment of flavors. They will let you sample them before you make your selection. It is located near the marketplace.

We went to il cantuccio di san lorenzo last week based on the trip advisor reviews. The cantucci were okay. Nothing special. We've had grocery store cantucci that were comparable.

We were very excited to try the biscotti and other sweets from this shop after reading the reviews. We tried various sweets and were not especially impressed, although everything seemed freshly made. Prices were also reasonable The staff were not very friendly or helpful.
