Discovering this place was the icing on the cake for us, it made all our lunches absolutely amazing. Il ritrovino is a tiny mainly take away restaurant in the heart of Florence. The owner is the most charming character that gives you the most amazing food! Everything is made fresh and it is mainly traditional home cooking food and it... More

I discovered Il Ritrovino de' Servi two years ago by chance and stopped by for a quick lunch: it turned out to be one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! Last weekend I dropped by again, and I found exactly the same old style little place, the kindness of the two guys who work in there and - above... More

We stopped in here while walking about after reading tripadvisor. What a pleasant surprise. It was fantastic. The staff was so friendly and helpful in explaining that this was the typical Florence old fashioned sandwich shop. He guided us on selections and couldn't have been for accomodating. I had the fantastic salame and pecorino and the ladies had the mozzarella... More

I was here with some Italian friends that advice me. Our meal was hot and tasty and represented good value for money. The staff, anyone of they, were so friendly. I loved it and I hope to can come back in the future.

This is it. You will not get a better sandwich in Florence, nor will you meet nicer people cooking with more soul than this amazing family. Small, straightforward, excellent. If I were in Florence for just one hour, I would walk past every other attraction in town, straight to their door. I'm uploading a photo of the menu - authentic,... More

I had heard of this little place before I got to Italy and during a family trip decided to go on and have a snack here after walking around all morning. I'm so glad we did because the sandwiches were amazing! Originally my family planned to share two but once we tasted them we knew we had to have more.... More

A very very small palce, but inexpensive and very tasty!!! If there is a queue outside do not give up, it is worth the wait. I can really recommend the lampredotto panino. But also the other are incredibly good. Price are low compared to usual price in the area. We will surely come again while in Florence.

The first time i visited Il Retrovini I had a wonderful warm sandwich and thought I had found the lunch stop for the rest of my week in Florence. I went back the next day (Wednesday) and got the pork special. It was after the lunch rush and they were probably getting ready to close. They quickly put the sandwich... More

I'm happy to be a member of tripadvisor community to find great places like this one. Very small, very stylish, typical Italian. The best sandwich I've ever had. The price is only 3,50 Euro. It's cheap, it's big, it's very tasty!
