Good cheap sandwiches

A small place - but the sandwiches are very nice and cheap. Ideal place for a quick and simple lunch. We were so lucky to on a Wednesday, which means sandwiches with porchetta - so good.

A huge thank you to the TripAdvisor City Guide for helping us find this place! We were a little early for our visit to the Galleria dell' Accademia and were hungry, so we searched for places nearby to eat. It led us to here where we found ourselves in a tiny restaurant filled with locals. They serve a variety of... More

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

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
