Loved, loved loved this place. We had the salami & cheese board for two with wine & it was fantastic. They made & explained everything that was on the board. So much better then just grabbing a sandwich down the street. Glad I took all other reviewers advice about this place.

We wandered in here for lunch and ended up having the best lunch in Florence. The place is not big and you need to place yourself in the trusting hands of the staff We had a sampler plate for 15 euro that was amazing 3-4 different meats, 3-4 cheeses and several olive types We returned a few days later for...

Came here on the basis of trip advisor and wasn't dissapointed. Ceiling hanging with various cured meats and a deli counter with lots of meat and cheese, happy days. The staff are friendly and happy to help you figure out what's going on as it's not a restaurant (you'll understand when you get there). A "small" board of meat and... More

Really good and tasty Tagliere. The place gets crowded pretty quick, but it worths a visit. Amazing selection of cheese ( must to try pecorino with tartufo) and great variety of meats too. Plenty of locals too, fair relation quality/price. Very friendly staff :)

Small place right behind the Galleria degli uffizzi, very cool staff that suggest you how to prepare your panino or foccacia, good quality fresh ingredients, don't forget to ask for a glass of the house red wine, is really good, the decor of the place is amazing! Even vegetarians would have a delicious meal. Don't miss it!!

They don't have fancy services, you have to order by yourself. It might sound rude, but is really practical! You will probably recognize there when see a lot of people eating in front of it without a table or sitting on the sidewalk because it it crowd. But don't worry, your order will be fast anyway. We had a nice... More

They make a point of telling everyone they are not a restaurant - they don't have a restaurant license, but are a "deli". I don't care. They have good food at a very reasonable price point. You have to be wiling to share one of the few tables at the back, or stand outside. My first visit, I got the... More

You want to be easily seated, you like clean wall/ surrounding or hate messy fast food ? Don't go there ! But that would be a pity because the team is young, nice and the food is good and if you skip the sandwich and take the time for a board with cheese and cold cuts that would be an... More
