Authentic, cheap, and the best in taste. Prociutto and sandwiches were heavenly. Crowded, but excellent service. The wine is excellent. Just what we had read in the reviews here.

Tiny and bustling, yet at the same time relaxed and friendly. We found the one in Rome, and imagine our surprise when, hungry and tired after a 3 hour morning tour and looking for a place for a quick but substantial bite, we stumbled upon the one in Florence (the maker of our sandwich said there are 5 in total)....

We were looking for someplace to have a simple lunch. One of the shop keepers nearby recommended this place. We shared a delicious prosciutto and cheese panini. The staff was friendly and the price was excellent. It is very small but we shared a table with another traveler. It was very busy but because there are so few tables, once... More

Small but charming prosciutteria which is a great place to seek respite from the tourist masses and have a lovely, tasty made to order Italian sandwich for lunch. Excellent value for money.

It was our first day in Florence. We decided to find something special with local food. It couldn't be better than La Procutteria (Thanks to TripAdvisor rating!). Different kinds of ham, procutto, cheese with local wine were perfect indeed! If you come to Florence, visit this cosy place! It's easy to find and it is really worth visiting.
