we had a great lunch here with a fabulous selection of meats / cheeses on the tasting platter washed down with a bottle of the house white. It was so good we bought some of the fennel salami to take home with us (and we were prepared to cart it round the rest of Europe first). Definitely one of the... More

This tiny place is a lifesaver when craving for some grub. They offer a wide selection of delicious antipasti (meats, cheeses, bread, spreads) and wines. The service is quick and welcoming. There aren't many seats and the music is a bit too loud.

We only wanted a light lunch so we headed to All'Antico Vinaio, Florence, and even though they had 2 outlets, the queues were long as was the wait, so only a few doors away was La Prosciutteria, which served similar food without the hype and wait.

Hefty glasses of really nice wine for €2.5. The platters of cured meats and cheeses looked delicious and are very generous!

This is a small, hole in the wall place, and we could not have been happier with the food/wine! It was hard to get a spot, but one opened up eventually. I had no idea what I was ordering, or when to order, but the meat/cheese/bread spread that they brought out was amazing! This was my first prosciutto experience, as... More

we are not a big fan of cured meat but I still highly recommend you to visit the shop for a sampling platter at a very reasonable price. We asked for the smallest portion at a price of less than 15 euro and the platter includes a few types of cured meat, bread with homemade confiture and cheese. Attached some... More

Wonderful platters, limited seating and the line can get a bit long but well worth it. best prosciutto we had in Florence, possibly the entire stay in Italy. Will definitely be returning next visit.

This was a very quaint little deli style shop. The meats and cheese were very tasty and the servings were quite large. The shop was very cramped and was very hot!
