Being on a trip for six days in the magical city of Florence, me and my girlfriend never missed a day when it came for having a meal..or two..or three. The loveliest lady was there, day by day, waiting for us with her amazing treats, steamy pizzas or the sweetest cakes in town.

Wandered by on our way to the Mercato Centrale. Wished we had found it years ago. Impeccable quality, great selection, polite service.

What a charming bakery this is! The woman behind the counter was very friendly and helpfull explaining the different tasty looking pizza's they have. After having selected some for lunch, we were pleasantly surprised by the low prices. Because it is a bakery, you can not really sit down. But they do have some barstools, which add to the charm.

Florence has so many bakeries one or two per block in the old part of the city .... it takes something special to draw me in. I walked past Vecchio Forno and had to back up and go in. Everything was so perfect. The Foccacia pizza .. the tiny pizza bites on puff pastry .. amazing. Cookies ... unusual and... More
