“The best sandwiches in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

To add to every other positive review on here, these are indeed the best sandwiches I have ever eaten, and I thank Trip Advisor for alerting me to it.
Myself and my partner went there during our tour of Italy in August 2012. The first time we went, there was a very long queue, but we persevered and were glad we did! We asked for the person serving us to give us what he thought would be nice, and had two different sandwiches which we shared. One had some sort of soft cheese and salami style meat (not sure what it was exactly) and was one of the best things I have ever eaten! The other sandwich was also gorgeous.
It was so good that we went back earlier the next day before a trip to Pisa, when the queue was much smaller. We ate the sandwiches in the shade of the leaning tower. Bliss!

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Amazing sandwiches! A Florence must! There is almost always a line, the line is there for a good reason! Kind of hectic when it's your turn to order and you don't speak Italian, but we made it work. Great value for your euro too!

“Yes, yes, yes!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Lived up to all the hype. Well worth the wait. Well worth the de tour. Grab the biggest flat bread you can then head south all of one minute and sit on the wall over-looking the river and Ponte Vecchio. Unbelievable you can get the best Florence experience for all of EUROS15. Bellissimo!

“Happy Sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

So simple, and so good. You stand on line, you squeeze into this tiny take-out place, the guy behind the counter smiles at you and you smile back. He then piles on lots of fresh food (say "meat" or "no meat" and let him do the rest), you pay his buddy a little money and then you walk down the street, happily munching away. The whole neighborhood is happy. This could be the answer to world peace. It's that good.
