“Pino makes the best, from the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

My son Steve discovered Florence's best Panini here 4 years ago when he spent the semester. We tried it then and returned this year: Pino and his wife Annabella still run it, slicing the meats and cheeses for each sandwich in front of you as they are ordered, from the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. If you can't decide what to order, start with "the Best" as other reviewers have recommended. Sign up for a wine tasting at Pino's excellent Pozzo Divino shop around the corner in a thousand year old wine cellar with an amazing selectioons of carefully selected Tuscan wines you won't easily find elsewhere!

“MUST GO - the BEST for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

When I was a student in Florence I went here almost everyday and ordered the most perfect sandwich - turkey, pesto and provolone on focaccia.

Pino is the absolute best, nicest person you'll meet and his paninis cannot be beat - plus they're so inexpensive!!!

I just went back to Florence and went four times. Cannot get enough. DO NOT MISS IT. And don't worry about the lines - its worth it.

“PINOS! AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The best paninis in florence!!! definitely stop in here at least once during your visit, i promise you won't be disappointed! I usually order "the best", and it is truly the ultimate mix of eggplant, spinach, peppers, cheese & roast beef you could ever imagine. They're so cheap and filling, i think for a panini & large water bottle it's 4.50 euro. PERFECT. Plus, Pino himself is a gem, i want to just give him a hug everytime!

“Awesome italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

The sandwiches here are absolutely delicious. The pork best sandwich is a great one with pork, potatoes, cheese, and a spicy tomato sauce. All of the sandwiches are good and you can even make your own. They are a steal at 3.50 per sandwich.

Not only is the food awesome, but Pino himself (the owner) is a great and friendly guy. Absolute must visit.

“Also known as Pino's Sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

What a great find! I happened upon Pino's as it was close to my hotel. I ordered the Veggie Panino, which included pepperoni, melanzine, spinacce and smoked cheese (bell peppers, eggplant, spinach and smoked mozzarella). It was very flavorful, filling and only 3.50 euros! There were at least a dozen sandwich combinations available, or one may create their own. Also, one could choose pasta or other main dishes, and a variety of side dishes.

This is not a fancy, sit-down establishment. It appears to be a family operation (it looked like Dad, Mom and daugther) working busily in its small, simple storefront to serve the constant stream of people coming in.

Service is quick and friendly, the prices are very reasonable for a tourist mecca. I will definitely return on my next visit to Firenze!
