I've spent almost a quarter of my life in Italy, both as a child and now 20-something. Pino's is my all time favorite sandwich place there. The clientele speaks to the quality of everything in the place: local Florentines drop in en masse to enjoy the prime piatti or his more traditional panini while young exchange students of all nationalities drop in to enjoy his loaded-up, novelty sandwiches that depart from the Italian norm if only for using heftier portions and more varied mixes of the same fresh ingredients inside toasted focaccia (think fresh mozzarella, salami, prosciutto, mortadella, roast peppers and eggplant, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, olives, pesto, and more).
As delicious as everything his, Pino, his lovely wife Antonella, and the rest of his employees are all lovely people who take the time to get to know their customers and are very passionate about the work that they do. Pino is just as committed to giving you a smile as he his to filling your stomach with utter deliciousness.
Oh and his prices are INSANELY reasonable...don't tell him though ;)
GO THERE EVERY DAY YOU ARE IN FLORENCE FOR LUNCH. Explore the rest of the dining scene at dinner.
PS ask about the private wine tastings Pino offers in his nearby Enoteca "Pozzo Divino"
