My wife and I dropped by after reading this was the oldest wine shop in Florence, it was so cool. The patrons and the employees were extremely friendly to us, gave us free wine and talked to us the whole time we were there. There isn't much seating but if you can find a spot and have a few glasses... More

Sit on a bench near the San Lorenzo Market; eat a sandwich for 4 euro and a glass of excellent wine for 3 euros; surround yourself with locals doing the same. And enjoy yourself. This place is great!

We visited Casa Del Vino because the owner and I share the same last name. Although, not related, he treated us like family. We had a wonderful glass of wine and a conversation about our family heritage.

I thought that this place had many tables to spend your day but it only had one and it is very hard to find since it is located in a street which there is a bazaar. There is one gentlemen who is the owner of this place and his English is not that good. I've tried to chat with him... More

The wine was fantastic and the owner whipped me up a plate of cheese and meats not even on the menu for a very reasonable price! I highly recommend this local gem!

Had no trouble being understood with my feeble attempts at Italian. Were recommended some lovely inexpensive wines, and had some little brochette with chicken liver pate. Popped back in the next day.

Definitely a notch above the other hundreds of street food panino bars popping up around Florence. A great selection of local and national wine so if you just need to pick up a great bottle of wine for lunch and dinner it is the perfect place to stop by. Quality is top - my favourite panino that I typically always... More

... And they do speak English even though they won't readily admit it. Nice selection of wines and crostini/snacks. Find a spot on a bench and enjoy a drink with the locals. Located between the leather shops and behind the market stalls. Enjoy!
