One must always be skeptical when popularly is defined by scores of queuing Americans, however I’m delighted to say the Americans have got it spot on this time. I’d recommend skipping breakfast if you’re planning on taking one of these on yourself! If you are...struggling on choice (as we did) then go no further than TARTUFO 4 (truffle number 4) . Grazie mille All’Antico Vinaio!More

THE most famous sandwich shop in Florence (actually i think there are at least 3 of them now he has expanded) is a must for genuine florence street food. Queues can get really long around lunchtime but its worth the wait. Anything off the menu...is good but i really liked the dante and can recommendMore

You would expect to have a better sandwich experience for the center of food and wine in Italy. After a 15 minute wait in the lines we ordered 3 sandwiches to try. Not that these were bad sandwiches, on the contrary they were quite interesting,...but there are 10 other places in the city that have better sandwiches. Don’t be a sheep and follow the crowd, go exploring!More

Don't give up when you see massive lines for panini at All'Antico Vinaio - it's worth the wait and the lines move pretty quickly for possibly the best panini in Florence and maybe anywhere. The variety of sandwiches are huge, and the bread is a...soft, freshly baked focaccia square the size of a small rug....it makes a meal. The best sellers on the menu are worth every bite but try the others. The Paradiso, Tricolore, Inferno....all winners. You can get add ons too (dried or fresh tomatoes, basil, extra creams like pistacchio or pesto. Get lots of napkins and don't come on a full stomach....this place is addictive.More

Aw I don’t know how this place has such phenomenal reviews - we thought the sandwiches were not only underwhelming, but rather quite unpleasant to eat. We were enthusiastically recommended this eatery by our friends who had visited ~5-7 years ago, and I was very...excited to try them out on our trip. Although I may have hyped it up in my head, my disappointment is totally separate from any of that because the sandwiches were not great by any objective measure. We went between the lunch and dinner hour, and although there was a bit of a queue, it wasn’t very long at all and moved quickly. I ordered a mortadella based sandwich and my fiancé ordered their spicy sandwich (maybe something with Diablo in the name?). There were tasty elements within each sandwich for sure - the mortadella in mine was fantastic and the spicy veggie spread in his was quite delicious. But here were the problems: the focaccia was rock hard by the time we walked around the corner to start eating - they had made our sandwiches out of fresh focaccia that we saw them bring over hot and cut it in front of us, but it was so difficult to bite through. This focaccia puts focaccia’s name to shame, especially as we’d just come back from the Ligurian coast and eaten fantastic focaccia there (though to be fair, I’ve had delicious focaccia in the states and abroad, and this is the worst I’ve had). To make matters worse, My sandwich in particular was SO DRY - so with hardly anything to help moisten the rock hard bread, it was a disaster combination! Lastly, I felt like the fillings were so sparse, so every bite just tasted like unpleasant bread. Maybe we just had a one off bad experience, because I truly can’t understand how so many people continue to praise this place…. Or maybe people just have to convince themselves that the hype and long wait time they went through was worth it? Idk, but there are lots of other sandwich cafes with much better offerings - I humbly think this restaurant is overhyped (maybe it once deserved the hype that got it here).More

Wow! At least 50 people in each line…that many people cannot be wrong. Excellent sandwiches, great bread, and with 50 people in front of us, great service!

Service: fine Food: good Atmosphere: N/A Location: good Price: okay Wifi: unknown We were honestly shocked about the queue around lunch time (tip: if you do not want to queue, go later in the afternoon). Not only because of the length but about the organization....And don’t you even think about it to skip the line or cheat, they know. Having said that, the sandwiches are good and it is just a fun experience, but just for once. It is a huge sandwich and one is even enough for two (at least in my case). Get your bread and sit in one of the other streets to eat your lunch in peace.More

Local cuisine specialty situated in the centre of Florence. I would definitely recommend it. Do not pass by it, even if there is a queue. Very tasty and simple sandwiches, along with sparkling drink!

Went around lunch time, waited around 20 minutes. There were a few veggie options, but just asked to hold the cheese and cream sauce. Massive portion size but great flavour. Recommend for filling lunch time

Great as you would expect from all the reviews. There are 3 separate serving positions all within a stones throw from each other. Yes at times the queues are big but they are moved through pretty quickly. Look at the menu beforehand to know what...you want. It translates to English which is really handy. I had the Tricolor. Very tasty and very filling. That with a bottle of water came to €12. Highly recommended. The earlier the better as the queue gets really busy at lunch time.More

As far I remember you can order without pork cuts. You can see the menu on the website. In 2019 where we visited the prices were ALL 5,- now they seem to have doubled!!!

I paid cash, don’t know if they take cards. As their mammoth sandwiches are only euro5 a whack you probably won’t need a card !
