Operated by 2 young and friendly brothers, it attracts a younger crowd, with queues forming at around 12 noon. They don’t have a huge shop and can only seat about 8 people at a time, so most patrons are found munching at the curbside.

So what DO they sell? Pretty much one thing: focaccias. You choose your 4 fillings for €5. At first I thought geez that sounds incredibly boring…It just sounded like Subway. Well, that was until I was the variety of meat hanging on their ceiling, stored on their cabinet, and a HUGE roll of porchetta resting on a pan.

Tip: Ask the guys at the counter to "surprise me", they usually give you some really awesome combination!

Not sure if we caught him on a bad day but the guy that runs this place seemed have a right grump on when we called in a couple of sandwiches based on previous TA reviews.

I asked him what he would recommend and he mumbled something that I didn't really understand and not sure if I was meant to so a bit disappointed really.

Food was ok but did not bother going back again.

Had browsed tripadvsor.com and found All'antico vinaio to be the best restaurant in florence,so i decided to go there,its a small place (cramped for space) their burgers/sandwiches were just ok nothing great about it-it was too spicy. Didn't taste the wine here.
But the person behind the counter was friendly and made the burger/sandwich very fast.

Don't waste your time strolling the streets trying to find a place for lunch that turn out to only be a tourist trap and that easily rids you of €50 for two people for a mediocre meal......take your time to find this place instead. Spend the money you save on something better on your trip.

This place has the best sandwich that we've ever eaten and for the best price. You chose as many toppings as you like for €5. The ingredients were such high quality and the staff were great. €2 for a glass of great wine too...

We went twice in our short stay in Florence, delighted both times.
