“Great local value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is a great little lunch location across from Santo Spirito Church. We were the only non-locals there. Fresh, superb panini and similar "sandwiches" at local rather than tourist prices. The shop has a nice deck in the Piazza with 5-6 tables where you can sit, eat your lunch and soak in the atmosphere of the local market held in the Piazza. The only negative was the panhandling that occurred while we tried to eat.

“Inexpensive, glorious panini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

I lived in Florence for a little over two months, and this was one of my favorite grab-and-go food stops. The boar's head hanging from the door gave me a feeling I had found something awesome. The tacchino, pomodoro, pesto, and buffula mozzarella on foccacia is my favorite standard (turkey, tomato, homemade pesto with buffalo mozzarella). Get it grilled with a Fanta to drink (the Italian version of Fanta is carbonated orange juice--so much better than our syrupy stuff here in the USA). This is about 7 Euro. Go sit outside on the church steps or in the shade by the fountain. Watch little old ladies meander to do their shopping. See boys play soccer in the square. Repeat as often as possible.

“Build your own panini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Very good custom panini -- you can choose your break and fillings. Very popular with students at the international school nearby. Have your panini on the piazza and people-watch...

“Super Sarnies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

You may have to queue to avail yourself of your personally designed sandwich. The choice of fillings is entirely yours, or you can choose from the suggestions on the blackboard. The prices compare favourably with those you will be expected to pay in the tourist hotspots. This place is a real GEM.
