My first exposure to authentic Italian cuisine came on a trip to Florence, and of all the places where I ate (a LOT of places), Osteria del Porcellino was hands down the best. I returned three times, and every single dish was crazy wonderful.
The atmosphere is very family oriented, and the owners and waiters visit with you and ask about your home country. This osteria made me a fan of gnocchi with a single serving. Always a pasta devotee, gnocchi just seemed a bit gummy and too starchy for more than two or three bites, but Osteria del Porcellino's gnocchi was a sensory experience. I can't think of it without my mouth watering. Another favorite is the panna cotta with chocolate sauce, and the boar ragu. Basically everything is fantastic.
