Chose La Prosciutteria for lunch due to its incredible reviews and also super close proximity to the Uffuzi museum exit. Highly recommend hitting up the Uffuzi first and then enjoying a leisurely and inspired lunch at La Prosciutteria. We were fortunately the very first patrons of the day and had our pick of the tables. The space is very small and filled up quickly. Since they do not have a restaurant license, you order everything at the counter, serve yourself water, and set your own table ;). We picked "the Mario" platter and "the Heidi" panini to share and two glasses of the house wine (delicious chianti). Wow, just wow, wow! When the platter was ready, it was just a feast for the senses. The preparer was able to make it for two people for just an extra 1.5€. There was prosciutto, salami, pears with honey and nuts, hard cheeses, crostini with soft cheese/mushrooms, crostini with spicy tomato pesto, grilled veggies, not to mention a beautiful presentation of accent olives, pickled onions, cantaloupe, oranges and dates. Seriously, check out my picture. It was all soooooo good! We sat there for almost two hours eating every last bite and also loving the Heidi panini - which was amazing soft goat cheese drizzled with honey (divine!). The wine paired so well with everything that we had to get a second glass. Seriously the best lunch we have had in Italy yet. So simple, so good and all for 24€. Loved to the completely funky vibe of the place and the staff was so welcoming and helpful too!

Visited here on the recommendation of tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. Great selection of breads, meats and cheeses with a good selection of cheap wines. The platters looked very inviting too. We came back in the evening when it was quieter and brought a sandwich back to the apartment. Even then we were unable to finish them. The porchetta was excellent. Enjoy the experience and the chaos.

This place doesn't look like much from outside, very small but once inside you'll see the charm! No table service. I asked for a board (small-medium) to be put together for me (€10 enough for 2 people!), it consisted of ham, salami, hard cheese one with oregano one with chilli. Olives, melon, pear drizzled with honey, small slices of bread with different pastes and anchovies on one. Absolutely delicious and so fresh!!! House wine for a small glass was €1.50!!! Dry and easy to drink although not the best in Florence. But plenty of others to choose from.

Eating here is always a great experience!

It's a very small place and most of the times it's very busy so expect some waiting time for a table but it's definitely worth the wait!

The people are so friendly here and the atmosphere is great! You have to set the table yourself and get the water yourself too but that only adds to the nice, cozy atmosphere.
I would recommend you take a platter to share with your friends/loved one/ mum. At lunchtime you can chose between the lunch option and the aperitivo option. The aperitivo plate is a bit smaller but you won't be hungry after it. The lunch platter is served on a beautiful long wooden platter and has so many stuff on it! So much choice between nice meat, cheeses and some fruit/vegetables!
I think its possible to choice every single ingredient on you platter, but i always let them surprise me. (and i'm never disappointed)
Don't skip this place when you visit Florence!!!

(extra tip: I don't know if it's possible but if you would still be hungry after a massive plate at la prosciutteria, All' Antico Vinaio (best panini place in florence. word. try the porchetta! or the mario gomez!) is just at the end of the street....)

My friend and I stumbled across La Prosciutteria while we were walking around Via dei Neri - boy were we lucky! You get a lot for your money (ask for a wine and meat plate - different sizes, either 10 or 15 euros) and the food is beyond delicious. Also highly recommend the house Chianti. While we were in Florence for 10 days we ate here three times! Highly recommended...
