Lonely Planet review
Amid all the high-flying dining in Santa Croce, this combination grocery shop, wine bar and trattoria seems to have changed little since it opened in the 1950s. Even prices remain stuck in time. Two courses (perhaps minestrone followed by rotisserie chicken) and a glass of quaffable Chianti cost under €10. And you won’t regret the calories in the homemade tiramisu.
