Arrive by noon to ensure a stool around a shared table at this noisy, busy, brilliant trattoria – a legend that retains its soul (and allure with locals) despite being in every guidebook. Charming Fabio, whose grandfather opened the place in 1953, is front of house while big brother Romeo and nephew Francesco cook with speed in the kitchen.

Monday and Thursday are tripe days, Friday is fish and Saturday sees local Florentines flock here for a brilliantly blue bistecca alla fiorentina (€35 per kilo). No advance reservations, no credit cards.
