Buca di Sant'Antonio information
Gosh, what a fabulous collection of copper pots strung from the wood-beamed ceiling! This atmosphere-laden restaurant has wooed romantic diners since 1782 and is still going strong. The Tuscan cuisine does not quite live up to the exceptional wine list, but it remains a favourite nonetheless. Service is formal – think gents of a certain age in black suits and dicky-bows – and opens with a glass of prosecco (sparkling wine) on the house as aperitif.
