Caffè degli Artigiani


in Oltrarno

Sitting on one of Florence's most atmospheric little piazzas, this quaintly countrified cafe pulls in local artisans in need of an espresso hit or nip of brandy. In the back room, which seems to have been plucked from a Provençal farmhouse, enjoy piadine (flat bread stuffed with various fillings; €6.50 to €7.50), salads (€8.50 to €9.50), crostini, meat and fish carpaccio and other light bites. Street tables too.
