Francesco Vini

Tuscan in Santa Croce

Built on top of Roman ruins, this wine specialist has two entrances – one with pavement terrace on people-busy Borgo de' Greci and a second, lovelier one on a hidden, quintessentially Florentine square. Winter dining is between bottle-lined walls and red brick, and in summer everything spills outside. But it's the wine list, packed with Tuscan greats, that steals the show.
