Il Coccolo

Tuscan in Santa Croce

Deep-fried dishes are the speciality of this fast-food eatery, known for its coccoli (deep-fried savoury doughnuts), stuffed with different tempting fillings and served with slices of prosciutto and a creamy cheese called stracchino. Sweet bomboloni come with a self-service choice of creams to lather over your sugary treat.

Pasta, meatballs and tripe too, plus salvia fritta con acciuga (deep-fried sage with anchovies) to die for.
