Osteria Il Buongustai

Top choice osteria in Duomo & Piazza della Signoria

Run with breathtaking speed and grace by Laura and Lucia, 'The Gourmand' is unmissable. Lunchtimes heave with locals and savvy students who flock here to fill up on tasty Tuscan home cooking at a snip of other restaurant prices. The place is brilliantly no frills – watch women in hair caps at work in the kitchen, share a table and pay in cash.
