Vini e Vecchi Sapori
This tiny space packs a flavourful punch for home-style Tuscan food. The rules are strict and clearly stated on the menu outside: no steak, no ice, no pizza and no takeaway. Its first courses – between €8 and €12 – never cease to please, such as the wide, fresh pappardelle with duck ragù, paccheri in saffron and courgette flower cream, or its rib-sticking ribollita (peasant bread and vegetable soup). The main (secondi) offerings are robust, such as Livorno-style tomato-rich cod baccalà (breaded and pan fried), roasted pork and veal loin, or peppery wine beef stew peposo with roast potatoes and seasonal greens – and most are under €15. Advance reservations are essential.
