Alla Vecchia Bettola

3-7 Viale Vasco Pratolini , Piazza Tasso
Florence , Italy http://www.florence.ala.it/bettola/
39-055-224-158

With white tile walls, cured hams strung from the ceiling, and marble-topped wooden tables shared with other diners, Alla Vecchia Bettola is a classic Florentine osteria. The restaurant opened in 1979 as a way to preserve regional traditions that the owners saw slipping away. The simplicity of traditional antipasti from local producers, pasta made in-house, and quality house wine all make 'la Bettola' a local favorite. While it's a bit of a hike from the center of town (15 minutes by foot or a short cab ride), regulars say the authentic food is worth the trip.
