Mario Batali's Guide to Florence

© Ristorante la Giostra
This city is the real deal, from the fake and the legit Michelangelo’s David to the trashy yet beautiful stalls on the Ponte Vecchio to 
the awe-inspiring Gates of Paradise. 


Anything Fabio Picchi does is genius; the priests’ hats (triangular sausages) are truly spectacular.

Trattoria Mario

This no-reservations, cash-only spot is 
my go-to at lunch for home-style Tuscan food.

Ristorante Il Latini

A classic trattoria with delightful food 
and a killer wine list. Sit outside in the back.

Il Santo Bevitore

It’s hip, it’s designy. It’s…just try it. 
I love it!

La Giostra

Old-school, slightly ornate and always delicious.

Mercato Sant’Ambrogio

The tripe and lampredotto (stomach) sandwich is me on a sammie.
