Italy Travel: Celestino - Florence Lunch not on Rick Steve's List
Become Part of the Family of Oltrano
After shopping at Casini Leather, dine at Celestino.
Ask for the owner, Bruno Celestino, and tell him you are a Web Vision Italy viewer and a friend of Giorgio at Casini Leather.
Subito, you are a member of the Oltrano family.
This is where the local merchants lunch...need we say more.
Proceed over the Arno at the Ponte Vecchio toward the Pitti Palace. Celestino is about a half a block from the bridge on your left. The Vasari Corridor passes over the restaurant. Casini Leather is across from the Pitti Palace, about 2 blocks and a half after the bridge, on the right.
