Florence Italy: Map to Authentic Tuscan Food in Florence

Florence Italy - Map to Where to Eat Authentic Tuscan Food in Florence, more coming all time!

Florence is bursting with fabulous Tuscan restaurants, tucked in around every corner.

In honor of the Giro d'Italia making its way to Florence, Motorino Man brings you Italy maps in Google maps to authentic Tuscan ristorante in Florence. These restaurants in Florence are Motorino Man's favorites because they are consistently excellent!

Teatro del Sale
Via Dei Macci 111R, 50122 Firenze

An Italian-style supper club, the marvel of Fabio Picchi, the founder of Cibreo Ristorante Firenze, Cibreo, Trattoria Cibreo, Cibreino , Caffe Cibreo. Spectacular.

Reservations a must. Get there for 7:30 opening, eat as you never have before. About 10, the show begins. Tell Fabio sent you and you may get a real treat!

La Hosteria da Mimmo
57/R, V. S. Gallo
50129 Firenze (FI), Italy

Beyond the Medici Chapel, is buzzing at lunchtime [1pm-3pm]. Farro soup and pork roast are fabulous. Atmosphere just makes you want to eat a terrific meal, drink, and be merry all afternoon.

I Fratellini
Via dei Cimatori, 38-red, 50122 Firenze

Literally a hole-in-the-wall,on Via Cimiterio, 2 blocks from Piazza Signoria towards Piazza della Repubblica. Wondrous panini and wine. On-site over 100 years. Look for the photo of us above Armando's head.

Oltrarno - Stroll across the Arno at the Ponte Vecchio for:

piazza santa felicita, 4/r, 50010 firenze

About 150 feet on the left from bridge, Vasari Corridor goes over it. Ask for & tell the owner Bruno that sent you before you order. Bruno may then plan your lunch/dinner as he did for us: tagliarini with shaved trufles, bistecca alla fiorentina, macedonia di fruta, wine during the meal and vin santo at the conclusion. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes.

Ristorante Mamma Gina
Borgo S. Jacopo, 37/R, 50125 Firenze

After crossing Ponte Vecchio, take a right on Borgo San Iacopo, about 50 feet down on your left in Mamma Gina. Prides itself on giving its clientele an authentic Tuscan experience. Their wine cellar is amazing, as well as priced so that everyone can taste fine wines, not just the well-healed wine enthusiast. They believe eating is an entire experience. Tell them www. sent you and you will be treated as family.
