【Firenze】Family Run Florentine Restaurant, “Acquacotta”


sponsored link

Firenze is one of my favorite cities and tourists are everywhere in this beautiful historical city. Along the main street, there are array of restaurants and waitress keeping talking to every tourists who pass by.

Skip the all these restaurants. At where tucked away off the main tourist spots, there is a true local restaurant you should go.

Today, what I am recommending is a small trattoria, Acquacotta which is located close to the Synagogue of Florence. You can have traditional Tuscan cuisine in cozy atmosphere.

The Florentine Vibes

Nothing is over decorated there just to get people’s attentions. The family run restaurant is stands in very quiet neighborhood without any big marks, hence you need a little bit exploration to reach there.

The decor is exactly traditional Florentine style. They use red-and-white checked tablecloths and handmade lace curtains create a warm atmosphere.

They don’t have any background music, the sound of chatting, the knife chopping vegges and plates bump into each other. The cozy sounds you hear at home is there and which make you feel very comfortable.

The Traditional Soup, Acquacotta

Acquacotta means “cooked water” in Italian, which is a very typical soup of Tuscan cuisine.

After soaking stale bread and eggs, it is baked. They put various vegetables in it as well and which tastes great. This is the classic menu and you can not talk about Tuscan cuisine without trying it.

Most visitor order the steak. The steak have sweet flavor and melt in your mouth. It is definitely delicious.

The another recommendation is peasant stuffed ravioli. The truffle sauce is amazing. They have various types of ravioli you can choose from hence make sure to check all of them before you order.

Beef ragù with parpadelle is another must. It has a rich taste and you can not help ordering wine for company.

They have rabbit and pigeon on the menu.

The stuffed rabbit has good flavor of herbs and just amazing. The roasted potatoes on side are excellent as well.

The roast pigeon is served with honey and Vin Santo source which is amazing. A pigeon takes a bit long time to be cooked and not that big portion. But pigeon is not easily found in other place than Florence, that way I recommend you to try.

Do not be afraid, it does not have strong smell and it tastes great.
