sponsored link

All’Antico Vinaio is the name most people in Florence know because of its famous sandwich. It was started by the Mazzanti family in 1991 and since then has become an amazing Tuscan dishes server, they have spread their fame throughout Florence.

It is located just behind the Uffizi Gallery and locals are always queuing up for a long time. So you will easily find this small store.

3 Stores with the Same Name

When you reach All’Antico Vinaio, you will find 3 store with the same name.

2 of them are the same and the place to go for a sandwich, so please line up on the shorter one. But the seats at these are limited and most of the people grab the sandwich and eat it outside.

If you would like to have a table, the last one is recommended. It is more like a restaurant and lets you relax more.

How to Order

At All’Antico Vinaio, you can customize your sandwich. And no matter what you choose, all sandwich are only €5.

They allow you to choose sauce, cheese, meat and veggies and they have a lot of options to choose from.

Truffle, Grilled Zucchini, Sundried Tomato, Gorgonzola, Mozarella, pecorino cheese, Porchetta, Salame, roast pork…it can keep going forever. So let me stop here.

There are some ingredients we don’t even know the name, so the order is a little bit tough for not patron. So the easiest way to order is telling your preference to the guy behind the counter and he will help you make the best sandwich for you. Don’t worry, all staff here speak English.

And if you are lining up just behind the local, simply say “Same as him/her”. Local people know really good choices and won’t be wrong.

They have a board which shows the top 5 sandwiches they have and makes it easy to order. But the only problem is they don’t have an English menu.

Hence here, for people who don’t speak Italian, I introduce those top 5 sandwiches in English.

1)La Favolosa
Sandwich with artichoke spread, pecorino and eggplant.  Recommended for a meat lover.

2)La Summer
Sandwich with prosciutto, mozzarella, basil, and tomato. The simple one but most popular.

3)La Schiacciata Del Boss
Sandwich with prosciutto, truffle spread and thick slices of cheese. How incredible it is to enjoy truffle for only €5.

4)La Dante
Sandwich with capocollo, creamed cheese, arugula, truffle spread. This is also rich one!

Sandwich with Porchetta, arugula, zucchini, balsamic, and spicy sauce

Other than above, they offer you premade sandwiches. If you would like to try them, please approach the stuff and ask.
