Foodie Friday in Florence
Deep in the heart of Tuscany, in one of our favourite cities, two restaurants you should consider when you’re visiting this most beautiful of cities.
Il Borro (https://www.ilborro.it/en/) – owned and built by Ferruccio Ferragamo – just 50 yards from the Ferragamo Palacio and flagship store in the centre of the town on the riverside. A modern, beautifully designed Tuscan bistro, great service, interesting, modern twists on traditional dishes and terrific wines from their own superb Il Borro vineyard.
And a well-kept secret. Our favourite fish restaurant in Florence – Osteria La Pescatoria (https://www.lapescatoria.it/), just eight minutes walk from the Piazza di Republica. Small, no frills, just great fish – only four/five choices. I had anchovies, then octopus, Trudy had Amberjack. Family run, laid-back Vagabond luxury.
