First of all, let us explain that the typical Tuscan cuisine is very simple and traditional, nothing too sophisticated. The most popular dishes you have to order and taste while here are the T-bone Florentine steak, liver paté croutons, selection of ham, salami and cheeses, pappa al pomodoro (breaded soup with tomatoes), ribollita (breaded soup with mixed vegetables – winter dish), panzanella (cold breaded soup with tomatoes, cucumbers and onions – summer dish), pici, stuffed schiacciata with deli meats. If you’re not too fussy try also trippa and a sandwich with lampredotto (tripe).
