The culinary scene in Florence is influenced by its Tuscan location, which dictates a focus on traditional, local, farm-fresh foods. The cuisine of Tuscany centres around cucina povera (‘food of the poor’) – simple ingredients such as beans, tomatoes, onions and bread are widely used, and Tuscan dishes tend to be hearty, wholesome, and packed with flavour. Some of the best food in Florence is served in smaller restaurants; here, we guide you through some of the best Tuscan dishes to be found in the city, from tagliere to ragu.
