Cantinetta da Verrazzano, Florence

18-20 Via dei Tavolini
Italy 50122
Tel: 39 055 268 590's insider take:

This central bakery just south of the Duomo sells Florentine breads, torte, and biscotti up front and features a bar-caffè in back. With its old-fashioned, wood-framed mirrors, it seems to have been around forever, though it's little more than 15 years old. At the tables: a menu of sandwiches, stuffed focaccia, wild-boar salumi, and cheese, all with the fine wines of Castello di Verrazzano. Drink the Chianti Classico or have a glass of vin santo—with cantucci (almond-studded biscuits) for dunking.

Closes at 9 pm (4 pm in July and August). Closed Sundays.
