Traditional Florentine cuisine is earthy, unfussy, and satisfying. It relies on fresh, seasonal ingredients and the staples of bread, beans, and olive oil. At authentic trattorie, you can sample classics like ribollita (bread-based vegetable soup), arista al forno (roast pork spiked with garlic and rosemary), and of course the famous bistecca alla Fiorentina (a vast T-bone steak, served rare). Tuscany is one of Italy’s great wine-producing regions, so look for wines from Chianti, Bolgheri (home to the original Super Tuscan), Montalcino, and Montepulciano.
