Salumeria Verdi - Pino's Sandwiches0
Why locals love it
It may be frequently flooded with study-abroad students, but Pino's has a solid selection of sandwiches to please even the most discerning Florentine palate. Cheerful Pino hails from a small town near Naples and serves up a selection of daily pasta and meat specials. But the sandwiches are his main claim to fame.
Why you should visit it
You'll be spoiled for choice here—tuck into a schiacciata panino with mortadella or spicy salami or chow down on a generous plate of the daily pasta and a side of a la carte vegetables. Also, even though it stays busy, particularly at Florentine lunch "rush hour," you can always find a seat—the space is bigger than it looks from the street!
