This is it. You will not get a better sandwich in Florence, nor will you meet nicer people cooking with more soul than this amazing family. Small, straightforward, excellent. If I were in Florence for just one hour, I would walk past every other attraction in town, straight to their door. I'm uploading a photo of the menu - authentic,... More

I had heard of this little place before I got to Italy and during a family trip decided to go on and have a snack here after walking around all morning. I'm so glad we did because the sandwiches were amazing! Originally my family planned to share two but once we tasted them we knew we had to have more.... More

A very very small palce, but inexpensive and very tasty!!! If there is a queue outside do not give up, it is worth the wait. I can really recommend the lampredotto panino. But also the other are incredibly good. Price are low compared to usual price in the area. We will surely come again while in Florence.

The first time i visited Il Retrovini I had a wonderful warm sandwich and thought I had found the lunch stop for the rest of my week in Florence. I went back the next day (Wednesday) and got the pork special. It was after the lunch rush and they were probably getting ready to close. They quickly put the sandwich... More

I'm happy to be a member of tripadvisor community to find great places like this one. Very small, very stylish, typical Italian. The best sandwich I've ever had. The price is only 3,50 Euro. It's cheap, it's big, it's very tasty!

Yes it's busy with locals but it's worth the wait. We were fortunate to be here on a Wednesday so were able to try the porchetta special. It was delicious and for 3,50€ it was great value.

We enjoyed eating here so much, we rearranged our schedule just so that we could go back a second time. In addition to the delicious, freshly prepared food, this restaurant has a spirit that makes you smile. Loved by the locals and discovered by the lucky, you will not be disappointed by anything on the menu. The owners are welcoming,... More

This is a gem. It's a tiny little place but very busy with locals coming in, ordering their hot sandwiches the way they like it and either take them away or just stand around the counter. They happily enjoy their sandwiches while chatting with the guys behind the counter preparing the hot sandwiches. The best is the roast beef sandwich... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
