Too busy in all the other eateries. Walked in, ordered and wow, what a great surprise. Good food, better prices, and nice staff. They only charged $6E for a giant sandwich, and $2E for a coke.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
