We had the cheese and meat for a starter to start which was lovely. We then had the spaghetti with boar sauce and orange and ricotta ravioli which was out of this world. After seeing others eat the cheesecake we had to try it too. We weren't disappointed.The price for the pasta was amazing value at only 7e. We enjoyed it so much we are going back for lunch today! The staff were v.friendly too. Fantastic experience and we went away smiling for the rest of the night.

We walked past Il Vivandiere on our first night and were captivated by its beautiful rustic interior and read the menu on the board outside and decided we had to eat here. We had eaten and so booked for the following night. We were so glad we did as they were turning people away. It is a small tapas style restaurant with lovely staff, great ambience and AMAZING food.
Each dish that came out was an amazing taste sensation, in particular the chicken liver and rabbit pate and the mozzarella and mortadella toasts and the home made pasta with boar ragu, The green Gnudi was also a hit to the taste buds.
And the wine, at about 2 - 3 euros a glass an absolute bargain and again absolutely delicious, poured from large casks set into the wall. The entire meal cost us about 80euros which for the quality, quantity, service and ambience was probably way too low. But they are clearly doing a good business and hope this doesn't change.
We enjoyed our meal so much we booked for our last night in Florence we just had to do it again. Il Vivandiere just has to be on your list for Florence. Oh and did I mention, it was about 4 paces from our front door so perfectly located off Piazza Santa Croce.
if I could award 10 stars I would. Perfect

This amazing little Cantina Vinícola happened to be right outside our apartment door. Wine right from the barrel to your glass $2 Eur. Little bites and appetizers were scrumptious try the dried black olives and the spaghetti with red boar sauce (a Florence specialty). Service is friendly and the place is designed beautifully. One day I'm going to have a party here but for now I'm leaving Florence thinking about that Sangiovese wine. Some of the best I've ever had in my life.
