Neighbourhood: Duomo
Description: Panini Toscani is a paninoteca (sandwich shop) offering high quality traditional Tuscan products in the shade of Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the "Duomo di Firenze". The venue, with fourteenth-century vaulted ceilings and columns, is located in an ancient horse stable: a genuine corner of medieval Florence. In our paninoteca you can assemble your panino (sandwich, or, literally translated: "little bread"), choosing among several varieties of bread (like, for example, Tuscan bread, Tuscan flatbread, with olives, with walnuts...) and a few typical Tuscan cold cuts and cheeses, not to mention a selection of vegetables, which you can also make your vegetarian sandwich from. We'll help you choose the ingredients for your best-of-class panino by making you taste our cured meats and cheeses and explaining quality and virtues of each and every product. You will be able to pair your panino with a good glass of Tuscan wine, while inside our shop or sitting at the tables outside, in the magnificent sight of the Duomo. It is of the utmost importance, for us, to offer high quality products and freshly baked bread. In very crowded days, like in the weekends, it may happen that we run out of bread before closing time: we apologize for the inconvenience in case of such unfortunate circumstance. You can eat your panino at your ease sitting at our tables. We just kindly ask you to leave your seat for other guests when you are finished. And, if you have tried our authentic Tuscan panini, and you have liked them... please, leave here your review! Dear customers, Panini Toscani is very keen to thank all of you for your daily wonderful comments and thanks to those, we are very proud to keep offering you the best of Tuscany food flavour. Our mainly aim is offering the quality of the street food and drinks, considering that is the best way to show how the food and drinks could be a pleasure for the human being. We are daily committed in keeping the range between quality and price of our products as high as possible, but unfortunately we are in front of a choice: lowering down the quality or raising a bit the price of it... so consequently our decision goes for the second choice because we believe in the quality of our food and drinks. We again thank you all for your understanding. Panini Toscani

This place is something else. Traditional Italian small premises that is absolutely full of passion for flavours and ingredients. You will see a queue as it is a perfectly timed event by the welcoming owner. The owner wants you to not just buy a sandwich from his store, but build your sandwich from tasting the ingredients and listening to his knowledgable explanations of each of the Italian cheeses and meats on offer. Wait in the queue and you will feel like this was one of the highlights of your holiday. We did and we are still talking about it now. They also do delicious Tuscan wine to compliment your panini. It's a must do experience if your are in Florence.

Long line but absolutely worth the wait. Awesome experience where you get to try different cheeses and meats. The owner is so kind and helpful. If you are near the Duomo, get lunch here. It’s a must.

While walking through Florence trying to decide what to eat (trust me, it's hard!) we decided to join the line to this small restaurant waiting right outside the Duomo. We ended up waiting for about 25 mins but the paninis that came out of this place looked amazing. We finally got in and were treated to a "taste test" of the different cheeses and meats that went into the panini (which were all delicious). After choosing our favourites, we were able to choose the bread and vegetable toppings and I have no shame in saying that this was the best sandwich I have ever had in my life. 100% worth the wait!

You will wait a long time for this panini, but believe me, it is worth the wait! You are treated to a tasting session of meats and cheese before selecting your panini! It is very cheap (around €6 per panini) and well worth the wait!
