. Locals and tourists alike rave about this place! They use fresh ingredients and have a broad selection of pizzas which they cook to perfection!

Pitti Palace is near the top of most visitor’s Florence bucket list! While many restaurants in the area have extortionately high prices (reserved mainly for tourists!), cheap eats Florence can rescue you again. There are a few options here. You’re not too far from the aforementioned “Da'Vinattieri” panini restaurant. There is also a great pizzeria, however, called “Pizzeria Totò atto II”. They use a lot of fresh garlic (particularly on the bruschetta!) so it might be worth packing some mints! Finally, if you’re looking for something even quicker and even simpler but just as tasty then there’s a sandwich shop called “Il Cernacchino”. They also serve beer and chocolate cake (sometimes together!).
Statue of David
The Accademia Gallery is most famous for having the statue of David
by Michaelangelo. Almost as authentically Italian as the statue itself is “Caffè Rosanò”. It’s just two streets away from the gallery and its prices are some of the best in the area. This a coffee shop but it also serves lots of traditional Italian food from pastries to spaghetti bolognese! Tired of sandwiches? Never! Particularly not with ones as good as “SandwiChic” makes them. The sandwiches are scrumptious and great value, the staff are friendly and they even have their own homemade wine! The cheap eats Florence is serving will keep you coming back (and your bank account safe!).
