anticamescita.jpgAntica Mescita San Niccolò is a traditional osteria in the district of San Niccolò where you can order wine with a plate of cold cuts and cheeses, bruschette and carpacci, and you can also savor other uncommon plates from the best of Florentine tradition. Guendalina always greets you with a smile as if you had entered the dining room of her own home. The osteria is also suitable for vegetarians with the best zuppe e minestre (soups). Taste the cream of chickpeas, spelt or stew with porcini mushrooms, and homemade desserts. Don't forget to go downstairs to visit the crypt from the 1000's. Sit at a charming table on the street which leads to Fort Belvedere.

fuoriporta.jpg Frommers review of Fuori Porta:

You can dine out on the sidewalk in nice weather, or sit on the benches at tiny wooden tables inside to taste the excellent pizzalike crostini here. Start with the pappa al pomodoro or gnocchi with broccoli rabe and sausage. The crostoni are divided by cheese -- mozzarella, sharp pecorino, creamy goat-cheese caprino -- along with a list of the toppings to accompany them. My favorite is caprino con prosciutto arrosto e pomodori secchi (with goat cheese, roasted prosciutto, and sun-dried tomatoes). The wine is a key part of the meal; the list draws from the more interesting vineyards in Tuscany and beyond. This place is a bit out-of-the-way but worth the trip.

rifrullo-florence.jpgIl Rifrullo is a great place to get a coffee, an aperitivo, or a full lunch or dinner. Located in San Niccolò, across the Arno and towards the Porta San Miniato, in one of the quieter, less touristy spots of Florence - yet only a 5 minute walk from the Ponte Alle Grazie.

The bar is open all day, and they have free WiFi. There is also outside seating in the warmer months, a cozy dining room with a fireplace in the winter, and a famous Sunday brunch all year round. This is a great spot to relax, and there are several other good places to eat in the area also.
