coco.pngWhen you arrive at Coco Lezzone; you will be received with a smile. The rooms are small and minimal, with white tablecloths and small flowerpots which decorate the tables where everyone sits together. The lights are bright and there isn't any exotic atmosphere, everything feels like the typical 1800's household. You'll then start your journey back in time through the ancient flavors and tastes. You will rediscover the tastes almost lost through history of the Italian grandmother's kitchen's.

Only traditional dishes are served, true and genuine, in which every detail of the cooking process is very accurate and absolutely original in the recipe and choice of the ingredients. On Thursday the dish of the day is tripe, which you can order for a first course as the zuppa di lampredotto, a special spicy vegetable soup, or if you prefer, the Florentine tripe, in tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. On Friday the tradition commands fish, and they serve traditional cod fish in tomato sauce or squid with vegetables, best with garbanzo beans on the side. If you'd like to eat a fantastic, rare, real florentine steak, it's suggested that you call in to reserve it a day before.
