Framed by Via Tornabuoni is Buca Lapi Restaurant. It is comfortable and elegant. Tables are laid out carefully and the service is first rate. Thanks to Luciano Ghinassi, the owner, and his 40 year old passion for cooking, Buca Lapi has become the most famous tuscan trattoria in Italy. Before going there, it is advisable to book a table.
The Buca Lapi is the oldest restaurant in Florence. It was founded in 1880 in the Palazzo Antinori cellars and still shows evidence of more than a century of history, thanks to a very careful restoration. The first room is frescoed and the kitchen is visible.
Meals recall the genuine tastes of the old tuscan cuisine such as toast, hand-made pasta, "ribollita", wild boar with polenta, a pan of tripe, fried food and then, the famous "bistecca alla fiorentina" well-cooked on charcoal-slack and sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil."Chianina" meat served at Buca Lapi is the best in Florence.
