Here are my favorite places in Florence, city of (imho) great food:

Trattoria Le Mossacce on via del Pronconsolo, 55r (where "r" stands for the
red numbers on the bldgs...as opposed to the black numbers.) This place is
GREAT! It's almost like an Italian diner in that you can watch the guys
cooking your meal. If you know Italian, you won't even need a menu; the
guys just come over and tell you what's cooking. There's a jug of wine on
every table. You just tell the guy at the cash register what you had as
you leave.

Trattoria da Benvenuto (via dei Neri, 47r) I had their gnocchi with
tomato/eggplant sauce and was in heaven!

There's also a neat market near the open-air San Lorenzo Market. It's a
gorgeous old wrought-iron building with lots of veggies for sale on the 2nd
floor. And here are 2 restaurants I've never been to, but wanted to:

Trattoria Coco Lezzone (via del Parioncino, 26r, off via Parione) It always
looked wonderful and was highly recommended by locals, as well as by Let's
Go. A friend of mine went there and raved about it. Let's Go says to get
their pasta porcini fresca. (How can you go wrong with porcini mushrooms?)

Stazione da Zima (via Ghibbelina 70r) Let's Go says: "No Sign. Healthy
food for herbivores. First course choices (L4500) include house
specialties like riso integrale (brown rice) and pasta al pesto. Stuffed
tomatoes provide a satisfying secondo (L5500). They've also got a great
crunchy bulletin board with notices of environmental activities. [Which
reminds me, I've never been to Florence and not seen students marching in
the streets about something. cb]
