  Wine Bars & Wine Sellers in Florence, Italy  

*Cantinetta dei Verrazzano
Via de' Tavolini, 20/r.
Phone: 055.268.590
Closed Sunday and public holidays

The oil, wines and spirits all come from the estate and castle of Verrazzano near Greve in Chianti. As well as savouring the wines and grappa and enjoying an excellent coffee, you can also have a bite to eat. The warm schiacciata sandwiches and the unusual little snacks are all most tempting.

*Antica Mescita
Via San Niccolò, 60/r.
Closed Sunday

Typical Florentine food served in a warm and friendly setting. Booking is necessary in the evenings. After supper it stays open as a bar.

Via Sant'Antonino, 47/r.
Phone: 055.239.685.0
Closed Sunday and Wednesday

The street this mescita is in used to be called Cella di Ciardo after the vast cellar (in Latin cella) which Ciardo the wine dealer used to have here. The original porticoed shop has now disappeared. The present proprietors have been selling wine and oil from their farm 'Le Lame' here since 1944. The traditions of good wine and good crack, even if a bit ribald or even coarse at times, though always good humoured, create the thoroughly Florentine atmosphere.

*Fiaschetteria Vecchio Casentino
Via de' Neri, 17/r.
Phone: 055.217.411
Closed Monday

Strictly Tuscan food: ribollita (bread soup), salsiccia and beans, excellent cold sliced meats. You can have a quick snack or enjoy a glass of wine and appetizer at the bar.

Via Gioberti, 66/r.
Phone: 055.660.050

One of the best stocked wine shops in the city where the frieindly owners are always at hand with good advice.

**Enoteca bar Fuori Porta
Via del Monte alle Croci, 10/r.
Closed Saturday and Sunday

An excellent and wide range of Italian and foreign wines and spirits. At lunchtime you can enjoy good home cooking served at table for as little as L. 20,000. In the evening only snacks are available - tasty cold meats, hams, salame and pickles. Next door, the well stocked shop sells wines and liqueurs.

*Casa del Vino
Via dell'Ariento, 16/r.
Closed Sunday

This bar opened in the 19th century and still has the original wood furnishings. The good atmosphere is due to the interesting mix of locals and habitués who, however, all have the same interest in wine and good chat. A wide range of wines, spirits, oil, snacks and sandwiches.

*Vini del Chianti "I Fratellini"
Via de' Cimatori, 38/r.
Closed Sunday

The bar opened in 1875 and has always been run by two brothers: the name means 'younger brothers'. There is no room to sit as the little bar has actually been set up in the doorway to the cellar. Only Tuscan wines are served accompanied, if you wish, by crostini, slices of ham, salami and local specialities.

*Antico Noè
Volta di San Piero, 6/r.
Sometimes closed on Sunday

Wash a tasty antipasto down with a good glass of red Tuscan wine at the bar. They make wonderful sandwiches too, filled with typical Tuscan meats and ingredients such as cold meats and sausage (like the delicious briciolona), tripe, crostini with Tuscan paté, roast pork or veal, vegetables preserved in oil or vinegar.

Internazionale De Rham
Via Campofiore, 110.
Phone: 055.661.665

Slightly off the beaten track but worth a visit anyway. Specialists in wine exportation.
