Off the tourist beaten track at San Frediano we found this unpretentious kiosk which serves tripe. Did not tell my son and daughter what there were eating until they finished the panino and licked their fingers. Simone is a very good cook and very friendly towards tourists. Kudo points to his great smile. Very good food at very good prices. If you happen to be around this area, I suggest you give it a try.

Visited this stall twice on our recent visit to Florence, both times for the panini con lampredotto (3 euros) with red wine (1 euro a 'glass'), a great tasting, great value lunch (followed by an ice cream from one of the many options in town). Very friendly service, even with our poor Italian, but we knew what we were coming for and made to feel very welcome by the staff and locals who were clearly regulars here - we would have loved to come here for their full lunch menu (eaten at the few seats and tables in the quiet street) but didn't have the time.

Some people are put off by the idea of tripe (lampredotto is I believe from the third/final stomach of the cow, and is stewed, chopped and served with a green 'salsa verde' and red 'salsa piccante',with salt & pepper, either in a panino or as a plate), but this is one of the great dishes of Florence, alongside trippa alla fiorentina. If you just said that is was top quality, perfectly cooked beef with a herby sauce & a spicy sauce in a bun, surely more pathetic Brits & north Americans etc would happily eat at these Florence institutions. Just give it a go, with an open mind.
