So far the best food we had in florence. Simple and tasty. 1 platter for 2 is 10 euro, 2wines 8 euro.
Some other top places are highly overrated.

My wife and I loved the lunch we had at La Prosciutteria. It took us a few minutes to figure out what was going on in the 'bar' for a better word, but I thought the atmosphere was great and just enjoyed watching the staff preparing the sandwiches.

And the sandwiches themselves were delightful. Any meat and cheese in a roll and I am sure this place will make it lovely!

Nice glass of wine as well

Very pleasant place to eat. Extremely good foccacias and wine. Eating and drinking in the streets of Florence is a must to do!

Do not expect a restaurant, with waiting staff...instead expect a small, casual deli styled place...hams hanging from the roof, bottles of wines surrounding you....music playing, a busy atmosphere and just excellent platters of hams / salamis and cheeses from the local region. Add to that excellent wines at good prices....and you have a great place to fall into and recover in, after the hours of "tourist" activities.

As soon as you walk in, the menu reads "if you're looking for a tourist trap, this is not the place for you." A second notice reads "we do not have a restaurant license, so we cannot wait on you -- order from the bar." These two disclaimers sum up this little hole in the wall perfectly. Great meats and cheeses, a low key, local vibe, and a delicious house wine.
