Resto 8 Osteria dell’Agnolo

Improbably in Florence for a conference dedicated to Marivaux studies I was with my fellow delegates in search of a good, cheap place to eat. Fortunately we had Italians among our number and we managed to squeeze into a table at Osteria dell’Agnolo.

Its location so close to the Duomo rang alarm bells with me but I was pleasantly surprised to find that we were surrounded by locals in the cosy downstairs room. The menu featured local specialities (though no tripe alas) and a few specials on the board. I decided to go full on native and took pasta e fagioli washed down with a robust Chianti. Excellent service and a convivial bunch of new found friends made for a very happy evening.
