Three Panini to Eat in Florence

3 Panini to Eat in Florence

Finding yourself in the Renaissance city of Florence, Italy anytime soon? Needing a quick, but tasty bite to eat? Try a panino, an Italian sandwich noted for its cured meat and aged cheese.

Best of all, it’s cheap!

Florence knows a thing or two when it comes to cured meats. Especially with its Finocchiona: a type of seasoned salami made only in the Tuscany region.


If you’re a cured meat lover then all meats will delight your taste buds. But if you’re like me, a very picking cured meat eater, then I have some fabulous news about the Finocchiona. It’s my favorite Salami in the entire world (well besides the Italian-American spicy salami, known as the pepperoni, but don’t try ordering that in Italy because you’ll end up with bell peppers, ha 😉 ).

Three Panini to Eat in Florence


First on the list happens to be the Panini shop I liked most, and Tripadvisor rates it #4 restaurant in all of Florence.

Panini Toscani

It’s probably the best service you’ll get during your stay in the city.

The people who work here are incredible. They want to make sure you’ll create the panino you’ll utmost enjoy by allowing you to sample their meats and cheeses.

You’ll get to choose your bread, your meat, your cheese and added condiments all for the same price (around 5 euros), plus no up-charges here people!

These kind souls make ordering a panino damn fun.

And then, when you take a bite, flavor explosion!

I don’t blame the Tripadvisor reviewers who’ve made this shop a place to be!

I mean it’s in a great location, delicious, and so chic.

The friendly staff even wears cute bowties.

They have a nice selection, too, and you can wash your panino down with one of their soda pop drinks.

Prices start at 3.50 euros,

now that’s a sandwich steal!

This is a hot spot. A line forms before it even opens (we were part of that line).

And their menu is simple because you only have 5 choices, but the price is still great at 5 euros.

However… I had two problems with this place.

For starters, the service sucked!

They seemed pissed off at us for showing up or something.

And then… I didn’t like my sandwich, which was the La Dante 🙁

Not because it wasn’t good, but because of that picky cured meat thing I talked about earlier.

However, my husband ordered La Summer and liked it.

When it comes down to it, these three Panini Shops are great alternatives for some good cheap eats around Florence.
And with all the money you’ll save, maybe you’ll book a Tuscan Vespa tour 😉

    Yummny! I can’t stand seeing these pictures. I’ve never eaten Panino before and Florence starts becoming attractive to me. You know, I’m a big fan of food. This is really a great suggestion!

    I sadly have never traveled outside of the United States yet. I would love to get to Florence for the food including panini as well as the history and culture.

    All three of those look absolutely delicious. I would love to be able to visit someday. All the stuff there is authentic, unlike what we get here in the states.

      True. Italy loves to stay connected with its roots and culture within its cuisine.

    Yum! The La Dante, is right up my alley! I’ve yet to travel to Italy- one day. I do love a good panini in the meantime.
