Le Botteghe di Donatello
A simple lunch, street side across from the Duomo. A very pleasant way to enjoy a leisurely lunch in this beautiful city. The good was not exceptional but it was okay - well worth it for just sitting in this location alone.
The important 'Ruffino' on the label, most favoured by the people of Florence themselves. More good drinking Vino Nobile di Montepulciano to enjoy - perfect with this easy food.
It was hot and the ripe tomatoes on the bruchetta were an ideal easy starter. Simple, easy and good ingredients.
A rather larger pizza but good and simple - I savoured this with the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. On holiday these are lunches to linger over in the Florence sun - a world away from our workaday lives.
A very basic salad, but the ingredients were good enough to just about make it worthwhile. A good lunch in the summer heat.
