Where to eat

Where to eat
Florence is a hub of Tuscan cuisine, and the city is famous for its hearty signature dishes such as ribollita, papa al Pomodoro, bistecca alla fiorentina (T-bone steak) or peposo (beef stew, which, according to the legend, was selected by Brunelleschi to fuel his "project Duomo" team of builders). Street-food culture is alive and well here, gifting the city another signature dish, one which taps into the locals’ love for organ meats: lampredotto. Some more helpful vocabulary: Osterias were traditionally rustic in feeling, having evolved from drinking establishments, but nowadays they do not differ much from Trattorias . A trattoria is a simple, no-frills eatery with homestyle fare and affordable prices. Ristorante implies a finer experience, where the cooking is a bit more elevated and the dining room is more likely to have tablecloths and plush seating. However, there are other typologies of places where you can eat both traditional dishes and sandwich or salads, such as bar, bistrot, bakeries etc. Here is a list of places we recommend (see the map).

Lunch during the conference

Trattorias and Osterias or the like

Italian Fast food: bar, creperie, bistrot and the like
Although bars are famous for the Italian style of drinking coffee while standing up, during lunch time they often turn into a simple version of osterias. We highly recommend to try at least once, as some places offer very interesting and tasty dishes. Here is a list of places near the conference venue where you can have a nice but ‘fast’ lunch.
