In via Nazionale, accanto al tabernacolo delle Fonticine, dal 1939 c'è l'omonimo ristorante-enoteca. Qui, in un'atmosfera accogliente e semplice, da decenni la filosofia è sempre la stessa: tramandare la cultura gastronomica ed enologica della Toscana portando in sala, ogni giorno, i piatti tipici della Regione. Ogni volta mangiare in questo locale equivale a fare un viaggio indietro nel tempo, alla scoperta dei gusti e dei sapori di una volta. Il menu, dagli antipasti ai dolci, parla solo toscano.

Per cominciare, negli antipasti, accanto a taglieri di salumi e formaggi si trovano anche piatti come il carpaccio di manzo marinato con scaglie di grana e carciofi freschi. Tra i primi, poi, tutti con paste fresche fatte in casa, ci sono le pappardelle al cinghiale cucinato alla maremmana guarnito al cacao, le tagliatelle agli asparagi e prosciutto del Pratomagno o i pici alla senese. Solo alcuni esempi di ricette della tradizione toscana. Tradizione che ritroviamo anche nei secondi. Oltre alla bistecca al pollo o all'agnello, cotti su una grande griglia a carbone che vi accoglie all'entrata insieme alla cucina a vista, tra le carni si trovano anche il tradizionale ossobuco alla fiorentina, il filetto al chianti con vino e uvetta e il cinghiale maremmano con cipolline in agro dolce. Interessanti anche le proposte vegetariane, con insalate creative e carpacci con verdure di stagione, tutte provenienti dall'attiguo mercato di San Lorenzo. Non c'è una carta dei dolci: sarà il personale di sala a raccontarvi le proposte del giorno. Tra i vini molte eccellenze del panorama italiano. Ci sono diverse etichette di Chianti, Bolgheri e molti Supertuscan mentre tra i bianchi l'orizzonte si allarga a comprendere diversi regioni d'Italia: dalla Campania al Trentino Alto Adige. In carta anche bollicine e vini frizzanti. Il locale è una tipica osteria toscana, con interni e arredi in legno custodi tra il pavimento in cotto fiorentino e il soffitto con le travi a vista.
