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.

If you’re ever in Florence, you MUST visit this eatery. The food, service, ambiance and value are excellent! We would go back again and again. A special hello to Super Mario and his brother Roberto. They need to open a school and teach all other service workers how to do it! The kitchen is open and spotless. There’s a wood burning stove that the fire steaks on. I could go on forever... make it a destination when you’re in Florence!

We loved our dinner here during our trip to Florence. The food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. We spoke to some local guests who are repeat customers and they said the food is always very good. I recommend highly!

Le Fonticine was the perfect end to our visit to Florence as we tried the Bistecca alla Fiorentina, which was so so good and more than enough for a couple. We also had the Tortelloni with a truffle cream sauce which was out of this world!! All of the servers were very friendly and kind. I did not see many local in the place but it still felt authentic, especially since the food was so good. Highly recommend!

The atmosphere was nice, waiter was very good--there when we needed him, didn't bug us when we didn't. Food and wine were very good.


Saw lots of people having the steak Florentina, which looked very good.
