Italy, the land of pizza, pasta and gelato, is a culinary paradise. Every region has its own distinct flavors, and among the best is Tuscany. Here are a few delicious spots to savor la dolce vita in Florence, the heart of Tuscany.
This fantastic pizza and panino joint has a small, simple dining room and adjoining counter centered around a wood burning oven. Located right in the heart of central Florence steps from the Duomo, friendly staff serve up freshly baked meals at reasonable prices to hungry crowds of locals. Honestly, I’ve never had a panino as perfect as the ones at Le Bertucce. Their panini feature mouth-watering combos with cured meats and tuscan staples. The best part is the bread—baked fresh on the spot once you place your order. It’s an unforgettable sensation to bite into a steaming panino with bread pulled straight from the oven!

This delicious concoction was dreamed up by resident chef Tyson Wintibaugh. It’s a fancy way to spruce up a simple dessert. All you need is ice cream, chocolate syrup, and a cookie. If you’ve got one, a flower on top definitely adds a little something to the mix. Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Swirl
Dreyer’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice cream
“Organic Midnight Moo” from Trader Joe’s, or the equivalent chocolate syrup
Dark Chocolate Almond Lacey cookies, (or your own home-baked favorite)
Scoop your ice cream, and swirl the chocolate syrup around creating a spiral pattern. Dig a cookie into the base of the ice cream and top with a fresh flower.
