Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli in Florence, Italy

Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli located at Piazza dell’Olio, 15, 50123 Firenze FI in Italy

September 8, 2018:  We arrived at Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli, which served lunch downstairs in their wine cellar.  What a treat this was!  It was gorgeous down there.

We enjoyed a bowl of Ribolitta, a Tuscan traditional vegetable bread soup; Prosciutto e Melone, local ham and melon; Porchetta Con Patate Al Forno, another traditional dish of a big slice of roast pork with crackling skin served with roast potatoes; and Erbette Miste Al Vapore, steamed greens.

Bread and first courses

The first two dishes arrived very quickly.  The Ribollita (Tuscan vegetable bread soup) was so good and the absolute best comfort food.  This traditional Tuscan dish was literally bread in a soup with lots of vegetables like carrots, chicory, and chickpeas.  We had no trouble finishing this.

The Prosciutto e Melone was pretty good but not a huge highlight.  The melon was super juicy and complemented the salty prosciutto.  Without it, the proscuitto would have been too salty to enjoy.

The Porchetta con Patate Al Forno (big slice of roast pork with crackling skin served with roast potatoes) was top notch.  The meat was tender with bits of essential fat and the crackling skin was perfect.  The roast potatoes were pretty good, but the ones from Sant’Andrea are still the best in our mind so far.

The Erbette Miste Al Vapore (steamed greens) were all mashed together with a slice of lemon.  It was ground up and fine like baby food.  It was a good addition to our meal.
