We finally had a good meal in Florence thanks to Mary’s recommendation to eat at Osteria dell’Olio which was very near the Duomo.
Rochelle and I shared this black squid ink pasta with cod fish fillet in a seafood broth and it was by far the best pasta we’ve eaten in Italy. The pasta was very al dente and already flavorful on it’s own.
tagliolini neri al bianco di baccala e ristretto di crostace €14
My dessert was this crispy Italian pastry stuffed with Nutella cream filling that I bought in a pastry shop nearby. Thanks to Cheryl of Dragonfly Desserts for telling me about sfogliatelle otherwise I wouldn’t have tried it since it didn’t look appetizing. It tasted much, much better than it looks.
At this restaurant the coperto was €3 each. I liked that the bill showed how much each person’s share was in case you want to split the bill which we did. I recommend this restaurant to those who are going to Florence.
