The Best Panini in Florence

All’Antico Vinaio is a must-visit when in Florence. Whether you order a large sandwich each as a hearty lunch, or share a sandwich between two as a mid-morning snack, you’re bound to be blown away by the freshness of the ingredients, and the timelessness of their suggested sandwich combinations.
Sandwiches use local transitional Florentine bread called “pane schiacciata” not to be confused with focaccia. Focaccia tends to have a higher rise with a larger, more spongy crumb, while schiacciata is thinner with crispier edges and a pleasantly chewier texture. Unlike Florentine table bread, schiacciata has salt in it.
