Ditta Artigianale Oltrarno: quality coffee and beyond!

By |1 April, 2016|

The name Ditta Artigianale is certainly well known by all coffee lovers in Florence. The coffe bar and coffee roasting plant, that entrepreneur Francesco Sanapo opened in 2014, proved to be a quality brand in a very short time. Those who look at the culture of coffee from a Slow Movement perspective, see now Ditta Artigianale as a point of reference.

It seems odd that a botanical complex so wide, protected by Unesco, might be able to maintain its exclusive character.

Ristorante Osteria Pepò: Tuscany’s quality and tradition in Florence

Ristorante Osteria Pepò is one of the best kept secrets of the San Lorenzo district. Located on Via Rosina 4/6 in Florence, a few steps from Piazza del Mercato Centrale, Ristorante Osteria Pepò has carved out its own unique space, even though tourist restaurants and menus are a frequent view in the area.

What is its secret, then? An offer that goes against the grain, if compared to the trend of […]
