Subject: Re: Rosticceria in Florence?
Hi Linda and Ron- You've made me hungry just remembering our favorite Rosticceria in Florence! It's on a foodie-heaven street, Via della Spada, in the western part of the center, between Via de Fossi and Via de Tornabuoni. Everything you'd want to make a meal you can find on this block - fresh produce from a friendly frutti-vendolo, a lateria, a bakery (with yummy crackers crispy with olive oil), and at the Fossi end, the great little Rosticceria La Spada. You can smell them down the block, and they don't open in the evening til 7 pm, at which time the chickens are hot off the roaster, along with the potatoes, onions and carrots that have benefited from their drippings - yum! We'll be there for sure again this winter.

Enjoy! Anne in northern Virginia
