Florence – Crudi and Bollicine
Borgo San Frediano 15r
from Monday to Sunday 11:30 – 00:00
We are located in the district signed by the Lonely Planet 2019 guide as the coolest in the world; and we do our part too. Our restaurant has a unique style of its kind, vintage, retro, a little baroque tending to the Gatsby, with a young and informal service. Remember the wunderkammer of the late nineteenth century, the cabinets of wonders full of curiosities and oddities. Paintings of Popes, velvet sofas, a collection of correspondences of nobles and even royals, ancient bills of the neighborhood, sofas, tin boxes, comics, a puppet theater and much more. You have to visit carefully the bathroom, a real gem with its cast iron chain flush, antique tiles and brass taps and then antique tiles, statuettes, parrot prints an ancient icebox the spectacular nineteenth-century mirror with silver leaf and so on and so forth. But what do you eat at Crudi e Bollicine in San Frediano? Not only sumptuous cutting boards of cold cuts and cheeses, not only fragrant flatbreads, not only excellent wines by the glass, but the city restaurant with the widest range of Tartare! There are about 30 combinations, 5 types of different meat cut by the knife as Chianina, Black Angus, Buffalo, Scottona, Wagyu Kobe to combine with delicious but also classic condiments, from French Foie Gras de Canard, to Pantelleria capers, from pineapple and Rum combinations. dark until the Spanish Pata Negra ham aged 36 months.
The world of carpaccio is also very wide with about 30 combinations and 9 types of meat of your choice. The beverage sector deserves a separate chapter. We have a well-stocked cellar with more than 150 labels ranging from the very Tuscan wines of our brand to the rest of Italy in order to satisfy all tastes and budgets. Being a local of the “Crudi e Bollicine” line we have paid a lot of attention to the sparkling wine list with 25 labels, many of which can be tasted in the flute. The cocktails that occupy the first page of our menu deserve a separate chapter with 12 reinterpretations or better “personal interpretations” of famous cocktails and we made using our wines too. Finally, we remind you that here as well as in all our places it is possible to do shopping and take away wines, preserves and all products tasted like an old but modern food “shop”.
