SUNDAY IN THE CITY at FUORI PORTA

i should probably add this to my list of florentine favorites as it is an old standby that i have been going to for years. when we just want a simple snack and a good glass (or bottle!) of wine without having to take out a loan, this is one of the places we go to. the name fuori porta means “outside the door”, which is literally where this local favorite is, just outside the old city gate called san niccolo’. fuori porta has a daily menu with pasta dishes and main dishes, but they are famous for their crostoni, or oversized crostini. they serve up some great flavors from smoked scamorza cheese and truffles, to artichokes, to the old fashioned ham and cheese. the wine list brags 650 labels and their speciality is red wine. they have outdoor seating in the summer months and they are always open, which is quite the rarity here. usually eating establishments close in the afternoons and at least one day a week.
