Florence was noted by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and we think they must have been taking its impressive foodie scene into account on that one. From American style diners to restaurants serving up Thai street food, we've got a bit of everything here. So for those takeaway days when you're after something a bit different, here's a few places to check out.
If you're looking for authentic Italian cuisine, look no further than Tuscan Bites. From gnocchi smothered in a rich meat sauce, to tagliatelle served in a fresh tomato sauce topped with grated cheese, you'll find all the classic dishes you've come to know and love right here. It's hard to pick a favourite, but we love their melt-in-the-mouth Ravioli, where soft homemade pasta is stuffed with ricotta and spinach, served in a velvety sage and butter sauce.
If you're having a night in with friends and need some sweet snacks to go with a movie, Sugar & Spice have you covered. They specialise in all things sweet, for those days when you need a rich chocolate cupcake with a swirl of dark chocolate frosting on top, these guys have got you covered. We love their cookie-cupcake combinations though, so for something a little different, try their Oreo invention – a soft vanilla sponge topped with crushed Oreo icing and a miniature biscuit.
Where: Sugar & Spice, SS. Annunziata
If you've eaten your fill of Italian dishes and you'd like to try something with a Mediterranean twist, Taverna Greca Dioniso is the place for you. They offer up a varied menu of traditional Greek dishes, like their succulent Suvlaki chicken skewers. These delights are served up with you choice of baked potatoes and fries, but if you're going all-out authentic, pair yours with an iconic Greek salad, with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and the salty addition of olives and feta cheese.

Sushi is kicking off here in Italy, with all sorts of Japanese restaurants popping up all over the place. And it's no different here in Florence, with places like Ristorante Dakou bringing the best to dinner places across the city. We love kicking off our Japanese feast by trying all sorts of different dishes in one with their Mixed Sushi sharers. Will the classic sesame rolls with salmon and avocado be your favourite, or is it the California roll with eel and wasabi?
Where: Ristorante Dakou, Centro Storico
We'd bet you've tried a few burgers in your time, the good, the bad, the ugly – but have you ever had the opportunity to design your own? Well, thanks to the chefs at Macinata Sarti Burger, you've got the chance to build the burger of your dreams. Will you start with a black angus burger, or go for wagyu? When you've picked the star of the show, you can top away to your heart's desire. From classic cheddar and bacon, to eggplant and avocado, it's all there.
