A tiny place but so warm.Friedly people, marvelous unique sandwiches, fine wines, good prices.There are no chairs and tables but the idea of eating a sadwich and drinking a glass of wine standing is perfect.Trust me!!!

Tiny place where you order your sandwich (20 types or customize) and wine and eat/drink on the street. I had a ham and mushroom and wine for Euro 5,50 and had a free refill for vino. Just off "main drag", maybe 50 meters.

They're so fast and efficient. We got sandwiches to take on our train to Rome, and it was exactly what we wanted: tasty and inexpensive (4 euros apiece.) It's just a hole in the wall, but worth searching for.

Stumbled upon this perfect little shop because of the line of patrons waiting and the street filled with people devouring their sandwiches on the curb! For €10 we got two sandwiches and two bottles of water, amazing. We ordered the #1 Ham, soft goat cheese...More

Great lunch with the locals. Long line up but went quick. A little hole in the wall worth visiting. The sandwiches were a perfect size and the wine perfect. There's a reason they've been here as long as they have.

In between the Uffizi and the Duomo, this small shop has existed forever. We went almost a decade ago and the sandwich with mushroom still lingers on the taste buds. This time, got a mortadella and eggplant. Loved that the eggplant was marinated. It really...More

We stopped by this sandwich shop by recommendation of our friends. It was pretty good, staff was friendly, and it took about 2 minutes to get our food. I would go back to try another sandwich for sure.

We got very delicious sandwiches at this shop. The bread was tasty and the cold cuts that you could order for your sandwich were high quality. The only drawback was that there is no place to sit. You either have to sit on the curb...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

They don't. It's panini, old-fashioned style.

DUE FRATELLINI was born in 1875 in the historical center of Florence. Since then, it has maintained the old tradition of preparing sandwiches , with top-quality Tuscan products combined with an excellent glass of wine. it's the proverbial hole-in-the-wall, a doorway about six feet deep with rows of wine bottles against the back wall behind the counter. The name means “little brothers” and behind the counter you will always find two guys . This hole-in-the-wall has been in business since 1875 , and since then continues this incredible family tradition". The ingredients of our sandwiches and our wines come from "small " Tuscan producers who share our passion and love for quality. Our winery has a history and traditions that have been passed on since 1875, we try to carry it on selecting the best products, such as Tuscan Ham, the "Finocchiona", Wild Boar Salami , Cured pork back fat , Pecorino "Cheese" or the one with truffle , GreenSauce, tuscan Roast pig and of course Tuscan bread.
