Procacci is so famous for its truffle specialities that it has become a veritable Florence institution. A classy and elegant establishment, founded in 1885 and a stone’s throw from Palazzo Strozzi. The unmistakable aroma fills the air and we recommend ordering one of their soft rolls with truffle cream, paired with an excellent glass of wine.
