I stopped for lunch while visiting museums in Florence-the sandwiches are freshly made to order. The portions are generous. The service is fast. Worth a try even if there are a lot of people, it's worth it

The line was long but very well organized and we had the monstrous sandwiches in our hands in 20 minutes. While they were very tasty, I'm not sure I would recommend the wait for a rather straight forward sandwich that has amazing notoriety. I presume...it is because of the huge portions and people's FOMO, and the idea that, "you've gotta try it". But now that we experienced it, I can check it off and feel like we were satisfied with the meal but not blown away.More

As the title suggests, this place has a ton of reviews and the lines are long but we were not impressed at all with the product at all. We tried 2 sandwiches and they were made in less than a minute - there was way...too much cream, the prosciutto was sub standard and the bread was average at best. The sandwich fell apart quickly and the taste was overpowering due to the excessive cream. And the customer service was not good - a disengaged team that was busy focusing on the music that was playing (it was good), took little to no interest in the customer - just mass producing a sandwich. Just did not work for us at all. And we did have several panini's during our trip. We would not recommend this place! They are not the only place that makes a good sandwich.More

Arguably the most famous chain of restaurants to come out of Italy, All'Antico Vinaio is a sandwich shop featured absolutely monstrous sandwiches. They're delicious, no question, and certainly you get plenty of food for the money. The only thing that is tough about it is...the wait time, which is easily a half hour or more, despite having two shops literally across the street from each other. It's worth it to go once to say you did it, but there's so many other little sandwich shops out there, I'd probably go try those before waiting in line again.More

Sandwich heaven is the best way to describe our experience. I had the ‘Beatrice’ which was incredible. Beef carpaccio, Stracchino soft cheese, cream of truffle and rocket leaves 😍 It was quite a lot to eat, but I had to finish it and it was...well-worth €11! My Fiancée had the D.O.P which had Tuscan prosciutto, Tuscan Pecorino, sun-dried tomatoes and rocket leaves. It was truly delicious too! If you are visiting Florence, you MUST go here. I picked up this recommendation from Matt’s Travel Tips on YouTube. What a recommendation!!! 5* I will be going back there the next time I’m in Florence as I will certainly be going back ❤️More

Delicious sandwich! It is big enough for 2 people. Definitely worth the price, and the hype.. but the wait time is a bummer (we’ve waited for almost 45mins).

They have good sandwiches but not as good as expected. It’s definitely a must try, but there are better places to eat this kind of food in Florence.

If you have the chance go to their location in Rome instead. I know this location is the original but the sandwiches from here are terrible. They're skimpy on the cream cheese spreads and sautéed eggplants so you end up with a very dry sandwich.

The queues are long but once you taste the sandwich it becomes clear. Absolutely amazing sandwiches. We tried 3 and loved them all. Definitely going to queue up again today. In fact everyday we are in Florence we will go back.

This was such a great spot to stop and have some fresh focaccia bread and beautiful sliced meats. You must stop here. There is always a line so, you know what that means!

First of all, it is a myth that any self respecting Florentine would stand in the long lines of tourists, waiting for a sandwich. As good as that sandwich may be, the only difference between it and any one of a hundred local shops is...the hype on Tripadvisor. Worst of all, via Dei Neri, the street where all of this happens, is dark, dirty, crowded and smells like bad plumbing. Watching dozens of people sit on the curbs, eating their sandwich in all of that filth, especially layers of pidgin poop, is truly mind boggling, and testimony to the power of mass crowd following. Lots of great places to eat in Florence, pick one that doesn't make you act like a clown to get two pieces of bread and some cold cuts. The owners, and all of the locals walking by, are laughing at you.More

Delicious and fresh. You can taste how fresh the meat is. Huge sandwich for a great price. Was able to save half for dinner! Plan on stopping by again before our trip is over!

Don’t be intimidated by the line. There’s a line for a reason. Sandwiches were excellent. On our last night we were full of pasta and pizza and decided to grab sandwiches and eat by the Pantheon.

What an incredible sandwich we had when we visited Florence just a couple of weeks ago. Don’t be discouraged with the long lines, we only waited like 30 minutes to get our sandwich. If you do go to Florence this is a must stop place...to have lunch. We will be going back and when we do we will come back here for lunch again.More
