We have eaten here many, many times on our 2017 trip for both lunch and dinner. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. When you go, ask for Francesca. She speaks English pretty well and enjoys helping me with my Italian. LOVE that she made us feel so special.
La Mescita Fiaschetteria
Via Degli Alfani 70R
This place is only open for lunch. It is a fantastic place with only 5 tables but most of the dishes on the menu are 5,00€ and their house red wine is great for 1,50€ a glass. We love that you point to what you want to eat. The Pappa al Pomodoro is out of this world. It is a Tuscan dish of tomato sauce and bread. Simple and so good!

They have the BEST pasta Puttanesca!! Very reasonable and in a great location if you are headed up to Piazza Michelangelo.

We’ve eaten there several times on both trips for lunch and dinner. Look for the yellow canopies outside. Reasonable prices and great food. Centrally located too.
Was nice because each time we sat in the booth under the “Phoenix” bicycle poster. Hence, we live right now in Phoenix, Arizona.
