If Nari did wake up, he’d no doubt be hungry - chances are he’d be on the lookout for Bistecca alla Fiorentina. The colossal and mouth-watering Florentine porterhouse can be had at many places throughout the city but few are better than at Trattoria Quattro Leoni (Via de dé Vellutini 1R in the Piazza della Passera).
The homemade pasta stuffed with pear and taleggio cheese was equally divine, though nothing tops the Bistecca. Deceptively simple, it’s charred and seasoned to perfection. Fair warning though – its substantial, just like the city it comes from, so you might want to share it.
