The best pasta that I have ever had and in fact for the 1st time in my life was at La Capannina in Florence. Located near the Mercato Centrale and opened only during lunch hours, you will find inside this spaghetteria is packed with local Italians. Business is brisk and it is not hard to see why.
Healthy pastas and salads do not cost you more than 10 euros per portion (and I must admit is a big one for me!). You get to see the cooks preparing your pasta in front of you when you are seated at the counter and that makes it even more interesting for those who are interested in learning a trick or two to getting the al dente texture for your pasta!
Here are some highlights of what we had over in La Capannina.
So please, if you are in Florence, do go to La Capannina for a cheap, healthy and yummy lunch! You will not be disappointed, I guarantee!
