Procacci Florence

Our first day in Florence we did a custom Context Travel tour, Florence for Foodies. During that tour, one of the stops was Procacci, a historic deli founded in 1885, which specializes in products with truffle.

Walking into Procacci you are instantly enveloped into the deep musky smell that screams “truffles!”

And I don’t know about you, but my mind goes, “Yes, please!”

During our first visit, we tasted the house specialty, Panini tartufati, a small sandwich with a special truffle cream. The recipe is top secret (they even have a sign that says so!).

I would define Procacci’s as a wine bar, one that is loved by tourists and locals alike. In the afternoon it is super crowded with ladies having an afternoon out with their girlfriends, gossiping over a glass of wine or prosecco and little apertivo before heading home.

Procacci’s is a Florentine institution run by the Antinori family, a very old wine family in the region. It is located on a very chic street amongst small boutiques and it feels very luxurious to sit inside and people watch. Despite this feeling of richness and grandeur, there is nothing pretentious about the people that work there, they are friendly and helpful, even when you try to steal their recipes as Mr. Misadventures tried to do (despite the sign…ah the French!). The prices are very, very reasonable as well, which is surprising considering the neighborhood.

A couple of days later we were headed to lunch at Obika Mozzarella Bar (more on that spot soon) but were early, so we stopped in for a pre-lunch sandwich (truffle and salmon) and prosecco…doesn’t everyone do that?

A bonus is that you can purchase truffle products to bring home and extend your trip. Anything with truffle is a powerful reminder of Tuscany and Mr. Misadventures and I bought several items to make our memories last longer.

How about you? Have you had truffles? How have you had them or would you like to have them? Do tell!

I've had many different truffles in life. The best yet has been the one known as “tartufi neri” in Italian, black truffles that are usually found in the regions of Umbria and Piedmont.

Happy you found this place Andi, and I have no doubt that your tour with Context was awesome, they are my favorite in the city! Whenever people come to visit, I always take them there for a glass of prosecco and a truffle bite, two or who are we kidding, even three! ;-). Let me know next time you are in town and perhaps we could meet up, love your blog!

@Georgette, I can imagine visiting there several afternoons a week if I lived there! It is not my last time to Florence so I will definitely keep you in mind for future trips!

I did a big tour of Italy last summer but we never made it to Florence and I'm SO sad about that! When I do make it to Florence, I TOTALLY want to do a Foodie tour. That sounds amazing!!
