American Travelers to Florence may find that Tuscan foods are much more simple than they're accustomed to back in the motherland. Traditionally, it was the southern Italian masses who immigrated to the United States, bringing with them heartier southern cuisine that has evolved to the dishes Americans know and love today.
'O Munaciello is a classic Neapolitan restaurant in Florence serving a hearty and wide range of cuisine from this lively region. Located in an old convent dating from the 1600's, the space is decorated with typical and kitschy features found throughout Naples - bright colors, rustic furnishings and unique handicrafts sprinkled throughout.
Two brother chefs - Andrea and Carmine - head up the kitchen overseeing a menu that includes brick-oven pizzas, filling pastas and other specialty dishes such as Saffron Risotto with Squid Ink. The dynamic duo passionately welcome guests with a warm family atmosphere that includes live Neapolitan music every Wednesday night.
