If you like down-home authentic cooking, then Osteria L'Upupa in San Miniato is for you. The Florentine chef has 40 years experience in the kitchen, cooking up the area's dishes, keeping the recipes that nonna would have made. Wine bottles line the walls and the overall atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Here they keep the real trattoria traditions alive. Try the homemade gnocchi or the tagliatelle pasta, both dusted generously with San Miniato truffles. They offer hearty stews, grilled meats, and long-cooked beans (remember, Tuscans are called "bean eaters" for their love of legumes!). Wine selection by the bottles in view, or a carafe of house wine.

This is a popular restaurant, so reservations are recommended. Located between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Dante.
