The quality of the entire offering is immediately apparent when tasting the extra virgin olive oil brought to the tables or reading the origin of many of the ingredients on the menu. Among the toppings, the regional products stand out, but the nod to Tuscany is not the only reason for the success of this establishment, which is crowded even at lunch time. Rather, it is the quality of the dough and the cooking of the pizzas, panuozzo and calzones. On a large blackboard, mainly seafood kitchen specials are also listed that are worthwhile. According to the average Florentine dimensions Il Vecchio e il Mare is large and airy, especially in the summer with the use of the inside courtyard. The staff is very busy, but attentive.
