Traditional Florentine food in a contemporary setting.

Crossing the bridge over the Arno from Santa Croce brings you straight to the old Quartiere, or neighbourhood, of San Niccolo. From here it is a short walk to the view point of Piazzale Michelangelo and on the way Zeb makes the perfect place to stop for lunch or an early dinner. Stylish and contemporary, at the same time as remaining true to its origins as a grocer's shop, Zeb offers excellent quality deli goods and a full menu of delicious Florentine home cooking. Comfortable stools line the length of the scrupulously clean glass counter where many of the dishes are displayed.

Try one of the traditional soups to start, or tortellini in brodo, little pasta parcels cooked in tasty broth. Follow with the house speciality of bollito, gently simmered beef with a little chilli sauce and garlicky salsa verde. Artisan beers are offered alongside a wide selection of wines by the glass, all served to you by the welcoming owners. Zeb is also a great place to choose a tasty picnic from the deli counter to enjoy with the view from Piazzale Michelangelo.
