Carb Queen (Part 1)

I am a self-proclaimed Carb Queen. Give me some pasta, some bread, a pretzel, or anything that is even remotely filled with carbohydrates…and I will devour it. Granted, I have to admit that some carbs are better than others and as a Carb Queen I believe I have the royalties to rank them appropriately. I’ve decided that I’m going to post some of my favorites here.

My favorite restaurant in Florence is called Osteria Santo Spirito. It’s a small, local place on the more quiet side of the Arno River. Honestly, everything you could possibly try there is delicious, however, there are a few that stand out.

My favorite dish is called “GNOCCHI GRATINATI AI FORMAGGI MORBIDI AL PROFUMO DI TARTUFO” basically cheesy, truffle oil, baked gnocchi. It is DIVINE.


I’ve recommended this restaurant to everyone I know who’s made a visit to Florence and no one has been disappointed yet!
