Women’s Travel Tip: Visit Rose’s for Women-Friendly Eats in Florence

Enjoy this tip about Florence, Italy from our community!

“A great little lunch spot…

It was the young woman at the travel agency that directed me to Rose’s up the street for lunch. “It’s a local favorite — especially for women,” she said.

Named after the owner’s grandmother, this is the perfect little spot to enjoy when you’ve had one too many pieces of pizza on the run. Their menu runs the gamut from a long list of salads and omelets (perfect with a glass of wine) to enchiladas, burgers, and a myriad of stuffed pitas.

Strictly veggie? Rose’s served up a huge plate of grilled vegetables and fresh mozzarella accompanied by a bottomless basket of warm brown bread. Desserts like strudel with honey, fresh fruit salad, and home-made muffins were tasty and not stuffed with extra calories. Try to arrive before 12:30 and you should find a spot. Once the shops close for lunch it will be a bit harder to be seated (Via delle Parione).”
