Ricchi is a trattoria that began in 1929 as a food shop (which
is still in business), and has been serving typical Tuscan cuisine
to four generations of Florentines. We are located a few kilometres
from Florence, in Cercina, a small town with a rich cultural past,
in the midst of olive trees and part of the Monte Morello park area.
The qualities that have made us famous in Florence are our family
traditions, enriched by the recipies handed down from father to son
for a cuisine that is simple and authentic. Some of our specialties
|fried dumplings with stracchino
cheese, grilled bread with a tri-colour topping, and polenta crostini
with chicken-liver paste. The first courses use fresh home-made pasta:
potato tortelli, pappaderlle with hare sauce, spinach and ricotta
ravioli, ribollita, farro soup. Our famous “spider web”
fried dishes, made with chicken, rabbit and vegetables are known worldwide.
We have a wood-burning oven for roasts such as milk-fed pork, and
guinea-hen with grapes. And, of course, a charcoal-grill for the beautiful
and tasty bistecche alla Fiorentina.
