Al Tranvai – Tuscan food on a tram coach

I will be honest: I was not even aware of the existence of this restaurant before some Hungarian/Slovak friends came to visit me. I wanted to have them try the typical cuisine from Tuscany because I was quite sure they were a perfect match for our local flavours, but I was not sure where to go (staying in the city and not getting robbed in some tourist-trap place). So I asked a friend and he recommended we go Al Tranvai and it ended up being a total success.

The restaurant is very small (20 people can hardly fit in there) and inside it is decorated like an old-fashion tram coach.

The food they serve mainly consists of traditional “poor dishes” (called that way because they’re made with cheap or recycled ingredients like black cabbage, onions tomato, beans, old bread and beef), that my grandmother used to cook. The wine is served from wicker wine bottles and you’re only charged for the wine you actually drink.

Everything we tried was extremely tasty and I am sure that my granny would approve.
