Thanks to our tour guide, Federico, for recommending this panini-making paradise. The long line at All’Antico Vinaio and our rumbling stomach led us astray one day, but we returned the next a little earlier to make good on our panini passion. Now we know the shop churns out sandwiches well worth the wait.
We spiced up our paninis with sun-dried tomato and artichoke spreads. Other delicious choices included a tomato-based meat sauce, marinated zucchini shavings, smoked eggplant, creamy cheese dressing and truffle paste.
Another nice feature is the self-service wine bar with small glasses you can take to the curb with you as you savor your sandwich. Perfecto!
