Sabatino is a bit like your grandpa who still insists on writing checks—they simply refuse to change how they do things (and of course, this is why we love them). The Buccioni family has been running this San Frediano timewarp since 1956 with terracotta floors, a daily typewritten menu, and rusty Tuscan agriculture tools hanging on the walls. If it feels like everyone in the neighborhood knows them, that’s because they probably do. Bankers and construction workers sit next to each other in the cavernous communal dining space, flinging around greetings and sarcasm, and digging into thick-cut slices of Tuscan salami with perfectly ripe figs. Everything is delicious, but don’t expect any fancy garnishes or presentations—dining here is really like sitting down with the Italian family you wish you had. Get here at noon to secure a spot.
