Busy, casual, and no-frills Sostanza is the Florentine equivalent of your reliable neighborhood standby. The food is traditional and tasty, and it hits the spot: simple pastas, tender grilled meats, and house Chianti. The space is tiled and tiny, and the delicious plates of artichoke omelets and reasonably priced stek Florentine means Sostanza will make your trattoria recommendation list—even if only for a quick, easy lunch.
