Fish delights by Ultima Spiaggia at San Lorenzo market

PHOTOS & SPANISH VERSION BELOW

Located in Spazio 3 on the ground floor at San Lorenzo market is Ultima Spiaggia. The fact that the stall looks like the most seedy and modest place in Florence (cardboard plates, paper tablecloths, plastic cups and a tiny bar with shabby stools) drove me to fall in love with it. However, its main attraction is the fried fish prepared with great care: tiny squid, cod and prawns with fries. The abundant dishes by this traditional fishmonger cost between 8-10 euros and are always accompanied by a local white wine for just one euro tasting as a reserve. The men at the counter are indeed peculiar, resembling tanned sailors with tattoos from Querelle de Brest.
Open from 7:30 a. m. to 2:30 p. m. (there are queues from 1:30 p. m.); Sundays closed


Calamari, baccalà y gamberi en Ultima Spaggia, mercado de San Lorenzo

Ubicado en el Spazio 3 de la planta baja del mercado de San Lorenzo, Ultima Spiaggia es probablemente uno de los sitios más cutres y modestos de Florencia (platos de cartón, manteles de papel, vasos de plástico, barra escueta y taburetes destartalados), lo cual me ha enamorado, además del pescado frito que preparan con gran esmero: chopitos, bacalao y/o gambas con patatas fritas. En esta pescadería tradicional, los platos abundantes cuestan entre 8-10 euros, siempre acompañados de vino blanco a granel que sabe a reserva, a pesar de costar tan solo un euro. Y el personal, más que convencionales pescaderos, parecen marineros curtidos y con tatuajes salidos de Querelle de Brest.
Abierto de 7:30 a 14:30 (colas a partir de las 13:30); domingo cerrado
