Just opened in summer of 2015. PescePane is fish street-food. This fun idea comes from 3 Florentines who transformed a vintage Apecar to a street seafood cart exclusively dedicated to cooking fish. The fish obviously comes from the Tuscan coasts and it is prepared directly in front of you. The menu is simple but it will leave you satisfied. Besides serving food on the streets of Florence, the Pescepane team offers the possibility of doing mobile catering at private events. Prices begin at 5 Euros. Like good street food, the cart is not always in the same place. To see where you can find Pescepane today check their website.
