No one can agree on the name. Trattoria Gozzi Sergio? Da Sergio? Even the sign above the door seems to be uncertain. Whatever the case, I’ve listed it here exactly as it appeared on the hand-written menu presented to me during my visit.
This miniscule Slow Food-recommended place has a bad rep for openly loathing tourists, but I was treated with flawless courtesy when I was here, so go ahead and join the line of table-waiting patrons without worry.
Between the racket from the market stalls just outside the door and the dinning room rush, you won’t feel like you’re getting a typical Tuscan lazy lunch, but you will get a choice of four simple primi and a bunch of unpretentious secondi including rabbit, tripe, roast beef and grilled chicken. The lone dessert option pretty much sums up the no nonsense atmosphere: cantuccini (dry, sweet biscuits) dipped in Vin Santo (sweet dessert wine). Simple, but delicious.
You’ll likely be seated shoulder-to-shoulder or even at the same table with the handful of regulars, lone men that appear to have been among the original patrons when it opened in 1915.
