Oltrarno/San Frediano: Trattoria Al Tranvai

Piazza Torquato Tasso

Reviewed by: David from NY, review #1302

When: 2005

A Friday evening menu weighted towards seafood. Excellent and well-priced!

We went on Judy-Diva's and Matriarch-Marian's recommendations and were not disappointed. Since it was Friday, much of their menu was seafood. We ended up having dishes that included 3 different varieties of squid - didn't realize we'd have a squidfest until it happened. From teeny tiny squid in a pasta sauce to standard size delicious grilled squid as a secondo. As is the style in Tuscany, lots of salt. I like that, but others might balk. Excellent fig/walnut tart - again Diva's recommendation. 2 primi, 2 secondi, 2 contorni, water, bottle of Antinori Vermentino ( 16), 1 dolce - 55.
