We aren't talking about a drive thru McDonalds(even if they exist in Florence), here are the top ten places where your food arrives extremely fast even for Italy. The Diner being named after the typical type of American place that is known for fast food, brings a little bit of America to Florence. Thus with a Florentine twist. Il Vegetariano is self serve type locale. You order and pay first then you head to the deli counter and hand them your receipt. You are given a tray like in the high school cafeteria and they put your dishes on it. You can choose to sit anywhere you want. Then you can grab your own silverware and glasses from the cabinet next to the cashier. It is like being at home. You might sit with strangers as well as everyone sits next to each or where there is room.
The sandwich stops includes I Fratellini, Vinaino di Parte Guelfa and Antico Noe. This is fast food is about the best you can get. Fresh ingredients on a warm piece of bread while you are on the go. If you have to spend during your lunchstop grab a glass of wine to share with your sandwich. It isn't Italy without having a glass of wine with your lunch.
The Diner has your favorites from home when you are craving something familiar. This type of fast food isn't as fast as home but it comes with all the smells and tastes. So it fits in well with our fast food category.
