Le Volpi e l’Uva



The other day we went for a short bike ride and came back hungry and decided to try Le Volpi e l’Uva (the fox and the grapes) just a stone’s throw from our apartment. We’ve heard about it and heard about it, walked by it almost every day, but never went. Boy, we’re sorry we didn’t go sooner. What a treat.

Le Volpi e l’Uva specializes in lesser known wines served with a small menu including a cheese plate, a salumi plate, and crostone (a big piece of toasted bread with toppings). Everything was delicious and after three glasses a wine each and four different items off the menu, we were plenty full. We talked with one of the owners who was very nice and helpful and walked out with some nice wine (they sell bottles as well).

Le Volpi e l’Uva is located in Piazza dei Rossi which is a tiny piazza adjacent to Piazza San Felicita another tiny piazza. The Vasari corridor runs overhead between the two piazze.
