Meet Renzo Regoli...

Florence's Best Greengrocer

Veduta di Firenze
For more than forty years, Renzo Regoli (in collaboration with his wife Anna) has been providing Florentines who live in the vicinity of the Palazzo Pitti with the finest, freshest fruits and vegetables. (He also carries a discrete selection of manufactured pastas, wines and mineral waters.)

The curator of these pages---a satisfied customer between 1967 and 1969---can testify to the quality of Renzo's merchandise and the reliability of his service.

Stop by at sdrucciolo de' Pitti, 7r the next time you're in Florence and see what's in season. And tell Renzo the curator sent you.
