When in Rome, do as the Romans do.  When in Florence, do as the Tuscans do.  When in Atlanta, do as the Cobb Parkwayions do.  Just inside the perimeter (for all you ITP elitists) is where you may consider traveling to, if you desire the taste of  ’fresh, simple and flavorful’ Tuscan dishes.  Discreetly snuggled into a standard plaza facade (Atlanta shopping plaza, not Italian piazza) and currently playing ‘backwoods’ to a Christmas Tree sales lot is Taverna Fiorentina.  Co-owned by executive chef Paolo Tondo and sommelier Jasmin Reyes Scott, Taverna Fiorentina’s cozy dining room, decorated with a wine cellar wall and authentic accents such as a butcher block table, a classic old world hutch, alongside Italian imported, custom made, fold out tables lends itself to endorse the feeling of Tuscan authentication.  Mild in manner, Paolo Tondo traded in his electro/mechanical engineering degree and restaurant equipment sales job to bring his beloved Italian dishes to Atlanta.  Serving “authentic Florentine dishes that stand alongside contemporary classics” Tondo’s presentation and delivery have gained many positive reviews.  Taverna Fiorentina also offers a private dining room available for events and parties.

Thank you to Paolo, Jasmin, and Deborah for allowing me to photograph.
