S.forno is a newly renovated bakery, located in the San Frediano district. This forno (bakery) has been around for about 100 years; less than one year ago, in 2014, the owners of celebrated Santo Bevitore, a cosy restaurant a few steps away, decided to partner with the “old” baker to create a lively, modern space.
Behind the wooden counter is a tempting offering of breads, focaccias, pizzas, cakes, and tarts. I am in love with the pane multicereale (multi-cereal bread), a dark bun covered in oats and mixed seeds. It has a hearty flavor and a soft, dense texture that is reminiscent of a pan brioche.
