Franchi is a fine-food landmark. Assistants in white jackets work with a dexterity that only comes with years of practice, slicing hams, cutting cheese, weighing olives and preparing panini . There’s also wine, vegetables conserved in oil and truffles. You can buy ready-made dishes, such as poached salmon, baked aubergine parmigiana or zucchini a la Barese (Bari-style courgette), to take away or eat at stand-up tables. Its fried dishes are renowned.
