Extremely famous Florentine sandwich shop All' Antico Vinaio has announced the upcoming opening of a new location in Los Angeles's Venice Beach. 

All’Antico Vinaio, which translates to "ancient wine merchant," was founded as a wine room in Florence, Italy, in 1989 by the Mazzanti family. Joined by Tommaso Mazzanti in 2006, the store was transformed from a popular sandwich spot to one of Firenze's most famous culinary destinations. All’Antico Vinaio opened its first U.S. outlet in New York City in 2021, and has since launched three more locations in Manhattan. The company has twice hosted pop-ups in Los Angeles but has now secured a space in Venice Beach to launch their first West Coast brick-and-mortar eatery.

All’Antico Vinaio will open this weekend on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. Like other locations, expect a menu of authentic Italian sandwiches made on fresh bread Tuscan flatbread called a schiacciata. Expect sandwiches like the La Favolosa with salame toscana, pecorino cream, artichoke cream, and spicy eggplant; La Paradiso with mortadella, stracciatella, pistachio cream and pistachios; and La Schiacciata di Manolo with prosciutto cotto, mozzarella, truffle cream and spicy eggplant.
