Bistecca alla fiorentina (Florence style steak) is an Italian steak made of veal (‘vitellone’) or heifer (‘scottona’) that, combined with the specific preparation, makes it one of the most popular dishes of Tuscan cuisine. It is a high cut including the bone, to be cooked on the embers or on the grill, with a degree of “blood” cooking. It is among the best known Tuscan dishes. The meat comes from cattle of the Chianina breed.
