Super Food but why the Bright lights

Wandered in without booking and were lucky to get a table as it filled up quickly. Staff were delightful and the family links became clear as everyone bustled away keeping a restaurant of happy diners content. It turned out to be the best meal we had in Florence and an interesting side light on... read more

We reserved a special meal at Cafaggi based on reviews, and were very disappointed. Throughout the whole evening it felt as if out party of 8 was an encumbrance. It took an hour to get menus and drinks. No-one ever came to ask us if we wanted anything (more drinks). At three other restaurants I have been to in Florence... More

I am so happy that I had a chance to have a dinner in that restaurant! Excellent food and service! Friendly stuff! It is a family business and that restaurant is run by a family of several generations. Salmon steak was simply melting in my mouth... Highly recommended!!!

We discovered this place by accident. We were looking for an another one and turns out that it's closed. Lucky us! The outside of the restaurant wasn't that appealing, but we took a look inside and it was packed. Which is always a good sign! The restaurant is basically run by all family members and the grandmother is the nicest!... More

We found this to be a wonderful friendly place with a really good and affordable daily specials menu. The wine recommended by the patron was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant enthusiastically.

Great authentic home cooked food, good service and good value for money. Worth reserving a table as it does get busy, well worth a visit

We decided to try Cafaggi based on a local driver's suggestion. The reviews are very accurate, it is run by the family and the lighting is a little bright but, food and service were very good. Enjoyed the house wine and several dishes including the chicken pate, gnocci, Fiorentina steak and spinach filled dumplings. And, we tried 3 desserts, all... More

This was recommended as our taxi drivers place of choice for dinner. Been in same family for generations and the interior is pure 1970's in a good way. Very clean. The waiter actually suggested a wine half the price of the one we chose and it was very good. Food was basic but very good and dessert was sublime. Prices... More

We went there following our hotel advice, and we were not disappointed. The food was very well cooked and tasty, and despite the fact that we don't speak Italian and the staff doesn't spek english very well, they still manage to explain the dishes to us. Another good point was that even though the place was crowded, it remainded quiet,... More

Spotted this place at lunchtime- saw the fresh seafood and beef in the window and decided to pop back for dinner when a full stomach wouldn't write off the afternoon. At 1930 they said they were fully booked but to come back in an hour, did so and they had reserved a table for us. Staff- friendly and genuinely passionate... More
