The food was delicious, Meats were cooked to perfection, lights were too bright and it felt like you were in a cafeteria, service was ok which may have been due to a language barrier. Food would be 5 stars, service and ambience 3 stars which is why I gave it average rating

It's our first evening in Florence on 19 Nov 2014, and we were wondering what was good for dinner, especially after days of pasta and cargo loading in Rome. Researched Tripadvisor and found this restaurant, about 15 mins walk away from our hotel. It's an excellent choice - we had risotto with artichoke, speghetti with clams, vegetable stew and vegetable... More

This was recommended by the staff at our small hotel and we saved it for our last meal in Florence. Truly a family place with grandma busy in the kitchen. Very cozy atmosphere and nice authentic dishes. Grandma even wished us a good evening on the way out. Great end to our visit.

Café Cafaggi was recommended by long-time Florence residents. It is close to San Lorenzo on via Guelfa, but somehow not overwhelmed with tourists. We had a table for ten, which was no problem. Most of us ordered separate dishes, also no problem. All of us were delighted with the food, the service and the friendly atmosphere. In fact the dishes... More

As others have said, this is a family run restaurant frequented mainly by locals. We got a lovely welcome and good recommendation for very reasonable red and white wine. Most of us ate from the 19 euro set menu - the pasta to start was superb, amongst the best we have ever had - the beef and salmon choices for... More

The lady who runs/owns this restaurant is the nicest person we encountered in our 4 week european holiday. She tried to help me with an Italian translation of a document I had concerning our daughter (written in Italian) and though her English was limited, she tried her hardest. Truly a lovely person. The food was excellent too and we felt... More

A true gem ,with lots of locals, not a tourist trap. I returned to this restaurant after years of not being in Florence, and still as good as it was. The Family had all aged , but still run a very good Restaurant, The food as all ways was very good.

The host of our Florence B&B recommended Cafaggi. We made it our go-to place for our entire stay in Florence. We tried something different each day and were never disappointed. If I had tried the pesto the first day, though, I would have had this amazing dish every day!

We stumbled across this place in the late afternoon and after having sampled some less than great places in Florence decided that we would give this a try in the evening. Having also read the reviews on Tripadvisor prior to returning for dinner we found that this was one restaurant where every review was spot on. This place is a... More
