Our friends told us how great the food was at Cafaggi, so we looked forward to trying it ourselves. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing. The price very reasonable. It's a family run business, friendly and unpretentious.

If you wonder where the locals eat or whether there still are restaurants in Florence that are not aiming at tourists as such, then Cafaggi is the place to go ! The family has been running the place for a long time, food is genuine and very good and prices are more than democratic. I only saw local people eat... More

We stumbled across Cafaggi on a walk and booked a table. Upon arrival we were a little worried as it seemed quiet - we then realised that this really is a hidden gem frequented by the locals. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and helped us choose the best bottle of wine, which was only €8 - a far... More

Just returned from four nights in Florence. We were pondering where we were going to try a Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and while walking past Ristorante Cafaggi on our third day, my wife was attracted by the huge joint of T-Bone meat in the window. I think the thinking was 'if they're confident enough to buy that much meat, they must... More

We had 15-day trip in Italy, Amalfi, Venice, Florence, and Rome. This is the best restaurant in our trip. We hanged around the city and randomly picked it as a try, and they surprised us. Then, we came back at the second day to try other dishes, and they satisfied us again. We love every dishes we ordered. The T-bone... More

For 2nd time we went for fixed menu - 19 EUR for 1st (primo) and 2nd (secondo) course, service fee (coperto) included. For both... More

We only had one evening in Florence and were wondering around looking for a nice local place to eat an early dinner. Simply by chance we walked into Cafaggi while the staff was setting up. The interior appeared to be frozen in time but the food and service were wonderful. One of our dishes was simple beef and fries but... More
