Steak heaven!

Great pasta. Cooked with flavor and care. Wish it wasn't 37degrees and too hot for beef. The steaks look huge and amazing!

This is a hidden gem in Florence, the pasta is fantastic, the beef tagliata is delicious. Terrific value and friendly service, very very casual - all about the food.

Interesting varied menu of traditional Tuscan fare. We had bruschetta pomodoro to start and prosciutto which was delicious. I had carpaccio and my friend had pasta bolognese which was very good. Followed by tiramisu and lemon sorbet. A litro of the house red, a glass of vino santo and service all came to €40 a head which seemed very reasonable.... More

Osteria De'Benci was one of the best restaurants I ate at during my three-week stay in Florence. It was so good, in fact, that my husband and I ate there four times. The petite steak with balsamic vinegar reduction was phenomenal...truly one of the best steaks I have had in my life! Also, we ordered the special risotto twice: one... More

Sat outside. It is definitely not as formal as many other places and didn't get the feeling you needed a reservation. We had the steak and it was very good.

Went there with my family and should say there was only one thing among the stuff we ordered that i really liked and that was the side which was made from carrots. Staff and service was very average in italian standards. The weather was so hot that we couldn't have steaks. Maybe they are famous for that but we haven't... More

Went here on the suggestion of a friend who went a while ago. Unfortunately the restraunt must have changed since they went. The waiter didn't seem too happy to be there either. We decided on some brushetta to start. Was probably the worst we have ever had, and 3 times the price of what we had for lunch yesterday. For... More

we sat outside and ordered the drunken spaghetti based on a recommendation from a friend and it was delicious. We also had the barbecue chicken, since we had been eating so much steak and fish on our trip. it was similarly delicious. house wine was great.

Took my fiancé here after the rave reviews about the Florentine steak and it did not disappoint. Despite the menu reading 'served bloody' the steak was cooked a perfect medium rare. The side of beans was also delicious. I had the pasta cooked in red wine myself and it was ok...I would recommend the steak.

A local friend recommended this resturant nad glad I went. I ordered the famous drunken spaghetti (cooked in garlic and red wine) and it was sour and tang-y in a good way. I also had the tuna carpaccio salad and the spicy chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was delicious.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
