Being a Trip reviewer I always have a look at their reviews when I am going somewhere. I do not take all reviews seriously because we all have our own tastes but I do find them a helpful guideline. OMG not this time..this must be one of the worst italian restaurants I have ever been to, and I have been... More

We came here at the recommendation of a couple of guide books and both the pastas and meat dishes were well-excited and flavorful. Service is prompt but appears disinterested. One of the annoyances is the auto inclusion of the 10% service charge which is clearly targeted at tourists. The objection to this practice is that you are forced to reward... More

My husband and I have our favourite restuarants in Florence which we keep going back to. We decided to try Osteria de Benci on this visit on a recommendation from our accommodation. It is in the Santa Croce neighbourhood which is our favourite spot in the city. Osteria de Benci, what a find!! We had the artichoke salad then the... More

Food was good, however we were met by the most belligerent and rude waitor who dismissed our concerns about one of the meals. Utterly rude and unprofessional. Do not recommend

Went here twice during 3 week stay. I am a very good cook and my son loves my spaghetti carbonara- once he tasted it at Osteria De' Benci- he said theirs was so much better. I had the strawberry risotto which was fantastic!! Came back with bigger family group and every pasta we tried was great!!

We have been coming here for 7 years and have never been disappointed. The food has always been consistently very good, with our favorites being the pasta carbonara, the bisteca, and, of course, the famous "drunken spaghetti". As to the service, maybe because we are regulars, we find it excellent, but the first times we did go, we felt the... More

I really liked the food here. Likely the best spaghetti carbanara I've had. However, the service was horrible. Slow service is good... forgetful and rude is not. How about they spend less time watching girls on the street, and more time doing their jobs. That would be helpful. They forgot my order twice. And brought out the wrong item. When... More

Our third time to eat here over several years and it has not disappointed us. Good selection of pasta and beef but the beef seems to be their specialty. If you want your beef well done go to another restaurant. We like the young waiters who can help with your selection. We love the appetizers and all have been delicious.... More

Had a light lunch outside. Salads excellent. The wine recommendation from the waiter was perfect. Free WiFi helped us prime ourselves for the streets. Very reasonably priced for Florence. Toilet clean. Recommended.

Came here on the recommendation of a friend. The drunken spaghetti was superb. I had the garlic steak which is terrific for garlic lovers!! The wait staff is friendly and efficient. Go for lunch or dinner
