Great value in a tiny family-run "hole in the wall"

Food was very good and extremely inexpensive. Reasonable sized portions for under 10 euro (most dishes, including about a 6 ounce portion of veal osso bucco). Great tuscan classics like fagioli a l'uccelletto, sauteed chard, etc. Friendly service. one note - it's REALLY SMALL - like ... no... read more

Back again, visited Mossacce 6 times last year (February, April 3 times, July, and then December) and every visit was just as special and the food just as good as when I first came in 2010. No wonder this place has been going for 90 years!!! I think we may well have been recognised by the staff this time, and... More

Wonderful as ever and good to see there is still a queue at the door before opening at noon. Never let this put you off. The local, regular clientele usually arrive early and two had finished their one dish and espresso whilst we were still deciding what to order! Service continues to be fast and efficient without you ever feeling... More

It was so good and authentic that we ate their twice during our stay in Florence. A family run operation, you can really feel that they care. My husband ordered the tripe, which seemed to impress the locals. It was delicious, as was everything else. Met some great folks there including the owners and staff. Just can't say enough goid...

Came across this place in central Florence and was not quite sure about it on first sight, as it looks like a very small shop. However, went in and although small, it was very friendly, with lots of local dishes and the food was fantastic, whilst not breaking the bank! Glass of Chianti, Plate of stew with white beans and...

Awesome spot. Seemed like a place frequented by locals. Our hotel suggested it and we were not let down. Sat at a large table with a giant family. Probably a family of 8 locals and they spoke limited English and My Mom and I spoke limited Italian, but we did just fine. My steak was absolutely amazing and the biggest... More

This is a no frills authentic Italian trattoria with great food. Basic, traditional meals made the old fashioned way. Always enjoy the meal here which is great value. It's a bit of a revolving door though - you're in, you're fed, you're out.

Was recommended by Susanna-probably owner of Johnson & Relatives shop. We were glad we went there not once but twice on the same day!!! The place was very small, probably fit max 40 people. It only opens 5 hours/day which 2,5hrs for lunch and another for dinner. We did not want to risk so we waited outside until exactly 12... More

Traditional Tuscan food to die for. When we saw the line to get in we knew it would be good and it was better, so worth the wait. The gave us a glass of wine and some cheese free while we waited. Prices are very reasonable. Be prepared to sit at a table with others and make new friends. The... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
