Second time we dined there in two years. The meal and service was excellent, and the price was reasonable. The premises are small and a bit crowded, but that only adds to the real Italian atmosphere. The place is a bit of a challenge to find, but when you see the number of local patrons, you know the food must... More

With reservations, we arrived at opening and were seated at the very back of the restaurant next to a very noisy (!!) open kitchen and the area where the servers stood around. Service was only fair and uninterested in us. Food also was fair. We met someone there who had enjoyed this restaurant before and was disappointed in this evening's... More

Great little Restaurant with friendly helpful waiters and beautifully cooked simple Italian dishes. The restaurant is tiny, but all the better for it.

We came here with high expectations of enjoying a typical "Steak Florentine". Sadly, comparatively to other Steak Florentines we had tried, this one was under seasoned and unimpressive. The pasta was bland, and tasted no better than those we could buy at the grocery store. However, we were shocked and appalled upon finding hair in our food. Although the server... More

Great steak and tuscan food. Was packed. Sat next to 2 other couples. One from Lake Como, the other from Quebec. The atmosphere is such you end up having a good conversation. Very friendly staff. While i felt the steak was good, the lady from lake como let the cook knew she was not happy with her steak.

Small, crowded (not so though) place with authentic fiorentine food. The prices are very cheap and the staff are very friendly and cheerful! We became friends with the guys and went there 3 times in one week.

We had a really good time there,sharing our table with to Italian business guys who were clearly regulars there. The location -- midway the Uffizi and the Duomo -- is hard to beat. But .... the good is very plain, with a white bean appetizer that was worse than the canned American kind. Go there for the atmosphere.

JUST AWFUL. I was so disappointed in this restaurant. My daughter and I sat down at a tiny table right across from the open kitchen. Wait staff was friendly enough. She ordered simple pasta pomodoro, which was fine. I ordered a half order of ribollita just to try and the famous Florentine steak, RARE. Ribollita was, again, fine. But the... More

This is a tiny restaurant with a lively hustle-bustle atmosphere. We were seated in about 5 minutes, and served within 5-10 minutes. Even though our food came so fast, the staff didn't give us the feeling they wanted us to hurry and leave. The quality of the food was very good. My friend (who is an Italian and quite particular...

Le Mossacce has been a must in Florence for the last fifty years. It's a genuine and typical restaurant, family-owned, the best place for a good and informal meal in florence. The place is small and simple, the service is informal and kind. You can sit on the big table, next to people you don't know but who will easily... More
