We went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. Reservations are a must and we saw several parties turned away while we were waiting for our table The good was really good, great service and they did half portions for the kids. Highly recommended, a bit off the beaten path and definitely more of a local feel than a... More

With (an essential) 21:30 Monday night booking we were initially slightly concerned about being at the "end of service" but when finishing about midnight people were still queueing at the door - so no worries on that score. The restaurant is just "on the other side" of the river by one block and easily accessible. It stretches along what might... More

I've been there few times already and with every time I eat at the Santo Bevitore I am more and more convinced that it is one of the best restaurants in Florence. I love everything about it: the interior, the staff, always nice and smiling, and, above all, the food. Fresh ingridients, creative menu, delicious dishes prepared with great care... More

The very good service combined with the simple Italian approach to cooking. The wines compliment the dinner and there is a feeling of, this is where the locals eat. Great location in the Trastevere just over the bridge.

My husband and I ate here last year, that we had to come back and try it again. I love the appetizers of the meats, vegetables and cheeses, and I would probably come back for just that and wine again. The dinner selection had some weird combinations of ingredients for me this time around, but the rabbit ragout was great!... More

This place is absolutely worth a visit! The food is just amazing. Amazing. We walked by and made a reservation the same day (around 5pm.) and then they only had a few tables available in the back of the restaurant so would recommend to go there earlier to make a reservation.

Il Santo Bevitore is a popular joint just south of the Arno and a few bridges west of the Ponte Vecchio; a modern Tuscan restaurant with excellent service and really good food. We arranged months in advance for our family of 23 to have a prix fixe fish-oriented menu and it was great. Smoked salmon with shaved fennel to start,... More

If you want to go here for dinner (and i highly suggest you should!) book a table from the day before. My partner and I walked in and they didn't have anything for another hour and a half. So we went the night of our booking and the place was buzzing. Such good atmosphere, good music, perfectly lit, amazing first... More
