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.

I had a great night, the atmosphere is very good and the food is amazing. It's one of the best restaurant in Florence. The service is at top standard and I would suggest if you are visiting Florence.

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

We tried to drop in without reservation - that did not work as the place was fully booked that evening. Made reservation for the next day and it was worth waiting for. Food was excellent and the service was beyond the expected. Menu was relatively short but made up of many specialities for the day. Definitely on our list of... More

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch and while the service wasn't great, we thoroughly enjoyed our food. I ordered a simple spaghetti marinara which was flavorful, and my other half ordered a salmon dish which he enjoyed too. While the restaurant wouldn't be on my must eat at list, I would definitely return for lunch.

Travelling alone in Florence I chose places to eat carefully and I wanted it to be memorable and enjoyable for me to rave to others who wouldn't travel with me! This was one of those special places. Each day the menu is different with an Italian twist. I'd eaten plenty of lunches with eggplant or shrimp but this lunch of... More

Like others recently, we had high expectations given the reviews of others. We were disappointed as the food was ok but the service we had was awful. The waiter disappeared at times and didn't check up on us very much. It took ages to get a coffee after dinner and longer to get our bill!

Ambience: Simple, tasteful, cantina-ish. Service: Friendly, but over-casual and maybe a bit manipulative: asked what was available for dolce, the waiter said "Tiramisu"; I had to ask again, twice, if there were alternatives (there were). The primo, risotto, came (suspiciously) fast, but a long delay preceded the secondo. Cooking: One dish, a fish pasta, was good and hearty. The others... More
