A great evening!

We arrived without a reservation around 8pm and could see that the restaurant was already full. We told the waitress that we could return at 9:30 if we could make a reservation and she agreed, thankfully!

We told the waitress that we could return at 9:30 if we could make a reservation and she agreed, thankfully! We were sat immediately on our return in the main section opposite the bar and it was still really busy with an eclectic atmosphere.... More

We were at first a little disappointed when we got there that we were seated in the smaller section away from the lively atmosphere. We were the only couple in the section but soon had others seated with us and werent so disappointed anymore. House wine was great and at the perfect price :) Ordered the duck and the veal... More

Enjoyed a long dinner here. Make a reservation as it fills up. Watch the waiters grab the red wines off the very high shelves lining the walls. We enjoyed a variety of foods - Umbrian prosciutto to start, salads, spinach and mozzarella, spicy pasta, and (small) shrimp. Desserts were creative and delicious.

We booked Il Santo Bevitore in advance as having visited it before we knew how popular it was, we were delighted to discover that seven years on the food and service was as excellent as previously. Initiallty disappointed not to have a table in the main part we soon came to appreciate the smaller room with six or so tables... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and left very satisfied. Had a chicken breast with tomatoes and mayonnaise that was very good. Simply a chicken breast, tomatoes, and mayonnaise, but perfectly cooked and really good flavors. Also had pasta with meat sauce that turned out to be a pasta with what tasted like beef roasted with wine. Really good food.... More

We sat outside tucked away by the window, even though we were outside I felt like we had a private setting. The food and wine was all delicious, we had already eaten at their sister restaurant Il Santino (Must see) Would recommend and go again.

Came upon this busy restaurant by accident. Very busy (we had to get a reservation for the following evening). Food was good, lots of locals, reasonable prices, great atmosphere

A wonderful experience. We waited in line few minutes (usually we do not do this) and we had a not that great table near kitchen entry. The service was very good. We enjoyed one dish from each section of the menu. The prosciuto was the best we've had in Florence. Fusion meal all the way after the prosciuto. Atmosphere is... More
