Il Santo Bevitore is playing at the top of what in Florence is a crowded league. And playing cleverly with a limited but imaginative menu, well cooked and presented, and served with friendliness and a super casual style. They keep prices reasonable, and have well spaced tables, so you really must book in advance. Don't miss it!

We just managed to get a reservation for this place and it was well worth it. Service was efficient and friendly and the food great. Starters of almond, prosciutto and fig soup and Riccioli(spicy pasta) were brilliant and matched by cod and chicken for main course. Washed down with some nice Brunello it was a great evening. Book early, as... More

at every visit I have to Florence, I spare always a dinner time to this sympatic and friendly brothers place where you found Florence people's entertainment soul. Rich choices of tuscany food & wine presented in a dynamic ambient.. with vivacious staff, animated clientele.. a spectacular place near to downtown and to Arno river..

We read about this restaurant from a travel article in The Times, so checked it out.....thanks goodness we did! You need to book, they only hold the table for 15 minutes, and they were turning people away. We were looked after so well, and had a terrific meal...we shared a meat platter and then enjoyed pasta with rabbit....all delicious, lovely... More

We had a 7:30 reservation at Il Santo Bevitore. As with Sostanza there must have been a good 20-30 people waiting for the doors to open. While we enjoyed Bevitore, it wasn't as memorable as Sostanza and the service was rather uneven and disinterested. We started with a delicious cheese plate, then we all had pasta dishes, and a bottle... More

Had lunch after stumbling upon resto Small menu and very busy always a good sign. Had the grilled hen was delicious and jus with potatoes savoury and left you wanting more. Staff very accommodating with translation of menu and offered great wine choice. Also tried the wine bar il santino also excellent but tiny 15 seats.

We arrived in Florence several hours late due to a symbolic four hour strike by Italian air traffic controllers, which also resulted in our baggage not showing up. After checking us in to our apartment, our rental agent took us just down the street to Il Santo Bevitore. Although it was nearly 10PM and we had no reservation (the place... More

We go here every time we visit Florence and it never disappoints but bookings are essential. Great food, great wines and a vibrant feel. Antipasti are full of flavour, soups include calamari and king prawn and, this time, a warm almond soup with prosciutto and fig. Two beef dishes were cooked perfectly and a rabbit thigh stuffed with liver was... More

Make reservations!!! We came on a Saturday night only to find they were sold out. Nothing available all night. So we made reservations for the next night right away. We arrived on time.....they will not hold a reservation if you are too late. This place is busy, so be on time! The wine presentation is interesting with the owner pulling... More

A very busy restaurant with good food over the river of Florence. Service was a bit erratic, but nothing serious to complain about.
