I love Zeb so much I try to come here for lunch once a trip (I come to Florence twice a year) . It's best to try to go early as it's small and fills up fast. (maybe like 1230) They make different dishes daily and you can choose whatever you like and they plate it for you. I especially... read more

My fiancé and I were in Florence for only a few days, but ate at different places for every meal. Zeb is by far the best food we've had there. I had spaghetti bolognese and my fiancé had the zucchini ravioli. Both were equally incredible. We kept smiling as we ate marveling on how good the food was!

Really great tasting food. A little strange to get your head around as there was no menu. The chef came and explained your options and you choose what you wanted. He also paired your wine to match. We went with the two courses (pasta then meat) both were amazing. Big portion sizes. Really fresh and homemade with tastey sauces. Deserts... More

I studied abroad in Florence this winter and by chance my school's campus was a few blocks away from Zeb. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is charming, and the owners are so friendly and passionate about their food. Everything is made fresh, and the pasta with ragu is the best dish I've ever had in my life. Their wine... More

Well worth the visit. Food amazing. Local truffle–based dishes are sublime. We turned up without reservation and they kindly found a place for us. Space is limited. It's a delightfully enjoyable bar layout. We hadn't experienced Italian dining in that format before. Enjoyable. Front–of–house guy was a bit serious at first. But he warmed up with a bit of humour... More

Absolute top class food here. I couldn't recommend it more. Sadly, not a lot of atmosphere and I felt like the owner was scolding me every time I asked or ordered anything! The mother however was charming. A shame she isn't serving, the overall experience would have been an easy five stars!

Our son searched out Zeb having read recommendations as a must do when in Florence. We had lunch there on our last day in Italy and it was a perfect end to our holiday. This small, smart restaurant is a short walk from the Pitti Palace and served some of the most delicious food ever tasted. The family run restaurant... More

Exceptional food! The truffle ravioli lived up to all we anticipated. The secondi of peposo was so good, not to mention the stuffed chicken. To end the meal any dessert is fantastic, but the grandmother cake was particularly great and is a must try. Make reservations ahead or you most likely will not get to experience this great restaurant.

A Deli by day, a gastronomic experience by night. This 20 seat (all at a bar) presents fantastic food, from a small, ever changing menu. They are open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday only, and reservations are a must. Their ravioli stuffed with house made ricotta with truffles both in the cheese and on top, was the best ravioli I...
