My job as faculty member of a university brings me to Italy at least twice per year to discuss with my research collaborators. I have not written any review but feel compelled to write this review because of the good time I had at this restaurant. After a long transatlantic flight and then a connecting flight, I always arrived in... More

We ate here for dinner. This is one of the most authentic experiences that we have had and this place is definitely not a tourist trap. The service is wonderful and the food is great and beyond reasonably priced. My friend had the yellow squash ravioli and I had the pesto spaghetti. Both were delicious. We also had chianti and...

Our hotel recommended Zeb as it was on our way into the heart of Florence from Piazza Michelangelo. We almost missed the place since its very unassuming. We walked in and everyone was seated around a U-shaped counter and all the fresh selections for the day were on display under the glass counter. In a city teeming with tourists, it... More

We were there last November. Had read about it somewhere and decided to give it a try - for lunch. Gave us an opportunity to go on the other side of the Arno. Well, it was just great. The set-up is very clean and modern and the food is simply perfect. We went back the next day and it made... More

One of the best restaurants of our honeymoon. No tables, the service is done at the counter, the ingredients are all shown in a shop window, all very fresh and tasty. The service is very personal and attentive!

We are a family of four that travels often and love food! We were in Tuscany for 12 days and had walked by this restaurant a few days prior while in Florence. We loved this area and decided to have dinner one night here on a whim. There was no seating at the main bar but they were able to... More

I am giving this place 3 stars because the food was good and the space is appealing and interesting. However, my overall experience was negative, for the reasons described below. We went to Zeb for lunch based on good reviews on TA and in the New York Times. Had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated, which gave us... More

We found this by pure chance.And what a gem. Seating is around a central counter.The son will give you a verbal menu of what his mother is conjuring in the kitchen.We had home made pasta with black truffles for the amazing price of 14 euros,and the son had perfect wine to match.Absolutely delicious.

Went here for a meal due to good reviews on trip advisor. Upmarket restaurant but no tables, you sit round a bar area or in the window, this doesn't retract from your meal. The food was excellent. They tell you what is for the first course and then bring your food order. They then tell you what food there is... More
