Wonderful food and service, perhaps one of the best we visited. Bright, clean contemporary decor all counter style seating. Operated by mother and son. We had a Tuscan pesto dish and sampled the meatballs on the side....some of the best ever anywhere. South side of the River.

Zeb is a counter serve type restaurant with a simple menu.. But that menu is simply amazing.. Best Italian I've ever tasted.. Only seats under 20 so be sure to book.. Sophisticated vibe

Had one of my favorite meals here after spending 2 weeks in Crotia, Rome and Florence. The menu changes every day and we got 4 pastas and 3 secondis to share between 4 people along with a bottle of wine for 105 euro (it was only that much because we got 2 truffle pastas). The other pastas and secondis were... More

Read great reviews in multiple places about Zeb and it did not disappoint . Modern , great lighting, all counter seating, yet cozy, waiter/chef and his mother were very friendly. Loved the ravioli with pear, truffled egg pasta, pasta with squash and burrata and pasta with ragu. Each pasta was a delight and flavorful. All was very fresh! Meatballs were... More

Honestly one of the best meals I've had. It's run by a mother and son team. They were warm and friendly. I highly recommend this place. Large portions for a reasonable price. Excellent quality. Will go back again upon my return to Florence.

This place is tucked away in Florence and only has bar seating. Check the website for hours. A colleague of mind recommended this place and I echo his sentiment! I had a lovely 3 course lunch with pear pecorino ravioli, meatballs and a wonderful dessert. Modern, yet rustic at the same time!

A local directed us to this restaurant and it was amazing.... no menu - and that was great with us - every item was great especially the ravioli with pear and the meatballs! On the "other side" of the Arnos at the base of an ancient medieval wall.... Toured the hillsides and then stopped in here for lunch - really,... More

This was the most amazing pasta EVER! Seriously, just go and experience it. Mother and Son team, who create some amazing dishes tucked away in the south corner of Florence, just over the Arno. We had the courgette flower ravioli - it was delicious - words cannot describe the parcels of heaven. They were so nice to us and the... More

This mother son store restaurant makes an ideal change from a traditional restaurant. We sat at a booth next to a couple from Italy. We shared conversations and a lovely dinner out! You order from a blackboard and although not printed, explanations in good English were provided and then re-explained on request. Reservations are required! I only needed one dish... More
