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

We stopped in for lunch even though we were not even hungry and ended up finishing every bite of our two ravioli dishes because they were so delicious. My husband had the ravioli with white truffles and I had the ravioli with zucchini flower and ricotta. You shouldn't miss this gem of a place.

My husband and I had lunch here after seeing the restaurant on a NY Times video on 36 hours in Florence. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is very small and all stools at the counter and a few tables. I had the most wonderful pear and cheese raviolis with a pear sauce. Really different but wonderful. My husband had...

Another foodie couple we met on the trip recommended Zeb for our lunch in Florence. It was near the gelato festival we were heading to after lunch, so the location worked well for us. Seats are stools at a bar. Our server described the primi piattis for our selection. Our new friends had highly recommended the pear ravioli, which did... More

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
