Gustavino is a great place to eat and drink wine in the heart of Florence. They are associated with the Lanciola vineyards, and are set up to educate your palate or just give you some good wine. The food is quite good — it's an old standby for us, never a complaint. I particularly like their salads, I think the... More

Gustavino is open for lunch (vs just the evening hours that are listed on Trip Advisor). We enjoyed our lunch - pumpkin ravioli for me and steak for my husband - plus amaretto / raspberry custard and chocolate molten dessert). It took the server quite awhile to greet us (they were too busy talking amongst themselves to bother with customers).... More

My wife, daughter and I had a memorable meal here. Gustavino boasts sleek decor - though it's not too fancy - a great wine list and friendly, good service. The pasta "Pici" with cinghiale (wild boar) was served al dente and went beautifully with the Brunello di Montalcino they helped me choose. The pigeon with pear was memorable and all... More

We found this place on a late-night roam with no place in mind. We were nitially attracted by the ambience, the large display of local wines, and the promise of fresh ingredients. This place far exceeded our expectations and became our favorite restaurant in Florence (and one of the best we've eaten in traveling about the world). From simple soups... More

We travel often to Italy and, while Florence is not to be missed, it is not my favorite city to visit because it is so jam packed with people... always. We most often make it a day trip which includes site seeing and shopping. It is always a long day, so it's nice to stop for a nice lunch. If... More

What a great place! The food is superb (very creative but based in authentic Tuscan ingredients) and the waiters knowledgeable (we got awesome wine recommendations, to the point that we decided to check our luggage in order to bring a bottle home with us). Most importantly, they made us feel right at home from the start. Our server Andrea was... More

Their menu is a bit more interesting than the standard Italian fare, so was a nice change. My wife and I enjoyed the food and were impressed by the wine selection. The owner? Was very knowledgeable and helpful.
