You may have to share your table with others but that add up some fun and good to Mae new friends. Don't miss trattoria Mario while you are visiting Florence. Pasta and florentine steak are my favorite dishes!!

This place was very hyped up as a must-stop location. According to our host, it fills up completely at lunch. He advised us to go around 1 in order to secure a table. We went at one and the place was about half-filled. Within 20 minutes of sitting down, the whole place was filled. I ordered penne bolognese and veal... More

After reading the reviews for this trattoria, it was at the top of my list to visit and it certainly lived up to the great reviews. We arrived early and they were not yet open, so we waited around in the nearby piazza. As soon as the clock struck the opening hour, we immediately headed back, only to find the... More

This is right next to Za Za and is always packed. You do family style seating meaning you get to sit with random strangers. We met a cool couple from Kansas City there and it was a lot of fun talking to them. The food is good. I'd get the pasta or the steaks if you do go. The steaks... More

We discovered this little place a couple of years ago on a long weekend inFlorence. It was recommended by our hotel, and we almost didn't go because it was only open for lunch. But we made it and we're glad we did. This tiny place always has a queue, come early. The daily menu is written on butcher paper inside,... More

This Trattoria may be in the heart of the touristy restaurant area around the food market but it is as authentic as they come. I had simply the best beef fillet steak cooked to absolute perfection - char grilled on the outside and perfect medium rare within. Absolutely marvellous. The Pork chop was almost the size of a dinner plate.... More

This is the cheapest sit-down place I ate in while in Florence apart from a sandwich shop. The bill was 18 euro for 2 people for one serving of pasta, 1 soup, 1/4 wine and 1 desert. The food was nothing spectacular, my typical Florentine vegetable soup was too salty and not at all tasty. The place is packed to... More

Trattoria Mario offers a genuine experience of a Trattoria and a very well prepared famous Florence bisteca. Arrive 11:45am to be able to get a table without having to wait outside and for long. Having lunch there at this time goes along very well with a morning visit to the Galleria dell' Accademia (9:30am to 10:30am) and a quick visit... More
