Truffle Filet - enough said

Such a nice surprise to stumble in here and have one of the BEST meals of our trip! It was a busy night in Florence with the Fashion Shows going on, so geting a seat at any restaurant was near impossible. We originally tried getting a table at the restaurant next door, but am glad we got in here... read more

A local told us about Birreria. What a find located near Dante's house of birth. Delicious, fresh ingredients. Best hamburger I've ever had in my life! Beef was unlike any other I've tasted. Was topped with a thick slab of fried mozzarella. Potatoes were divine. Everything on the plate was thoughtfully prepared. Even the thin garnish slice of cucumber was... More

We stumbled upon this trattoria on the small Piazza Cimatori, near the Bargello Museum and stopped for lunch. The restaurant's patio area takes up a good bit of the piazza, so it's easy to sit outside. My husband and I split a pasta sampler plate -- a large plate of three different pastas -- and a salad and that was... More

There are standard Italian restaurants everywhere in the touristy area in Florence, and you get the feeling that most are adequate while a few might be really good, and Trip Advisor reviews don't seem to help much around here. So we stumbled into this place primarily because 1) it looked crowded, and 2) it was close to where we were... More

We were actually directed here by the maitre d' of our first choice - which was full. We asked him for a good recommendation and, after some thought, he sent us to Birreria Central. I cannot imagine that our first choice could have been much better. The food, atmosphere, and waitress all contributed to a wonderful evening meal. We arrived... More

Good value, traditional restaurant in the centre of Florence with a slight German influence. We had a quick lunch with a brisk turnaround. The highlight was the mixed past for two, served over a hot plate. The restaurant was busy and service was efficient and quick. Probably not worth booking for lunch but not too long to wait to get...

This small (maybe thirty places) restaurant was quite a surprise. I expected a "home cooked" cuisine, and instead found a gourmet presentation of traditional Tuscan dishes. The house chianti was excellent and well priced. The servers were attentive and very friendly. It was a great meal. I look forward to going back.

We went twice Dec 2014 whilst we were on a short break in Florence. The lovely girl waitresses who work in the restaurant are great very friendly and give great service. The food was great very fresh. The 1st day we went I had the Tortellini with truffle sauce (amazing) and the 2nd day I had the pork with prunes... More
