An incredibly pleasant surprise

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.

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.

Was there with my son, who had been before with friends, my wife and my niece. The food here is worth waiting for. You have to have any of their pastas offered, the bread and oil at the beginning of the meal is a real treat after walking the streets of Florence and working up an appetite. And the salad... More

This restaurant was recommended to us as the one we wanted to go to was booked. I'm so glad that we went! It's tucked back away from the crowded piazzas. The inside is charming and cozy. Our waitress was friendly and helpful and the tortellini was amazing. They have outside seating but we opted for inside. We would definitely go... More

Frequented by the Florentines and tourists in this small and crowded beer garden in the center of Florence you will eat very well at a good price. There is a menu of the day but there are also several other options to choose from.The atmosphere is pleasant both in winter and in summer when you can eat outside in the... More
