We found a great choice of food, beers and wines at Birreria Centrale with the added bonus that we happened to be staying at the B&B Cimatori which is literally a few steps away. We liked it that much we went there 2 nights out of our 6 night stay. Personally, I would have probably dined there every night but... More

We always try to come and eat at Birreria Centrale as the food is simply wonderful. Great menu, excellent service, we are never disappointed, this really is a must if your in Florence. You can sit inside or out, both as good, great value for money.

We would never have found this place if it wasn't down the street from our hotel. The value was excellent. I had the filet wrapped in speck ham with the truffle sauce and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had ANYWHERE. Service was excellent and pleasant. Make reservations if the weather is not nice... there are a... More

My boyfriend and I often came here in the 2 years we lived in Florence to relax and have some lovely rare beers, I am belgian so enjoyed finding some of my home country in Florence. The beers were refreshing and music great at the right volume, loud enough to be enthusiasming yet still allowed normal conversation.

We stumbled upon this quaint, gourmet local joint on our first night in Florence. We were drawn in by what appeared to be a majority of local patrons (always an indicator of intrigue for my wife and I). We could not have been happier with the end result. We are accustomed to NYC prices, so for the value we received... More

Birreria Centrale was recommended to us from a couple who had been a year ago during their honeymoon. As we were on our honeymoon, and had not been to Florence before, we thought we would give it a try. If we would not have had a recommendation for this restaurant, Im not sure we would have gone. Its not really... More

Went here after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and so glad we did ... it was excellent! A really nice homely / local feel and the food was excellent and very flavoursome. It is no surprise that this place gets busy. We managed to get a table at lunch time and then went to go back on another evening but it... More

I think that the reviews here are horribly misleading. The food here is heavily Americanized. It is mediocre and the service was very poor. Please don't waste your time here. You are in Florence, go for authenticity.
