Obviously a local institution, this is a family run trattoria serving excellent home style cooking. For lunch, I usually get the trippa, a quarter liter of house red, caffe, and I'm a happy camper.

Went three times in one week. We were regulars by the end (and treated as such - friends!). Food was fantastic. THE PLACE for the Florentine Beefsteak. Perfectly cooked. The simplest of salads and pastas were elevated to food worship status. Not a miss on the menu. Busy place, make reservations!

We ate here 3 times when we were in Florence. We should have stopped at 2. The first time, one of the nice, friendly male waiters suggested that I try the duck pasta as it was a specialty and it was delicious. It was a bit noisy that night but bearable. The next night we went there again as we... More

Arrived early Saturday evening without a reservation and we're warmly greeted and seated. Bright cheery restaurant clearly run by family and very efficient. Had wonderful rich Riboletta followed by Bistecca Florentine. Could not been better. Very pleasant experience. I would go back again and strongly recommend for a casual dining choice.

We asked our Florence tour guide earlier in the day if she had a restaurant recommendation where she took her family to eat. She said, Casalinga. We got there and the wait was quite long but we stuck it out. As we were waiting in line, we figured out that there seemed to be an even mix of locals and... More

It is in the Oltra Arno near Santo Spiritu church. Many locals eat lunch here, but it is becoming more touristy. They make a wonderful Ribollita soup which is a meal in itself. Worth hunting out for the experience as well as the good basic Italian food.

Arrived there because of the good reviews, and they weren't wrong! Great food, not like that *** at the tourists places. Great prices, nice staff. Make sure to remember they work on "Italy clock" - 12:00-14:30 and 19:00-22:00. If you don't have reservation for dinner- you'll might be waiting for a table for a while..

La Casalinga was recommend by hotel front desk. 25 minute wait on a Sunday evening (7:30 pm) with no reservation. Food and atmosphere was outstanding. Waitress was more then accommodating trying to explain the non English menu. Very lively, once the tourists leave and the locals come for dinner. Definitely worth a visit.

This was our first meal in Florence and it did not disappoint. The bolognese sauce was to die for and the service was friendly and joyful. We met a couple from the UK and enjoyed a beautiful meal with delightful conversation. You cannot go wrong eating in or near Piazza Santo Spirito. Grazie!
