Wonderful gem of a family restaurant

After reading the wonderful reviews on Yelp, including one written recently by a trusted Yelp friend from New Orleans, I was looking forward to a nice lunch in Oltrarno near Chiesa Santo Spirito while in the neighborhood visiting Elizabeth Barrett Browning's former home, Casa Guidi. The last time we ate on this side of the river, we were disappointed at... More

Best meal in Italy period. I had the ravioli in sage butter sauce and it was just phenomenal. My husband had the special of the day: taglietteli (sp?) with a duck ragout sauce, also was delicious. Portions were generous, just ordered the pasta for lunch. Service was a little on the brusk-side and the menu was not available in English.... More

Lovely feel, down-to-earth food and friendly staff, who helped translate the menu! Chicken liver starter is delicious

Our host recommended La Trattoria Casalinga to us when we first arrived in Firenze. He advised us that booking was essential, and we're so glad we did! We reserved a table for 19:30 on a Monday in June, and despite thinking this was quite early for dinner by Firenze standards, found the restaurant to be busy already. Service was very... More

Just a few steps from Piazza Stanto Spirito, with its mobs of young people and the restaurants on the plaza is this true gem. I suppose one sign that it is authentic, there are no menus in English, but you can watch them make the pasta. Any pasta dish will probably be a treat. My wife had the pasta with... More

Reservations needed unless you want to wait some time for a table. Line forms prior to the opening especially at dinner around 7PM. Located across the river in several well lighted rooms, this place has a welcoming, bustling atmosphere. Not for a romantic evening. Service on the ball, portions good sized and prices not to be beat in Florence for... More

Located in the quieter Oltrarno section of Florence, La Casalinga was one of my favorite places to eat lunch as a student in there in 1999-2000. I was excited to return on my honeymoon 14 years later and was not disappointed! While the interior has been reconfigured and is a bit fancier than I remember, the things I love about... More

We dropped in after a long morning of walking through crowds, and the host (owner?) managed to seat us quickly despite being very busy. Our waitress then took over and was amazing. She balanced answering all of our <inevitably stupid> questions, getting our orders and food, and from what we could tell, doing the same for the rest of the... More

Our host recommended this place, so we gave it a try. It was very busy and we had to wait 40 mins for a table as we had no reservation. We ordered pasta with duck, sauted beef with pepper and tiramisu. First we were served some bread (alone) that was completely tasteless, but judging on our next experience it may... More
