Florence is known for beef - ask what medium rare means!

Our huge steak for the two of us was still bloody when we asked for it medium rare. The potatoes were so-so. I would have chosen another vegetable.

Food is mediocre at best, we were her 5 years ago and loved it, but upon returning to Florence,came back and were very disappointed. We ordered our favorite dish, osso buco and the meat was chewy, supposed to be tender and fall away from the bone, we should have sent it back, but we did not. The place is mobbed,... More

We decided to try Zaza as it was on the way. The food was decent but nothing really special. Maybe it was because we didn't have the wow meal. This may have been because the menu was too extensive and one gets easily lost. The ratio quality /price is not really there. The best thing for the kids was watching... More

Located right on the Piazza Mercato Centrale. Very good. It has a large outdoor seating area but because of the very hot weather we ate inside. The waiter was very efficient, helpful and funny. He entertained us all evening. The menu was very extensive, providing a wide variety of selections. Everything we ordered was delicious. Their roasted beef selections are... More

This restaurant has almost everything one can offer; - variety of menu delicious and served in tıme - smiling and motivated staff; (actually this is generel for Italy and thanks to Italians for knowing how to treat their guests - in neighbouring France it is the opposite) - adjacent to an open air bazaar (non-food) to enjoy before or after...

Fun place to eat. Good seasonal food. My son and daughter remembered the restaurant from their respective study's abroad and found it just as good as they remembered. Pasta with wild boar. A soup tasting, including tomato bread soup. Great pizza & pasta. Good service

Just excellent, love florentinen sarcasm, amazing Tuscany wine, quickly and well cooked za-za food. We had liver pate, pasta and risotto with truffles -that's really something.

Had a lovely meal here with good food and wine for a reasonable price. Waited around 10 mins on a Saturday to have a seat outside but definitely worth it.
