When traveling it's always nice to have a restaurant close to where you stay. If you're ever in the area of this restaurant, it is an excellent choice. We ordered the tomato bread soup, osso buco, their daily special of grilled pig, and lemon cake with vanilla gelato. All of it was excellent. However it you want the gelato experience,this... More

We were intrigued by this spot, located very near our rental apartment, which seemed always to be busy. We tried it and were somewhat disappointed. It clearly caters to chic, young Italians and, as a result, is very loud. The food is cucina nuova and not that well done. The price/quality ratio is not good. Our Italian is pretty fair... More

The pasta with parm, pepper, and butter is in one word AMAZING, in two words FRICKEN AMAZING. Everyone says go for steak florentine but honestly skip it and just eat every pasta dish on the menu and finish it off with some limoncello..perfection

Trattoria Gargani, previously named as Garga, is a place not to be missed in Florence. I visit the city twice a year and of course Gargani too. Little hidden street, small restaurant, with art pieces to paintings on the walls...and the open kitchen! Pasta is a must, then depending on preference fish or meat, so delicious. Owners to the team,... More

We walked into Gargani's at 7:30 without a reservation and they were very accomodating. They found us a great table immediately. By 8PM there was a line forming outside. Reservations should be had, we were lucky. The bruschetta was very good, with a variety of toppings. The pasta was fresh and tasty. I had the "pasta scoglia" a seafood pasta... More

Ate here during a family trip to Florence in Sept 2014. It was across the street (literally) from our hotel. We noticed each night it was packed with people, so we asked hotel staff to help book a table (highly recommended). Food was delicious, wine was great. Enjoyed the lively atmosphere and cheerful waitstaff. Only negative was when we were... More

I decided to spend my final dinner on 22.9.14 in Florence at Gargani mainly based on all the exceptional experiences and reviews. Unrtunately, I was quite disappointed with my overall dining experience from the moment I sat down. No waiters/waitresses/manager said a word to me (other than taking my order), not a single smile the whole time I was there.... More

Trattoria Gargani is a medium sized trattoria in central Florence. Interesting frescoes, outstanding pasta and friendly staff made for a very pleasant evening.
