Fast friendly service. Americans, Germans, French, Australians and others all served with expedience and without bias by two fantastic waiters. The marinara risotto was the best I've had in years. Located opposite my fabulous hotel (Hotel Nuova Italia) it was the perfect last night to spend in Florence. Great house dry white to accompany the mussels.

This time round really excited to be back in Florence with my husband and kept telling him about the pastas and tiramisu in this restaurant. Once again, did... More

Lob's Fish was a great experience while in Florence! The service was great, and the food was amazing; we dine a few times there and the there was not a single dish that we didn't like. The ambiance was relaxing and the staff was friendly, and professional. The location is only a few blocks from all major historic attractions. Next... More

We had a dinner one night during our stay in Florence. We ordered various courses from the very friendly staff (have to say, we found... More

Lob's Fish Restsurant is truly a find. I am sorry we didn't know about it until our last weekend in Florence. The food was fresh, delicious and well prepared. The waitstaff were friendly and helpful. The decor is charming with peach linen tablecloths and quirky nautical decor. We loved dining at this restaurant. We shared the fish soup, which was... More

We came here for our last meal before we left Florence & it was by far the best meal & the best customer service we have received !! Every part of the meal we had (sea food platter, lobster, chocolate soufflé) was AMAZING !! & the wine was absolutely to die for !! Wish I could come here every day
