My husband and I just got back from dinner at Lob's. We are "fishetarians" so am always eating fish and seafood. I had the best grilled sea bass - superb. My husband had salmon. Everything was very fresh, service excellent. We definitely would go back. Prices reasonable. A winner!

I have never in the 12 years that I have been living in Florence eat fish soooo fresh. I'm a Long Island native and fresh fish is easy to come by...eating fish, well you can pretty mush know when fish isn't fresh. My husband, 5 year old and myself wanted to put theory to the test. So we ordered a... More

A great find in Florence, a well-appointed restaurant serving only fresh seafood. Hosted by Davide & Daniele, guests are welcomed with a glass of prosecco. Menu varies with availability but all meals were well-presented. The restaurant has a pleasant ambience, softly lit and with a maritime decor. Prices were modest. We dined here three evenings and enjoyed the food &... More

We have been to Lob's 3 times in 7 days and have never had a bad experience. Mind you, We have never been in when the place has been heaving with people. It's always been fairly quiet. The food at the Lob's is second to none - the freshest of ingredients and a chef that is clearly a master of... More

The restaurant was not busy. The young, gum chewing waitress unsmilingly showed us to our table and plonked down the menus. Half an hour later she deigned to ask us what we would like to eat and drink. We just about managed that although there was no eye contact, no smile..she seemed more interested in what was happening outside. The... More

I had the pasta with seafood (it has all different kinds of shrimp, clams, octopus, mussels, etc. it was amazing. Portion was a good size! Stuffed me up. My mother had the crab risotto and it was delicious as well. It is definitely a great hidden gem in Florence. Prices were not bad at all! Waitress was very cordial.

We had a very good meal here. My husband and I both had sea bass -his grilled and mine steamed with vegetables. Both were perfectly done and very fresh. There was only one choice for wine by the glass - a white Tuscan which was acceptable. The service was slow at the beginning, but we were there when they just... More
