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

To start this review I wanted to express my confusion about a majority of the other reviews. This place is neither bad, not good, certainly not excellent or the best ever . . . . 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

Yes, we enjoyed sharing the seafood sampler and then were able to savor only abut 1/3 of the steak. Great wait staff!

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

We found this restaurant near our hotel, and as we felt like trying some fish we decided to try it. There are only a few tables outside, so it was nice to get one. The service and the food were really outstanding for such a reasonably priced restaurant. We had a bottle of wine, pasta with crab, and a mixed... More

We had a lovely lunch here in Lobs Fish Restaurant which was recommended to us by the hotel manager. We are two delicious courses each including crab spaghetti and scallop starters which were served with a glass of Prosecco. The prices were very reasonable in comparison to the other places we went to in the city. Would defiantly return.

Saturday night and we were first inside, outside (about 5 tables outside were full), but only joined by 3 other groups inside whilst we are there. Which is odd because the place is very appealing, has a welcoming atmosphere and the staff are lovely. Oh and of course the food was also very good and a bit different. Maybe it's... More
