Amazing lobster and seafood pasta

We went into this restaurants without checking its score, and it is surprisingly good!! The seafood pasta was absolutely amazing that we ordered a second one. We ordered a plate of lobsters and other seafood, which was great too.

I went to Lobs with a good friend who lives up the street from the restaurant. As much as we enjoy Fuor Dacqua and tend to eat there once every other trip or so, Lobs dining experience is more relaxed, laidback and homestyle version. (and about 1/3rd of the price) . The quality of seafood is outstanding in a non-seafood... More

Interesting selection of black & white bread . After paying the very reasonable bill , we were treated to home made limoncello... More

I have been living in Florence for about one month now and Lobs is by far the best ristorante that I have been to yet! The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection and the accompany pasta is homemade and delicious. The atmosphere of the ristorante is cute and simple and makes you feel as if you are in a... More

We had a platter of different raw seafood, which was both delicious and fresh. A small plus in the book was the complimentary prosecco for aperitif. Definitely not $$$$ price-level.

We were recommended this restaurant by our concierge at the Atlantic Hotel. Promised us all the sseafood would be fresh. It was. Oysters are always a reference point. Fantastically fresh, served with lightly pickled red onion and lemon. Our seared tuna with pistachio crust and sesame perfect. Great bacalla as well. The lightly fried anchovies were delicious. All washed down... More

Florence menus are generally short on a fish choice. This place is recommended in our Eyewitness Guide to Florence & Tuscany so we gave it a go and it was so good we returned two nights later to give it another go! There are a few ricketty tables outside but we sat indoors where the decoration was nicely sea themed.... More

Lob's Fish is quaint on the outside and your eyes are literally drawn to the seafood display street side. When you enter you are definitely in a design of a seafood ristorante and then the magic happens. The sea bass here was undoubtedly one of the best I have ver had. The servers friendly, efficient and filled with smiles. I... More
