Simply Delicious!

The meals are simply delicious here with generous portions. From appetizers to the first and second course, the seafood is cooked perfectly. The Cioppino starter is a meal in itself with healthy serving of mixed shellfish, and the octopus is the most tender. The service is always welcoming... read more

The meals are simply delicious here with generous portions. From appetizers to the first and second course, the seafood is cooked perfectly. The Cioppino starter is a meal in itself with healthy serving of mixed shellfish, and the octopus is the most tender. The service is always welcoming, polite, friendly and attentive with a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

After a day of traveling, we were tired and hungry and looking for an early dinner. We were outside looking at the menu, but didn't open for 30 minutes. The owner was just arriving and invited us in (even though he wasn't open yet) and treated us to a glass of prosecco. The service, food and ambiance were more than... More

a pleasant change from all the meat. Very good value and great taste. Staff were very friendly. Squid followed by sea bass was excellent. Good service . Would definitely return when next in Florence.

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.

I came here 3 years back with my mother. We came here for dinner almost every evening whilst we were in Florence. Returned back to Singapore and kept thinking about the food. 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

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
