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

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.
