Great alternative to pizza and pasta

We had dinner here because we were craving vegetables. The food did not disappoint. There were plenty of roast meats and vegetables to choose from. The service was really good and the restaurant was huge so we don't have to wait to be seated. The other little bonus was there is a laundromat two... read more

We were advised to go to this place by a tour guide saying it was the only steak house she would go to and I can see why. My boyfriend and I both had the set menus with the Florentine steak and were not disappointed. We had a cold meat platter to start each.. Probably actually 1 would have been... More

Ate lunch with my family here today and the food was spectacular! Had the full course with wine and the food melted in your mouth. The gelato at the end capped it all off. The atmosphere was perfect and easy to understand why the locals keep coming back. Our taxi driver recommended La Spada and boy are we glad we... More

I'd give 3.5 if I could for the friendly welcome, tasty prosecco and bustling atmosphere. Food was fine but not outstanding though, as we found generally in Naples the meat dishes were the pick.

We found this place after the restaurant recommended by our concierge was full. La Spada is very intimate but not stuffy. Lots of families, couples, loud animated conversations all around. Beautiful decor as well. The service is superb with fast smiling waiters who speak fluent english. We had the awesome bruschetta, Penne Sorrentina, Spaghetti Pomodoro and the Entrecôte steak. For...

Placed right in the middle of the historic centre of Florence (although down a VERY narrow street) is this hidden gem ... looks minuscule from the outside but opens up into a number of comfortable rooms. Greeted by a large wood burning oven with chicken and pork being roasted on the rotisserie and of course the great biffstecca fiorentina being... More

We discovered La Spada ( Sword ) by following the nice smell coming out of the restaurant . It's a spacious place separated in small sections and it stretches between two streets with entrance in both . It has traditional local decoration . It becomes crowded by lunch time but this is explained by the excellent food . The menu... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who once lived in Florence. It was a great recommendation. The restaurant is a short walk from Ponte Vecchio bridge, away from the main tourist areas. We enjoyed the €35 (each) special -- antipasto of cold meats and bruschetta, Ribollita, Florentine style steak with potatoes and tirimasu -- typical Tuscan cuisine.... More
