We (family of 4) wandrered into this restaurant through their back entrance and gave ourselves an accidental tour before making it to the front to be seated. Yes, the restaurant has a interesting layout which has more to do with the cenutary old structure the place is housed in. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The house red was a... More

The restaurant was full and the host said if we were willing to wait a tangle would be available within 20 minutes. We decided... More

We ate here twice. The first night we had steak (cooked to perfection) and a mixed meat plate with roasted potatoes - very delicious! But don' t order the broccoli.... But we told them that we didn't care for it and they gave us a complementary dessert. The second night we ate spaghetti bolognese, also wonderful. The staff is very... More

A friend who lived in Florence for a few months recommended Spada for our day trip. It is central to main sites and on the way to/from the train. Spada has a modern feel with pop music piping in from the radio. The house red is excellent, the Ribiolitta and Vegetable soups were a healthy, hearty start ahead of the... More

La Spada was highly recommended by our concierge following my daughter expressing how much she enjoys eating a good steak. Our entire family decided to order the dish that he recommended which was their Florentine Steak. We were not disappointed. However, the steak is served quite rare. The service was a bit disappointing and it was quite evident that the... More

I was studying abroad in Florence for 2 months this past summer and La Spada delivers! They have outstanding food and a great Italian atmosphere. I highly recommend stopping in if you are in the area. Of all their dishes, my favorite is their Ribollita! Great traditional Italian dish done right!

This restaurant was recommended to us by the receptionist at our hotel after we paid a lot for some bad food in piazza vecchio. The menu looked a little uninspiring but the quality was very good. I had the balsamic grilled chicken which was lovely. Good atmosphere very friendly and much cheaper than other places

We went to this restaurant for our last dinner in Florence. It had been recommended by a friend and in was highly rated in our guide book. We expected a small typical restaurant but we were surprised to walk through 3 different dining rooms before sitting. I was with my wife, our 2 kids and my brother in law and... More

I was staying right across the street from this restaurant and decided to go there after reading other people's previous comments on tripadvisor. It is worth the effort. I had the 25 euro menu which was very generous and good. Only the house wine costs a bit more than elsewhere but it was of good quality. The waiters even offered... More
