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

Maybe stick with a roasted meat dish here, which looked good. We just had salads and pasta, the latter were both somehow bland and salty. There is a takeaway around the corner from the main entrance should you prefer.

My family came across this restaurant while walking through the city one night. We were so happy with the meals and service we came back three more times while we were staying in Florence. The waitstaff were lovely and attentive, they made recommendations and on our last night gave us a treat of biscuits to dip in wine after our... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Everything was terrific: soups, ribs, pasta. But the chestnut pudding was the best of all.

La Spada was recommended to us by the owners we were renting our apartment from . It did not disappoint . It was busy and lively with a lot of options on the menu with generous portions and very reasonably priced . One of our best and cheapest meals in Italy .

La Spada expanded a while ago and is now a big place, but spread across a number of rooms. The service is friendly, but most importantly when we first went on Easter Sunday, absolutely packed with Italian families. We ate there three times in all during this year's stay in Florence; the pastas are lovely, as are the deserts and... More
