Had a nice experience here, came for dinner with my boyfriend during our stay in Florence, really enjoyed the food here, fantastic house wine, and really found it nice how the you can see the kitchen from the first part of the restaurant you can sit in where you enter. The tagliata beef was fantastic with cheese, and the potatoes... More

Closest to our hotel, but it was really good food and friendly service too. Prices are significantly better than restaurants next to the major attractions.

This restaurant was recommended by the lady at Domus Florentiae, where we stayed. It is a short walking distance from our hotel. Dinner started at 7 PM. We had no reservations, but we were accommodated immediately. Food looked like local Florentine cuisine. First time, my and I shared the beef filet, which was simply seasoned with salt and pepper, yet... More

La Spada's service and food was ok. The restaurant was very clean and beautifully decorated but if a friend was to ask for a recommendation on where to eat, I could not suggest this place. We went on a Friday at 8pm. Ordered the bistec fiorentina, the broccoli, and spinach sides. The cut of beef was really good however the... More

What a great place to eat the famous Bistecca a la Firorentina. Prepared on a wood-fire stove, service outstanding and decoration great. Definitely worth a visit!!

We happened to stop by La Spada last night for a meal. The wine was quite reasonable, and the steak was superb! Being from Texas, my standards are high, but this steak rivaled anything I've had at home. The waitress was attentive, spoke good English, and she let us relax and enjoy the meal. We highly recommend this restaurant, located... More

I had the 3 course chefs fantasy set meal & my partner just ordered the ribollita soup. Just as well as I had so much food. Starter was 2 pastas & gnocchi. Then a plate of mixed meat & potatoes. Then dessert. It was more than enough for us both. Good value. Waiters were friendly

Beautiful meal. We had a traditional cheese and spaghetti pasta dish and a mushroom ravioli which was divine. Quiet spot and good value for quality of food provided.

As a first timer to Florence, I was excited to try this place as it had come highly recommended from several friends. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately upon arrival, but the moment our waiter arrived and learned we were tourists, the experienced changed dramatically. I'll be the first to tell you that my Italian pronounciation is something to... More
