My family has eaten out 6 or 7 times at 6 or 7 different restaurants in Florence and Rome and this was by far the best. We had 3 hugely different meals and they were all fantastic. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. This is the only restaurant we've eaten at that I would recommend. It's a rare treasure.

Our experience at La Spada was very different to the previous reviewer. We had a great time. We were seated promptly, the food came quickly and was delicious on each occasion. We had been recommended this restaurant for its Bistecca Fiorentino and it didn't disappoint. We ordered the special meal at 30 euro each, fabulous entree platter of meats, cheese... More

We're regulars when it comes to dining out, and I understand everyone has an "off"night, however, I cannot understand when you're in a foreign country, attempting to understand the menu, and the waiter is annoyed when you ask a simple question about an item in the menu... He sighs audibly, tells you "I'll come back when you're ready" and makes... More

The service is really fast although the restaurant is huge, which is always appreciated. The mozzarella was very fresh and good. I recommend you the ravioli dish, which was very tasty.

Though we usually chose our restaurants carefully through various sources, this time we picked this restaurant based on location and being too tired to travel much further. First of all the restaurant was huge. With 4 different seating areas. We got seated in what felt like a corridor between these areas, close to the kitchen. The waitress serving us could... More

Had an amazing meal here with an extensive wine list. Service was great and the restaurant is surprisingly big; don't be fooled by the front. Definitely try the spit roasts, they are fantastic!

Our host recommended us this place & the steak I tried was really yummiicious! The steak was cooked medium-well for me, very tender & juicy. I tried a local vege (broccoli & beans I think) dish which was too mushy & saltish by our standard. I would otherwise have given it another star. This restaurant is packed with locals during... More
