Nice local restaurant

We at in the basement which has been converted from an old church which was very cool. The prices were very good and I really enjoyed the pork (cooked medium to rare). I highly recommend the bruschetta too! The linguine was good but I found it a bit salty. The service was excellent and the waiter... read more

Don't walk by this place and think "eh!". We ate downstairs in a very quant and private basement area that was quiet and nice. Food was good, service great.

We booked a local guide for a food tour and asked for a restaurant recommendation close to our hotel for our first night in Florence. Osteria Mescita San Niccolo was her answer. Boy was she right. The food, wine, and service were just what we wanted -- simple, local, and well prepared. The weather was nice so we dined outside... More

Enjoyed the lunch here. Friendly staff. Classic non complicated excellent food. We were sitting in door at street level, they also have a great cellar basement with tables as well as outdoor tables.

A recommendation of our Bike Florence & Tuscany guide Pietro this place does not disappoint! Authentic, mostly locals. A fabulous steak, great service, lively atmosphere. Great location just a walk down the hill from Piazza Michalango. Go! You wont be disappointed!

We stumbled upon this place 2 years ago when we climbed down from Piazza Michelangelo and enjoyed it then. Specifically went looking for it this time for lunch and it was as good as we had remembered. Best Spaghetti Putanesca I have had. A lovely walk across the Arno on a nice day and I would highly recommend a visit.

Highly recommend this place. Food is good, friendly staff who are happy to help translate the menu. Very atmospheric surroundings and all at very reasonable prices. Best to arrive before 8.15 to get a table, or book.

Since we started visiting Florence once a year in 2010, we've returned to this osteria every year. For a low price you get a truly authentic Florentine dish (my personal favorite being their ribollita).
