Delicious meat and pasta

A local friend recommended this place. I went here for lunch and was satisfied. As primi I ordered pasta pepo and it had a fresh taste. The fiorentina was good too: ours was 1.3 kg and it was enough for four people. Side dish wasn't included so don't forget to order one (if you want of course). The... read more

Visited this restaurant this evening on the recommendation of a local. We were not disappointed! From the first the staff were friendly, attentive but not fussing around us, and let us practice our faltering Italian. The menu is not vast, which tends to be a good sign, and the food was delightful. I had a simple spaghetti dish with a... More

Next to trattoria Mario and very close to the Mercato Centrale you'll find this restaurant with a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We had lunch there. The pasta's were cooked well but the sauce was really too salty. That also goes for the soup. Osso buco had a good taste but could be more tender and also less salty.

This Osteria is very nice, lovely style and cosy environment. We had a great fiorentina steak with some side dishes. Everything was very tasty. Most of all the service was attentive and polite. We had a friend who doesn't like rare steaks. They all have been very available and careful with us to make sure our friend could anyway enjoy... More

Go here! Small but elegant. The atmosphere was great and the food was better. Their menu changes daily...I ordered the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce but they had run out of the gnocchi already so they served it to me with spaghetti. AMAZING!!! Just around the corner from Za Za's, which is bigger and we also tried, but Pepo stood out!

Was hoping to eat next door but it was closed so we went here instead. Ordered wine, pasta and water for five and the bill was roughly 70 euros. Not too bad and there was no cover. Pasta was great but for some reason many people were eating fried food.

We ate there our first night in Florence the food was good but not fantastic. I thought our waitress was slightly rude. The lasagna was ok and our other meals good.

No comments... Fine, just a restaurant at the corner of the street It's not bad, but I am really not sure how to justify this as "best meal in Italy", at least not for me
