We were given the recommendation from a taxi driver in the morning on our way to a meeting and decided to give the place a go in the evening. Such a gem of a place!! We ordered the rigatoni based on the reviews here and it was wonderful. Yes its simple, but I find simple is best! Especially when it... More

We went based on Rick Steves and found the food ordinary at best. The service was decent, but the food was just nothing special.

I was hoping for good things from this restaurant as most reviews on here are really good. When we walked in we were welcomed with a warm atmosphere and great surroundings. As soon as we sat down we felt rushed, with little time to choose food. The food really was only average and after eating in 15 other restaurants throughout... More

This restaurant is very close to Santa Maria Novella and serves delicious tuscan cuisine that is freshly prepared. The highest quality ingredients are used and nothing is pre-cooked. The beef was out of this world as was my very simple pasta with porcini mushrooms.The service was excellent - waiting staff who knew their stuff and were very attentive. I really... More

We got here early without a reservation and managed to get a table. The restaurant has a large section with an open roof (with a tarp to pull over it) where we were seated. Alas, it started to rain lightly and it had to be closed; but a very nice touch with it opened. I had an appetizer of zucchini... More

Recommended by the Martino at Hotel Medici, this was a great choice. Lovely food, good variety on the menu and buzzing atmosphere. Definitely worth recommending.

Was in Florence on an incentive trip organized by local agency. Had dinner at 13 Gobi & was surprising good consider dinner was arranged by a local tour agency. The steak & roasted chicken were really good. Love the cosy & unpretentious ambience, will visit again if I have a chance.

We booked this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel staff. They did us a great favour. The decor is 'funky traditional Italian', the food was great (do yourself a favour and order one of the steak dishes) and the staff were friendly and professional. 13 Gobbi means 13 hunchbacks. Why? Because touching a hunchback's back is lucky so 13... More
