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

Truly a gem that actually had locals eating there. Really good food and good service. Ossobuco was great.

We made a reservation at this restaurant based on others experience at Tripadvisor. It turned out to be at really good choice. We started with pasta in tomato and cheese. Delicious. Note that recommended dishes are marked in red in the Menu. And they are marked with good reason! Main course we ordered the Fiorentina steak for two. Wow! So... More

We found this restaurant by accident as we were walking around Florence and we decided to enter as the atmosphere looked welcoming. What we first spotted was the restaurant decoration which is very interesting and original. The service was good even with the restaurant completely full. We started with some fiori di zucca which were disappointing as they were oily.... More

It's hard to find a bad meal in Florence, but 13 Gobbi stands out amid all the delicious pasta available. They had omelettes, delicious, and all the standard dishes you find elsewhere. The decor is fun and quirky, and the space inside the restaurant allows for big groups without it feeling loud and crowded. We had steak, pasta, an omelette... More

This was probably our least favorite restaurant in Florence. It's not that it was that bad, it just wasn't that good. Very, very noisy. Service felt rushed and not very helpful. Food was so-so.

Cannot rate the restaurant more highly. Had the rigatoni with mozzarella, basil and tomato to start and it was incredible. So full of flavour. Then we had the Florentine steak and in terms of flavour it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. For dessert my partner had the chocolate cake and it was fantastic. All in... More

This was our 1st time in Florence so decided to ask our taxi driver where he would suggest us going for good food and he suggested Trattoria dei 13 Gobbi. Thank goodness we had a map and he marked on our map or not sure if we would have found hidden gem. Very small place but awesome Tuscan Italian food!!... More

I've had a few Florentine steaks, and this by far was the best one! It was done to perfection and the rigatoni were amazing! The atmosphere was phenomenal and the servers were wonderful. I will definitely be going back next time I am in Florence... and I highly recommend.
