Great pasta

Great atmosphere. Efficient and friendly staff. The spaghetti i had was average, nothing special dont remember the name now was a vegeterian one. But the pasta my bf had was simply divine. It was the one highlighted with red in the menu called 13 gobbi (it was also meat free) and it was just... read more

My third time in 13 Gobbi. I love the food and the place/decoration. This time the service wasn't that good - maybe because of our time of arrival next to the closing time. Anyway I recommend it a lot!!!

Had steak florentine and osso buco as mains, started with the pasta e fagioli soup and truffle pasta to start. Excellent. Came here kinda on the late side, no wait. Got a great Tuscan wine. Overall, one of our top meals, best we had in Florence. Close walk from the St Regis hotel (or any in that area of town).

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel & we had the last dinner of our holiday there. Brilliant menu, lovely wine. It was very busy so be prepared for a leisurely meal (although we prefer it that way) but the service was very friendly & helpful. Highly recommended & for the quality of the food, good value too

Always a pleasure to return to 13 Gobbi each time we come to Florence. A small unassuming facade opens into a big dining area at the back. Place is always packed when we go so best to always make reservations before you go. The beef steak Florentina is always a must try. Service is good and price is reasonable. When... More

First, I want to say that I am an objective diner as I have worked in this industry the majority of my life. I have been a dishwasher and worked my way up to sommelier. Our experience was not just awful, it was offensive. We were told there would be a fifteen minute wait for a table... We waited over... More

We arrived late at night fortunately our hotel directed us to this fabulous local gem. The charming restaurant tucked away in a side street but once inside the warmth and energy of the staff and patrons overwhelms you. Our waiters marco and Miguel could not have been nicer picked a fabulous local wine for us and basically picked our menu... More

We stayed in Montefollonico and were so lucky to find Gobbi on our first night so we were able to visit twice - it was the perfect combination of un-pretentious local dining and high quality Italian food and wine. Both times we enjoyed the fresh pasta tossed in the giant cheese wheel-unforgettable. The waitstaff is largely comprised of the owner... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
