Simply amazing authentic Itallian meal...

My husband and I dined here while on a break in Florence. We stopped by the night before to book our table as we had heard it was very popular. The door was locked when we went to book as it was so busy but the waiter came to the door and took our booking without any problem. The restaurant... read more

This was the very first restaurant that we ate at in Florence, and to say that it was a spectacular start to our trip...is an understatement! This quaint and cozy spot did not disappoint. Myself and everyone I was with, thoroughly enjoyed their meal. In fact, one of the members in my group got the Veal Ossobucco, and said that... More

Had a wonderful meal at Vini e Vecchi Sapori. Our waiter was the owners son. He had fun with us; making jokes and helped us with the menu. He recommended the house red wine which was very good and cheap! I had the cheese ravioli in a rose sauce to start and the osso buco as my entree. This was... More

Definitely book if you want to eat here! And expect to share a table. They were reasonably friendly and there were a good number of locals eating here. The antipasti was fantastic, the ham absolutely delicious. We had wild boar papadelli for primi which was very good. We enjoyed the whole meal, which was very reasonably priced. The coffee was...

We traveled here during the summer and I had made a rez in advance for dinner- they were turning people away telling them their next dinner rez was two months later. IT is a small family restaurant. My son who was ten looked at the menu and he told my husband that he was sad because they did not have... More

I stayed in this trattoria with my wife and we enjoyed the dinner. The trattoria is quite small with a few tables but it's really hospitable; the staff is smart and nice. The food and the house's wine is really good; not only for turist... I suggested it to taste a bit of Tuscany. Just a tips... the place is... More

Osteria Vini e Vecchi Sapori is a great place to eat. And it’s actually not that hard to find, Via Dei Magazzini is off Piazza della Signoria. We walked in just before the lunchtime break to book a table for two for the evening. We were offered a table for 7.30pm. When we arrived at 7.32pm the place was already... More

Good luck getting a reservation but if you do then you won't be disappointed. The food is pretty good and the service is great if you are a friend or local but otherwise not so much. I really couldn't care less, I went to taste the food and it was delicious. They closed the doors whilst we were eating which... More

This little place , just left down the little lane next to the Gucci museum is the find if the century. A friend recommended it and from outside it doesn't look like much but my wife was determined and knocked on the door before lunchtime and got us in for easily the best food we had had in Italy and...

I have dinner here every time I am in Florence, always making a reservation due to the size of the restaurant. A table of two and booked well in advance we were seated on another table with another couple. The restaurant is small enough as it is and you already feel on top of people so you really don't want... More
