Was not our first choice but Wow!

We had reservations elsewhere but our taxi driver could not locate the restaurant. What a blessing. We returned to our hotel, The Westin Excelsior and Niko, the fantastic concierge recommended Il Profeta, called and got us a table.

Waiter was great took time to help us make our choices for food and wine. All of which was very good. Management stuck us in the back with in a closed room with no AC. Very expensive and overpriced will not go back.

Totally overpriced, waiters with amazing sales skills trying to mislead you about the secret ingredients and how John Travolta liked his dish... If you want to be really disappointed and feel cheated...go!! Otherwise look for the crazy amount of options Florence offers to you. I dont believe the good reviews these people have in trip advisor. I know that info... More

This Restaurant is totally Overprized, it has very Bossy servers, they do not allow you to order what you want!, they tell you what to order, if you want cheese in a pasta, they say: NO, this pasta doesn't need it... If you want to take a picture of your dish, they grab your phone from your hand, and tell... More

I read all the reviews so was expecting to be wowed! The staff are fake friendly and a bit OTT. The starters were ok very pricey. I ordered the risotto, which was disappointing, was more like a briyani!! My husband ordered a ravioli, the portion was tiny. The whole evening I could hear them upselling to neighbouring tables of Americans.............who... More

Since the first time I came to Florence with my family many years ago we always come back to Il Profeta. I have recommended it to friends to rave reviews. The food and service are among the best Florence has to offer. You will not be disappointed.

We tried this place because it was rated highly on this site and was only two blocks from our apartment. We were only in Florence one week, but ate here twice. The food was excellent. Pastas, appetizers, desserts. The giant T-Bone steak for two was worth it just for the drama of it. The sea bass stuffed with at least... More

This place is pricey, but incredible with fantastic service. The house specialties are 30+ euro but are truly fantastic - order at least one or two for your table. The bread is great, the dessert is great, everything. It was about 60 euro a person at the end. We'd come back.

My wife and family of 5 just returned to Il Profeta. We had been 2 times prior, last time 5 years ago. My wife and I travel quite a bit, and have always regarded Il Profeta as the best restaurant we have ever been. And once again- they lived up to our highest expectations. Not only was food just unbelievable,... More

We had a nice meal but it was hard to enjoy it since there was a very large party next to us that was very noisy. Fun for them, not so much for us. The wait staff tries to
