Good food

A bit hard to find. We sat outside. Ate dinner around 7pm and we were pretty much the only ones there. Food was pretty good. Service was excellent. A very enjoyable meal with reasonable prices. A quiet meal away from the tourists. What could be better?

For the price you pay, the set lunch is ok. The steak is only so so and pasta is not tasty. The Napoleon is very good though! That was a surprise :p

Carn't quite put my finger on it, but I wasn't wowed with this experience. On the other hand it wasn't bad! I'd have to agree with other reviewers, first impressions stick, and yes the welcome and speed of initial service was a little poor. The actual menu choice is good and the food itself did not disappoint save the taste... More

I have been to this trattoria for lunch and dinner on many previous visits to Florence and have always enjoyed the experience, but this visit (for dinner) was very different. Certainly the worst aspect was the unfriendly way in which we were treated, but also the lighting level was far too low, the bread was stale, and the house wine... More

The place is busy, service a bit rushed. We had the 12 euro steak lunch special. While the steak was flavorful, it was pretty fatty. Potatoes were nice. For the price it was a bargain, but unlikely we'd return.

This trattoria is very close to the hustle and bustle of the Ponte Vecchio, but is tucked away on a quiet street and feels a world away. We went there for lunch twice while in Florence. The menu changes daily and there is the famous Florentina bistecca for 11 E or a first course/ second course meal with around 5... More

Trattoria Bordino was recommended to me by some locals who live in the area. You need to cross the Ponte Vecchio to reach it and then walk a few blocks. You'd never know it was there otherwise. The value here is unbeatable. For 11 euros, I ordered steak florentine with an appetizer which was a full dish of pasta. There... More

Recommended by the owner of apartment we stayed in, this little trattoria is tucked away in a side street, but just a few minutes walk from Pontevecchio. The set lunch was amazing value - 2 courses for just €8 - three or four choices for each course & great authentic food. Nice place to sit outside & welcoming friendly staff.... More

My mother, father and I were in Florence in October 2014 for 6 days and a staff member of the apartment where we stayed recommended Trattoria Bordino as having very good Bistecca. It is charming, casual, and literally one block away from Ponte Vecchio.. We wouldn't have known it was there unless he told us - and were we glad... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
