Great place to eat and to have a nice wine. If you want to eat a great bisteca alla fiorentina, this is the place to be!

I have found eating out in Italy is a nightmare very expensive and poor quality food, however this restaurant is still a little pricey but the food is good especially the deserts. Waitress however got our order completely wrong. My husband ended up with a plate of beans. However it was convenient to our apartment.

We sought out this restaurant based on other travel site reviews. We also wanted to try a restaurant on the Oltarno. There were 4 of us. The food was ok but we felt ignored by the staff. While I know that European restaurants do not rush the diners, being ignored seemed more intentional.

I ate in this hidden but lovely place in Florence for a lunch on my own. It was not easy at all to find this highly-recommended-on-line place, but it worth spending some time in doing it. The personnel served me even if it was almost time to shut for the afternoon break and I personnally can say I had one... More

Don't get distracted by the tourist restaurants that you must pass to get to the Trattoria Bordino! This little restaurant tucked away into a side street across the river has a wonderful lunch special: 8 euros for lunch (you pick what!) They don't waste their money advertising, their fame is spread by word of mouth. Our hotel recommended this place... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Florence, right in the centre of town, serves great Florentine dishes at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere and lovely food!

Firstly, it was towards the end of the Lunch rush and we had to wait 20mins ( with baby in pram) to get a seat... The chap assisting us to our seat was not very helpful at all. The waiter was very nice and tried to explain as best he could... Eventually we settled on the €7 special.......which was something....and... More

I have eaten steaks in New York at Peter Luger, Delmonicos, Gallaghers and in Chicago at Gibsons . Trattoria Bordino bistecca ala Florentina (Steak) is as good if not better than the aforementioned steakhouses in the US. It's actually better for me so I will definitely go back! If you order 2 glasses of house wine they will bring you... More
