Great American Food in Italy

By son brought my wife here for lunch, after taking us on a four day tour of Italy and France. What a great place to find for a good American breakfast of Bacon and Eggs. Everything was so good here.

As an American student studying abroad, I was desperate for some American style brunch food. It's really hard to find somewhere that serves omelettes, pancakes, etc so after 3 weeks without these, The Diner was exactly what I wanted. If you're abroad like me, you most definitely should have heard of this place which is owned by the same people... More

My husband and I were in Florence for 1 month and when we saw a diner with burgers we were thrilled. They have beef, turkey and veggie burgers with fries. YUM! It's also a great place for breakfast. Colossal sized cappuccinos! The menu is extensive with eggs, bacon, waffles, you name it. It is reasonably priced and the service was... More

I go very often to eat there since they do very good burgers I thing they should have more alternatives for who doesn't want to eat a burger . Many times i found it noisy. The staff is very polite and the prices are ok. I mean if you don't want to cook and you want a good burger it... More

Great little place for American style food which can be a great diversion from Italian while in florence. However as I visited about 3 years ago, portions were bigger and prices were a little lower....now the portions are small, food not so great, and prices are higher. The pancakes which my daughter was looking forward to, were very small, didn't... More

Omelettes were delicious and came with fruit,toast, and hash browns. The service can be a bit slow, but it's worth the wait! They serve breakfast everyday - so try to go during the week to skip the long lines!

We wandered into this place just looking to get away from the crowds and the heat. I had a cheeseburger and my wife had a classic club sandwich. Both dishes were really well put together, and the meat on my burger was tasty and done just right. The meals came with all the toppings and good fries. I asked for... More

The diner is well known to the american crowd in florence. Often visited to satisfy your cravings for a cheeseburger or pancakes. That said I must say they offer a really good burger. They offer all the classic toppers and the best part is the actuall meat is outta this world. If you are a tourist on a budget you... More

Some days you just need a burger, or a milkshake....and those are the days you go to the Diner. Food is classic American diner style (hence the name), though prices are *definitely* a bit more than one might expect for the aforementioned burger and milkshake.
