Good Burger, Fun Place

This was maybe the best burger Ive had in florence! The fries and vanilla milkshake were not so great, but the burger was fantastic. The playlist and atmosphere made up for the fries too. Really easy to find and fun with friends. A decent home away from home for Americans.

The food was good. The meat patty in the burger was massive. It was a relief to not have to eat Italian food for that meal. The price was also good. We got very irritated at the amount of time it took between getting a menu and actually placing an order. It would have been nearing on 20 minutes. There... More

If you want to take a break of Italian food, this a unique place in Florence in which you can eat American food. Great place with wonderful service and breakfast / brunch all day long. Food is very good and it is not expensive. Music is fantastic too. One can get back to the 50's 60's and 70's.

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

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.

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!
