The Second Choice for the Evening was First Rate

We had taken the "Florence for Foodies" guided tour earlier in the day and we were looking for their top-recommended wine bar eatery. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts including maps and asking other businesses, we were unable to find our first choice. We had actually asked Caffe Pitti for... read more

I am thinking of giving up meals in restaurants for New Year's Eve entirely. No matter how great the reviews and how recommended the place is, we just end up with whatever on the plate, even in places we had tested beforehand (We hadn't visited this one, though, just used the recommendation). Lovely location, very good service staff, bland and... More

I have had better truffle dishes in some nicer and cheaper restaurants in Florence. For being in front of pitti palace, it is crowded but very touristic. The waiters try to be nice.

On a cold winter evening in Florence, with hardly a soul in sight, we stumbled across Ristorante Pitti, directly opposite the Palazzo Pitti. Fed up with bland spaghetti with tomato sauce, veal Milanese and pizza margherita which seems to be the only offerings of reasonable price on Italian menus, this restaurant was a real find and we would heartily recommend...

We found Caffe Pitti while strolling through Oltrarno and were very pleasently surprised by amazing food and great service for a very reasonable price! We ordered pork milanesa (2 for 3 as recommended by the waiter as the portion was huge!), the meat was delicious. Great Chianti wine recommended as well, and really tasty cheese cake. Overall very recommendable :)

We stumbled across this place when we couldn't get a table at Pitti e Gola. It was a nice surprise and the food was delicious. The wine recommended by the waiter was also 5 star. Would've rated it higher but the service dropped away at the end when some young girls came in and distracted the male staff (ha!) and... More

We went to that place for lunch with friends after visiting palazzo Pitti. The location is really nice but nothing else, food was really expensive and not even good. I ordered bruschetta (around 10E) and I get 4 really small pice of bread with a bit if tomatoes and mozzarella. Moreover, they were really slow!!! I really don't advise this... More

An early Autumn dinner opposite the mighty edifice of the Pitti Palace? Sure! & a very nicely decorated interior in which to so relax & take it all in...DO IT! Excellent & professionally managed wait service aside, what was delivered from the kitchen never quite made the grade....they had a seasonal card featuring dishes employing the new season's black truffles...

Ok this place has a good location but service was terrible. We have been there with couple friends just to have some snack and drink something. We ordered bruschetta which is similar to pizza but smaller and on the bread and it was total disaster. Some tomatoes were put on a piece of bread and that's it. I have been... More
