The place to go if you like truffles

Excellent restaurant situated on the Pitti Piazza. Beautiful place. If you can have the diner outside on the terrasse, this is an excellent option as the Piazza Pitti is quite quiet at night. There are various courses, but the best option is to go for the truffle menu. I took that selection of... read more

We stumbled across this place when we had just arrived in Florence and were looking for a quick dinner. 2 hours later we left, not because of slow service but because the food, ambience and wait staff were awesome. It is very easy to find, just head for Piazza del Pitti. It might be worth making a reservation. This isn't... More

We had a restaurant recommendations sheet from our hotel and fell over pitti whilst looking at the outside of the palace. It was a sunny day so we sat outside. The service whilst a bit slow to start then was attentive and friendly. I had the gnocchi with calamari and saffron which was fantastic. Casual and authentic and highly recommend... More

Our hotel reception staff booked a table at the Café Pitti for our last night in Florence when we told them we wanted a simple trattoria with good Tuscan food. What a gem it turned out to be. It was certainly the best meal we had during our stay. It is an unpretentious establishment on the Piazza de’ Pitti, that... More

Wow! I think half or even more than a restaurant experience is how you are treated by the staff. These waiters are INCREDIBLE. We continued to come back because they made each dinner so, so, so special I studied in Florence for five months and it is one of the best restaurant experiences I had. I brought one of my... More

Great food sitting outside gazing at the Pitti Palace on not one, but TWO nights out of our trip, it was that special! Paolo took such great care of us and was such an an enchanting presence. The Osso Bucca was to die for, as was the simple sphagetti del campo. Wonderful memoried there and we'd go back in a... More

We turned up to visit Palazzo Pitti on the busiest Sunday of the year so delayed our visit & sat to watch the queue from this cafe. Very friendly informative waiter and excellent decaffeinated coffee accompanied by a lovely biscuit. Great seat for watching the world go by.

After a week in Italy on our honeymoon (Venice previously, now in Florence and soon off to Rome) we had had some good meals, some ok ones and some poor ones. This was our first EXCELLENT meal. We were staying close to the Pitti Palace and wanted a meal on that side of the river (not in the centre of... More
