Good plain food

Excellent food in a plain setting opposite the Pitti Palace. All courses are tasty Tuscan cooking. Wine list is reasonable though a bit limited. Good value by Florentine standards. Free wifi is a bonus. Staff pleasant and friendly. Let down only by the WC, which is not at all up to standard... read more

This has been the highlight of our holiday/honeymoon so far. Recommended by our hotel we walked here last night and had the most amazing food, amazing service and amazing time. The view of the Pitti Palace is so different. I have never seen waiting staff work so hard, at one point we thought they might be the owners as they... More

We went to this place two times to grab a sandwich. The panini mediterraneo was delicious and the cappuccinos are perfect! Also the people are really nice

Everybody rushed in this caffe when it started raining. The staff was overwhelmed. We took 3 fixed priced menu with pesto pasta and seasonal vegetable flan or tuscan chicken. Nothing to brag about except the location and a good central table. Very small space, with table on ground and first floor with very limited space (kids upstairs, not really recommended).

Do not get misleaded by my rating. I had a great time in the restaurant and the food and the wine were good. However, the reason why I had a great time was because my company was perfect and the wine was amazing. The Fiorentina beef was a bit disapointing and the staff was friendly in a "forced" way. They... More

Had dinner here with my mother after a long search for somewhere with Aircon (was 28 degrees at 21.00). The decor is simple, clean and stylish and we were shown to a lovely large table inside. The waiting staff, Paolo and colleague were excellent. Ready with suggestions and recommendations without being pushy and, as always, their English far surpassed my... More

Best restaurant from Florence! If you want a fantastic meal with the most friendly waiters you have ever met, this is the place to be! The menu with truffle is amazing and the steak Fiorentina is seriously stunning! Beside having great food is the whole experience also important.

Two of us ate and the restaurant seemed not busy at all. We went here because on Mondays in Florence it seems that not many restaurant are open. We only wanted a bite to eat so we went for a starter and a dessert. Our starters were quite good, but average. Then we asked for a dessert, a cheesecake which... More

Had a great experience eating here. Service is off the chart, food was delicious and the scenery is just as amazing. Looking over the Palazzo Pitti, this restaurant offers delicious truffel dishes, as well as incredibly tasty and pure authentic itlian food. ps. Our dog was treated with great hospitality as well!

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
