And I should know, because I've eaten there more times than I can count and tried at least 2/3 of the dishes on the menu. Each year I run a writer's retreat in Florence, and Osteria del Porcellino is the FIRST restaurant I take them to because I know it is a winner every time. How do I love it?... More

On a recommendation I came here as part of a large group. Despite several requests for items not on the menu they were very accommodating and no one was disappointed. Looking over the pictures I noticed that every plate was clean. I had the pappardelle with the wild boar sauce and loved it. Next time in Florence I will definitely... More

Good food, good service and a reasonable price. Great italian atmosphere, who could ask for more. The leek and walnut risotto was very tasty.

The restaurant was recommended for lunch by the staff at Hotel Lungarno. We liked the food so much we ate here twice. Pasta dishes were excellent and all the other food diners chose around us looked delicious. This is more of a locals place so few tourists to deals with. Staff and diners were very friendly. Both times we went... More

My friend and I traveled to Tuscany in November of 2013. Before heading into Florence, we asked the clerk at the front desk of our fattoria to recommend a restaurant. She suggested we head to this gem, located just a few blocks from the Uffizi. What a find! We were greeted by Armando, an extremely personable and helpful young man... More

Just off the market place this is a very nice restaurant frequented by locals. We had the lunch special for 12 euros and enjoyed it thoroughly. We were on the sidewalk but the inside looked inviting as well. We met a local shopkeeper having lunch and had a delightful conversation. Don't stop too quickly and be taken in at the... More

It is abundantly clear that the owner of the restaurant, Enzo, knows exactly how to run a restaurant. The meal is slightly expensive but it is worth every last euro. I recommend the lasagna, the pasta with clams in a garlic sauce, and the sliced steak. The service is incredible and the wine is also very good.

I visited this restaurant with a friend who has lived in Florence for some time, and it was FANTASTIC all the way around- The service was excellent, they made me feel like family, interested in what I was doing in Florence and my life in general. Since I had just arrived in Florence after 5 years of being away, this... More

We ate there new years eve and the day after coz it was so good that we had to return before we leave Florence it is situated in an alley close to main square and we encountered it by coincidence. The waiters are friendly and the environment is cosy and rustic. This restaurant is a must!
