Came here on a review from a friend...terrible food. Appetizer was cold, all the pasta dishes had the exact same red sauce base (just adjusted in small increments for other dishes) and my pasta dish wasn't cooked. I'm not talking al dente, I am talking, half the pasta was cooked and half obviously didn't get submerged in the water. Lack... More

Had a really great meal with our 2 kids (6 & 8) at the recommendation of our nearby hotel. All the dishes were excellent: florentine soup, tortelli with walnut & pear, sea bass, florentine steak & lasagna (lasagna was done more like a Mediterranean "macaroni bechamel" style rather than traditional North American style but very tasty & reminded me of...

We had an enjoyable dinner at the Osteria del Porcellino. Efficient and friendly service and good tasty food. The staff organised an outside table very quickly for us on a busy Tuesday night.

My wife and I ate at this restaurant after a local we met on the airplane recommended it-- he said he had been going there for 20 years and I can see why! The location and ambiance are great-- it's down a little alleyway on a cobblestone street where you get the full vibe of eating outside in Italy. The... More

This is my third time to Florence and I will dine nowhere else besides at Enzo's restaurant when I am in town. Great food, service, wine, and atmosphere. I always have a fantastic time while visiting and it is a great place for a solo traveler to meet others. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a nice... More

We had a reservation at this restaurant on the 14th August as it had been recommended by a receptionist at our hotel - we were looking forward to a special meal as it was the last night of our holiday. We (4 of us in total) arrived promptly at 8.30 pm and were shown to our table. It was pretty... More

We had the best steak of my life 15 years ago (bistecca a la Fiorentina), and we just had to go back!! While it was still delicious, the meat was less tender than what we remembered. When I find myself in Florence, I will still go again, as the restaurant is centrally located, cozy, and gas overall freat food -... More

The food was so good here we returned a second night. Wonderful salad, steak and potatoes. Of course, a sample of Lemoncello too. If in Florence, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

My wife loved this place when we first visited Florence a few years ago, so we had to return. To be honest, wasn't as good as first time, food lacked real taste and seasoning. I guess the lasagne was just being served up in bulk, since it wasn't too warm. Wine and service was fine, but wasn't blown away this... More
