I have been to Osteria Porcelino in my first night in Florence following the indication of a friend, and this place became my place in the city!! Very traditional, fresh and tasting dishes of pasta, meat or even the salad and antipasti .

Went for lunch. Great atmosphere. Tables were close together so it spurred convo with the locals. Try the pasta and bacon dish, not on the menu but amazing! Locals a call it the seven sins pasta. Because it is so rich. Service could have been better but I think there was only one server at the time.

Tucked away on a little side street behind the famous wild boar statue in Florence this restaurant provides awesome food and great service. Their selection of salads including caprese, Caesar and Greek salads can easily be taken as a meal by themselves. Their eggplant with mozzarella, tomato, and basil is also an excellent starter. We also enjoyed their spaghetti with... More

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
