Best Lasagna Ever

Our tour guide recommended this place and the lasagna. It didn't look too impressive, but I still think about how it tasted.

Food is consistently excellent, service as well. Not gourmet dining, but hearty and delicious. Servers are extremely friendly and attentive. You may even get to enjoy their singing while you're dining.

Food and choices are plentiful in Florence, but this restaurant was close to our hotel and recommended. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. We had fun and happened to sit next to a family with who we had a great conversation

We hopped into Osteria dei Pazzi completely by chance, and it ended up as one of the best restaurants we have been on our entire trip in Italy. The ambient is totally familiar with Paolo, the owner, being an excellent and cheery host, he will never pass by your table without chanting some traditional Italian songs on a full baritone...

Chose this based on good reviews and recommendation from another who'd been previously. Went for a late lunch. My wife and I had the price fix menu, 16 euro, 3 courses. The bruschetta was very good, the tortellini with meat sauce was just ok. My wife's gnocchi pesto was just ok. The third course, chicken with spinach was good,but the... More

We came here while in Florence and it was our favorite. Luciano Castello recommended it so we knew it would be great. Ricardo was our server and he was very helpful as we do not speak Italian. He recommended his favorite pasta which was something with cheese on penne. I don't remember but it was incredible. We also ordered the... More

Love this place -every time we visit Florence, we make at least 1 stop here. Paolo, the owner, & his staff are just a lot of fun - the best part is the food is great, too. The cheeses, grilled veggies, Ceci & Cannellini, soups & the Tagliata (grilled rare sliced steak) are fabulous. Paolo just makes it more fun,... More

Just few minutes from Santa Croce you can find this unique place. You can find almost everywhere in Florence good food, but in this place you will find entertainment while ordering and eating, menù and waiters are so funny! I ordered a delicious bistecca fiorentina, so juicy and perfectly cooked. Highly recommended

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
