The guidebook talked it up but we were a bit disappointed. Very reasonable prices but not great service. We were the only non Italians in and they seemed to be more interested in looking after their regulars. Food was OK but we had better during our stay.

Good food with good portions, for €15 you can have a full menu. Staff speaks well English and they will help with everything.

One of the best restaurants in Florence. Mostly locals and the food is unbelievable! Very reasonably priced as well. A true hidden gem.

A friendly neighborhood restaurant with both locals and tourists. Their 15€ fixed price menu is a good value. Portions are large. The wine is good. The waitstaff is efficient. A fun experience. Everyone feels at home here.

We chose the restaurant because it wasn't smack in the middle of the tourist crowds. We enjoyed our meal and noticed that we were the only non-Italians in the restaurant. The food was good, but the service even better.

We went there in our recent trip & we couldn't find another place as good as "Osteria dei pazzi". The waiter was good,the ambiance excellent,the food incredible and the decoration very interesting (also the colorful restrooms). Definitely a recommended place,a must do in firenze.

We came here 17 years ago and loved it. Unfortunately we were then unable to find it but after searching here on Trip found it again. So it was on our list for this trip. Now wish we had never found it! The place has gone downhill, as has the food. We were so rushed, as they had several large... More

Warm reception, dependable food and a great house wine makes de Pazzi a favorite in the Santa Croce neighborhood. You can't go wrong with the 15€ three course lunch menu. Choose gnocchi al sugo with a main course like pork steak or grilled smoked cheese and vegetables. (Or be brave and have the Trippa!) A neighborhood classic filled with locals... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our wine tour guide who was born and raised in Tuscany. The food was awesome and the service was even better. The owner took a break from his singing to visit our table and offered us some fresh parmesan to go with the rest of our wine after dinner. Good local wine selection and... More
