What a little gem just in a side street near Basilica di Santa Croce. Everybody gets a warm welcome of the waiters who visibly like their job. They do everything to make you feel comfortable (sing, jokes etc.) We had the lunch deal of euro 16 which give you a 3 course meal. Food is of good Italian quality and... More

Came across this quaint little neighborhood restaurant near our rented apartment. My wife and I split the traditional t-bone steak with spinach and potato sides. The food was excellent, as was the house Vino. Small operation with owner, waiter, chef. Excellent service, looked like mostly locals were dining there, although the waiter spoke English quite well. Decor was fun as... More

Non descript on the outside but do not let that fool you. Very polished and professional service. Food was excellent, I had the linguini with clam sauce and it was great. I would highly recommend this place, great quality food, superb service and reasonably priced.

Recommended by our accommodation. The place is nothing special to look at by that is part of the charm. Food was amazing. Best ravioli we have ever had (we had a second serving). Tiramisu was incredible too. Staff were super friendly and spoke good English. Seemed to be a lot of locals/Italian there too.

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...

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.
