We knew while in Florence we had to try the Bistecca alla Florentina. We ate here and enjoyed the best Steak we have ever eaten! We had been on a food tour of Florence and learned about the steak and hoped we would find the right place to do it justice! 1kilo of T-bone steak, shared between two, cooked rare.... More

I ate in Il Grillo in the evening and had made my mind up that I wanted a Pizza, the food was ace and the staff were extremely friendly and were more than happy to chat. The food was well priced and the Tiramisu was excellent. Top notch.

The location was great facing the square but the food was less than average The service was good and the waiters were helpful We choose different types of food and some choose pizza which was the worst ever we eat during our trip to Italy

Ate here twice on a stay in Florence. Food was very good although the service is a bit hit and miss. Pizza was very good and the view from the outside dining is great, over looking the republic square. The beggars are a bit of a nuisance and having had to inform several over the course of the evening that... More

The line was long for dinner, the food average, the service was efficient, but the view/setting was beautiful. We started with bruschetta and a nice local red wine (we spent the afternoon at that winery so it tied the day together well). My husband had the pizza with hot sausage (pepperoni) and I had a good salad with tuna. The... More

I ate twice at this restaurant once for breakfast and then for dinner on my last night. Breakfast - I had a ham omelette which was nice. Dinner - My partner I think got the better end of the deal. He ordered the stuffed pizza balls for a starter and the steak - he said his food was excellent. I... More

We stayed at a hotel on the square, and while waiting for our check-in, we decided to take in the sights and sounds of the square. The outside location could not be beat! We split a pizza which was good, but nothing extraordinary. So, if you are seeking an extraordinary gastronomic experience, I would keep looking. If if you are... More

There was nothing wrong with our meal or the service - everything was OK. The entire experience was very average, though. The food is slightly overpriced for its plainness - you can easily get more interesting and tasty dishes elsewhere for the same price. No particular reason to avoid it, but nothing particular to recommend it either.

We are here twice on our short trip in Florence, both times we loved it! Order the mini pizzas for entree, you won't be disappointed!
