Great neighborhood restaurant

Very friendly local place, with wonderful service. If you tire of pasta and meat, this place has great chicken.

One of the two best meals I've had since arriving in Italy three months ago. Fresh pasta with truffles!! Veal piccata with mint! What a delicious touch. Will definitely head back there next time I'm within 10 miles.

Ristorante Accademia on Piazza San Marco obviously sits right between Museo San Marco and the Accademia – and it’s a locale with many, many tourists and often one where the food and service are not prime. However, this restaurant is as good or better than many in the city. Aside from several tourists, the restaurant had many Florentine families out... More

We stopped in for an early lunch before visiting the museum and were promptly assisted. We thought that this was mainly due to the fact that there was only one other couple in the restaurant. As we dined, the true lunch rush began and we were surprised by how attentive our server was even with the increase in business. Between... More

It felt good to eat real italian food, not the crap you find in most "tourist-trap" restaurants. The Ristorante Accademia is what you can expect from the Italian cuisine: fresh ingredients, tasty dishes and an unforgettable experience. It saved our stay in this beautiful city of Firenze.

Really nice, atmospheric restaurant, as soon as you walk in and sit down you feel comfortable. The food here was really tasty, nothing fancy, just proper, authentic Italian cuisine. Had a caprese for a starter and a mushroom and truffle pasta for main, such a nice, deep, rich taste of the mushrooms in the main. Quite reasonably prices for the... More

Because I wanted to sit in a different place pointed bu the waiter, he wasn't very nice with me then. He took a while to take my order and was like I was invisible there. Anyway, the food was good at least....the price is average in touristic places.

This is a very unpretentious restaurant but was full the night we went. It is advisable to book. The menu had plenty of interesting choices but the two young women sitting next to us suggested that we should try the "Wine and Dine" menu as they had. Four courses with a glass of wine with each one. Also a glass... More

Excellent selection of dishes here, including some traditional preparations and some alternative choices. Good selection of wines available by the glass, too, for reasonable prices. Our smoked salmon appetizer was well-composed, fresh, and light. The fennel salad was very good and my Michelangelo salad with arugula, pear, and pecorino cheese just couldn't have been better. They have a fresh grilled... More
