Second night in Florence and walking back to Hotel. There is a butcher shop and restaurant across the street. We were offered bread balls as we passed by going to our hotel “Hotel City”. Their sign has a trip advisor logo in the lower half. Checked with the hotel and reviews on trip advisor “La Padellaccila”. Great service and food,... More

Stumbled across this place by accident really while we were out looking around the city. You could easily miss it as from the street it appears to be just a salumeria offering Italian meats & cheeses etc for sale. Don't be fooled. At the back it opens up like an Aladdin's cave into a medium sized restaurant. Nice atmosphere, friendly... More

My wife and I had this restaurant recommended to us by our hotel. What a great place for real Tuscan food. Pasta was very fresh. ( Get the wild boar ragu). You won't be disappointed. We ate there for lunch and came back for dinner same day. The Florentine steak is out of this world. Also the soup (Ribollita) is... More

From the outside it dosent look like much. But when you come inside is has a real old fasion look to it, that adds to the expirence. The food is not posh or fancy but it is really really good. The steaks are perfekt. And the meat is of the best quality. And the prices is also good.

we really enjoyed this restaurant and would have never thought to go in because the outside looks like a deli. But the further you went in you found a cafe style room and finally a large dining room. Service was friendly and attentive. I chose the porchetta and found it to be delicious ... It was tender and was spiced... More

Excellent quality food and service for a modest price with no hidden charges. The decor is basic but has a homely charm about it and the hosts are warm and friendly; a great place for families, couples and singles alike.
