I'm always weary of restaurants near tourist attractions, as they are usually overpriced with bad quality food. However, we were very hungry at decided to have dinner at Dante's. Let me just say that the food was SO delicious! I know that Italian food is good in general, but this food was homemade, fresh, and made well. We got gazpacho... More

Came to this place twice for lunch in the space of 4 days. I was drawn back by the amazing gnocchi with gorganzola and the second time had the truffle tortelli. Was the best food i ate in Florence (and i ate some great food) and might be one of the best meals i have ever had! You need to... More

Fantastic spot just off from the main square but we could still see Il Duomo and the food didn't disappoint either. It was a generous plate of procuitto and chicken liver pate on bread to start. This was followed by a spinach type gnocchi and spaghetti dish. All very tasty. Good value ina prime spot.

The location of this restaurant is perfect with a view of d'uomo. The food is good. The service did not start friendly, but during the night they started to smile.

We spent part of our honeymoon in Florence and we went here every lunch and dinner, it is a must. Great value, lovely waitresses and amazing food. I am a vegetarian, I had a different dish each time. I had been here in 2008 and was so glad it was still there! My husband loved it too, and he are... More

We dined here in 2006 and had such a great experience that I wanted to return here for my birthday dinner this year. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent - rigatoni with spicy sausage sauce had just the right amount of heat, tagliatelli with delicious sauce, great bread, good Chianti, and limoncella to top it all off. A...

Stopped here for lunch today. Wife had eggplant & I had meat platter because they don't do sandwiches. Both were OK, expect to pay for bread and A 10% service charge on top.

I found this restaurant by chance. Me and my wife chose the Gnochi with Gongonzola without knowing each other choice and was one of the best meals in Italy! Don't miss it!!! The restaurant is small, so arrive early.

You don't expect to find a relaxed spot where you can have a terrific meal along with a private conversation in the shadow of the Duomo, but that's where Sasso di Dante is, tucked back just far enough from the main flow of traffic. The salmon salad was outstanding, as was the salmon and zucchini pasta with cream sauce. The... More

This is right next to the Duomo and they serve local food. The wine selection was good. The food was not impressive. The goose breast salad had way too much fat trimmings and the osso buco was unimpressive. Tagliatelle with porcini was way to under cooked for my taste. Suggest you pick out door seating since the inside is too... More
