Description: At La Bottega del Buon Caffe we have been producing seasonal authentic Florentine dishes for years. Yet, the summer of 2014 marks the start of a new era as the Buon Caffe team launch a selection of exciting new organic and gourmet concepts. In collaboration with the restaurant's new owners, Claus and Jeanette Thottrup, Buon Caffe's head chef, Antonello Sardi, has successfully developed fresh and innovative gourmet menus which are now available both at lunch and dinner. With the emphasis on natural locally sourced ingredients, Buon Caffe offers authentic Tuscan food that creatively combines the best of classic and contemporary cuisine. Authenticity and honesty is at the heart of all we create at Buon Caffe and our menus are created individually according to the season. Today's catch of fresh fish is delivered from the Mediterranean daily, free-range meats are supplied by local artisan farmers and our vegetables, fruit, herbs and honey are bought from our farm in the country. Respecting our Florentine location our menus are designed to reflect the region's unique gastronomic heritage and vibrant culinary culture.

Firstly, you'll need to book in advance to secure a table on the weekend. The current restaurant appears to have about 25 covers. Secondly, La Bottega del Buon Caffe' is about to relocate in the next few weeks to, I believe, a position along the Arno and in striking distance of the Ponte Vecchio. At the moment (early November 2014),... More

We were absolutely amazed at the food and service at this gem of a restaurant. Best food we had of the many impressive meals we had in our week in Italy. The delicacy of the dishes and the attention to detail was absolutely superb. The tasting menu was on par with the very best in Napa and New York. Definitely... More

A little bit out of the centre of Florence, this is a hidden gem. If you want to try the flavours of Tuscany with a twist of cooking ingenuity then I suggest you make the effort to visit this restaurant. A very good tasting menu that is matched with an equal selection of different wine, picked to appreciate the food.... More

Wow! I returned here after eating here last year. I loved it last year, but was a bit surprised to find a new and renovated restaurant this time. Gone is the bistrot style atmosphere, replaced with very tasteful, elegant and subdued candle-lit ambience. Real chairs now are in the place of the plastic ones that were there before and those...

On a hot summers day in Florence you could simply not find a better spot for calm and chilled out lunch with friends. A stunning restaurant, very chic and beautifully decorated. Chilled prosecco was magically offered on arrival. Then we enjoyed a truly stunning tasting menu. For me the service was sensational and the comfort and attention wonderful, I was... More

I have been living in Florence for almost four years, and I would always pass in front of this restaurant on my way to work.

This would have been our fifth meal at La Bottega del Buon Caffe' in just over 14 months. The most remarkable difference between the "old" and the "new", is the complete remodelling of the restaurant to bring it in line with the sophistication and charm of Borgo Santo Pietro. The menu had been refined and offers patrons both an a... More

As stated in a previous review, this has been my favorite restaurant in Florence for more than six years. One of the charming things about lunch at La Bottega del Buon Caffe' has been the atmosphere due to it being family owned and run.

We had a simply delightful meal at this establishment. It was our best meal in Florence. The street is busy but the establishment is an oasis inside, and we had lovely personal attention from the restaurant manager. The wine pairings were thoughtful and delicious.
