Oh yes ! I really had a great dinner in the Povero Pesce restaurant in Florence. I have been invited there by some friends and upon their suggestion we started with a big plate of fried "sardine", what is supposed to be a "poor" fish: it was really good, tasty, a gentle fish taste. And one thing to notice was... More

I had an amazing experience in this resturant, the food was delicious, fresh and amazingly presented! And the service was on point; all the waiters and waitresses were so kind, patient and consideret, especially the tall blond waitress called Felicia! :-)

Small intimate restaurant with a seafood menu. Langostine Gnoci great. I could have tried to eat another helping but I had ordered fish in lemon butter equally good. My wife had Prawns and grilled seasonal vegetables she loved every mouthful. Yes we would go back. Tried somewhere else on another night, only because we could not get a table before... More
