This restaurant is probably the worst service we have received throughout Italy. The waitress are double standard. They choses who to serve politely n etc. The pasta I had was blant and tasteless. I couldnt even finish 50% of the pasta, and the waiters didnt even check on why it was only half eaten. When we asked for our wifi... More

Was there 2 weeks ago, recommended by our tour guide - the pasta turned out really good. My wife & I only managed to try their pasta for lunch and it was good. Seeing others review, wish we had stayed for dinner & try their meat dishes others talked about.

Florentine Steak cooked to perfection! The waiter was friendly and attentive and recommended a good red wine. We returned twice to this restaurant and were not disappointed. Pizzas were excellent and the desserts are yummylicious. Good coffee too! Give it a try and enjoy what the menu has to offer.

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Situated just off Santa Croce main square we heard about this wonderful establishment from fellow guests at the Hotel Palazzo Lucchesi. We were so enamoured with both food and service we ate therre on two consecutive nights. Service was excellent; attentive and friendly whilst the food was the best we ate in Italy... More

We actually were looking for another restaurant that was supposedly near this one but we could not find it and Francesco Vini did not really have good signage so we thought it might be the restaurant we were looking for. When we went inside, sat down, greeted by the waiter and handed a menu we realized we were in the... More

This restaurant is wonderful. I asked them to make a caprese pasta and they did and it was amazing. Then, we got the tiramisu and it was the BEST I have ever had, no kidding. I will dream about it forever :) If you get to Florence, you must go here, it was truly one of the best meals I... More

Delicious food and wine, excellent service, lovely atmosphere. For some reason we kept looking for this place and couldn't find it and then realized on our last night that we'd been walking by it for days. An excellent but small menu, very authentic. The staff spoke English, which was nice.

The food was good but when went to pay we were told that we needed to pay in Euros because there credit card machine was down, which we found... More

Situated between Plazzio Vecchio and S Crose. Good range of Toscana food at a reasonable price. Went back for Dinner on another night and found it fully booked at 19.00 for the rest of the night. Shame.
