We were advised to go here after we asked where to get the best Florentine steak. We had a lovely meal outside in the evening. It was a wonderful total experience. I did have a delicious Florentine steak. I didn't have to share, as others in my group were put off a bit by it being served rare, the way... More

A great restuarant with very pleasant service, terrific food and an extensive wine list. It is a little bit upmarket compared to many of the places you can eat in Florence, but the ambience and food were well worth the extra cost.

My wife and I very much enjoyed eating here. It's a little quiet on this street, which is exactly what we wanted. Service was very good. We would come back again if we were visiting Florence.

This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker, and we were a little hesitant to try based upon location (very close to the popular tourist areas). But we were fooled. Excellent food, first class service, and a lovely interior (which is not so obvious from the exterior). Fresh pasta seasoned (and cooked) perfectly, portions were properly sized, fruit and vegetables were... More

While in Florence I decided to have lunch at this restaurants because I wanted to see the remains of the Roman Colosseum built 2000 years ago. The restaurant has great food and a average cost for a Florence place. After lunch I asked the waiter if he could show me the Roman remains. .....He was nice enough to take me... More

We found this beautiful Restaurant by chance and loved it so much we had to return on our last night in Florence. Nestled inbetween Santa Croche and Piazza della signoria, you'd be forgiven for thinking this is another overpriced tourist trap. Not so. The Francesco Vini has plenty of room inside and seating outside at the front and the back.... More

Francesco Vini used to be this tiny little cafe selling only sandwiches and coffee. Now, it is a gorgeous restaurant and wine cellar sitting on the foundation of the old Florentine Colosseum. I stayed in Florence for four days and ate here three of those days, each time spending well over two hours leisurely enjoying the various courses. My favorites... More
