I ate here with a group of 17. First things first, phenomenal! Amazing service, very friendly staff constantly asking if they can help and seeing how your meal is going.

Francesco Vini sits in a quiet Piazza in the Santa Croca area of Florence. With alfresco dining the perfect setting for a long lunch of quality classical pasta or pizza. Wines and food very well priced. Service good and attentive we were so pleased we lunched here twice in 5 days.

Francesco Vini is the Only Restaurant you need to eat in when in Florence. Whatever your taste is in food you will find perfectly prepared here, steak, pasta, pizza its the best home cooked meal in Florence. Find your way there near St Croce, and you will experience the authentic cooking of Tuscany, and the exuberance of Fabio the owner.... More

Don't be affraid of the size of the steak, anyways it's meant to be shared 😉 have to remember that the included weight is the bone as well. Our steak weighed 1.1kgs and it was cooked medium just the way we like it. Even got a private tour of the wine cellar.

This restaurant was recommended by our friend and we couldn't be happier with our meals! The place is just off one of the main squares so is quite easy to find, not too crowded either. We were greeted by friendly staff who spoke good English. We started with a pappardelle with wild boar ragu and it was delightful! Rich flavors... More

Lucky for us, Francesco Vini was located near our apartment, and it quickly became our go to place. The food was excellent and the owners and wait staff were not only competent but very friendly which made dining there quite special. The rabbit is not to be missed!

This restaurant was near the location where we were working each day and we went several times over the month. The service is very friendly and responsive. The food is quite good, although a little pricey. The atmosphere - both inside and out - is pleasant. Definitely a place we would return to and remember fondly.

We had a lovely long leisurely lunch in a relatively quiet side street. Food and Wine were both delicious - i'd recommend the Eggs Florentine with truffle!

When in Florence one must have the famous Beefsteak al la Florentine. And this is the place to have it. A mammoth 1.5 kg tender porterhouse from a local breed of cow, cooked rare. More than enough for two.

My mum and dad have been going to this restaurant for a few years and chose it for my dad's 80th celebrations...the bistecca had been ordered ahead for my husband and nephew (but they always have it!) and a few of the girls had the most delicious fillet cooked in a wine sauce...those who had space for creme brullee (my...
