My girlfriend searched on trip advisor for restaurants in Florence and came up with la bruschetta cafe. The high ratings were fully justified, the food was exquisite and the service was 2nd to none. Although the menu was in Italian, the waiter ran through all of the dishes in perfect English and... read more

Easy to see why this café is so popular with tourists with its friendly, fun atmosphere encouraged by the entertaining up-beat staff. Good standard simple staple Tuscan dishes, served in a vibrant café environment.

Very good food, wine and service. The Brunello wine was superb. The second plate Filetto de la Bruchetta will be my favorite. My son enjoyed the chocolate desert and I did enjoy the coffee and the grappa.

Delicious food, excellent service, great value. We didn't have a reservation, but managed to get a table. Ask to see the ceramics in the courtyard for an additional cultural experience. Beautiful.

The food at this establishment is really great. We had a couple of kinds of pasta that we all shared and the huge T-bone steak that La Buchetta specializes in. OMG worth every penny! There were 3 of us, and we had a hard time finishing it, even though the waiter said it was for 2. They cook it very... More

my husband chose this restaurant based on TA reviews--walking there i was skeptical as the neighborhood seemed a little downscale--do not judge this book by it's cover! the food was fantastic-the waiter very helpful and honest- i had the ravioli with sauce of eggplant, tomato and peppers-came in a tinfoil package which gave me pause- but when i opened it...

This is not the place for you if you do not understand Italian..their comments were they are an Italian Restaurant thus the menus was in Italian. This did make service somewhat slow as the server had to translate the menus to most of the people in the restaurant. I did find this odd as the information outside on the street... More

Warm and friendly service to deliver delicious Tuscan style cuisine. The La Buchetta mixed antipasti was an outstanding opener followed by some of the best meat dishes I have ever tasted. The staff were great at explaining each dish and happy to recommend wine to compliment. We would definitely visit again. Very very good!
