Late Night Dinner

After a long trip back from Venice to Firenze we found this restaurant in the Santa Croce area. The Pici Carbornara was the best that I ever ate. The tagliatelle cinghiale (wild boar ragu) was excellent. This is a small restaurant with a limited menu but with fresh great flavors and service. Very... read more

My family and I visited Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome and ate at about 20 different restaurants along the way and La Buchetta was by far and away our favorite experience for the whole trip. The restaurant works on all levels - amazing food, relaxing decor, cool music and unbelievable service. The owner (I assume it was one of the... More

La Buchetta is by far the best meal ive had in Europe! Have been here for 4 years and tried many places from Trip Advisor. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The owner served us directly, his passion and knowledge is incredible. He recommended 2 dishes for myself (Steak & Ravioli) so i went with them and... More

La Buchetta isn't very big (approximately 40 people can be seated at a push) but it is worth visiting if you are in Florence. The staff will take the time to explain the menu to you if you need them to. The food is very good and ranges from Pasta to Steak (the Florentine steak is excellent). The wine list... More

This restaurant is life changing. I came to Italy to visit my sister and we stumbled upon this place on a whim. To best describe our first experience we were back the next night for another dinner. The staff is incredibly kind and have a deep passion for food and service. Also, saying the food is amazing is just an... More

I've had dinner at Bruchetta the past two nights now (in a row). What an incredible experience. I had the Gnocchi with the truffle sauce, absolutely to die for. If you're only in Italy for a short time you must try it. I've been studying in Italy for two months now and I can say it's the best meal I've... More

We loved the service and the mixed of appetizer was great! Also the Florentine steak was nicely done since it has to be cooked outside and almost rare inside!

After about 10mins people started to enter slowly and within an hour the place was full We had the T bone steak on the first night and the steak was weighed in front of us before... More

Incredible food! We were trying to get away from touristy area and stumbled on this. Incredible salami and cheese tray. Also had incredible wine selection and about the only salads you can find in florence. The ingredients were incredibly fresh and servers are helpful with translating the menu.

Food was great, a little overpriced but as it was New Year's Eve in Florence, prices were pretty similar. We had a starter to share between 4 and then a pasta dish each (3 of us being vegetarian). I chose this place based on the range of veggie friendly dishes and the flavours were certainly great and everything was delicious,... More
