The atmosphere is fantastic. The dining room is small and intimate. The staff is terrific and very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was epic...probably the best gnocchi ever made on the planet, and the steak...wow! All of the other restaurants have a tall order to live up to with this being our first stop in Tuscany.

The service is excellent, very commited and welcoming. The carbonara was so rich, tasteful and delicious that I couldn't stop eating it even after I was beyond full. Rounded off by a perfect cappuccino: this place can kill you, in a good way.

I think I was expecting a little more since it got such excellent reviews....especially since this was our most expensive meal during our 2 week trip. We both ordered an appetizer and shared a pasta that the waiter raved about...frankly, I like my own homemade version better. The steak in walnuts in blue cheese sauce was excellent.

I saw reviews on tripadvisor for La Buchetta Cafe and put it on my list of restaurants to try out. I'm SO glad I did! I visited the restaurant for lunch one of my first days in Florence. It felt like a true Italian restaurant where the menu was in Italian and the owner explained the food to me personally.... More

The baked spinach was amazing and the mushroom and truffle pasta was one of the best I have ever had and I have eaten in Italian restaurants all over the world. The service was friendly and attentive. Feels like an owner run place. It was a tad noisy but to be expected in such a popular place.

We had lunch here. Very friendly staff. The food was good. Their House white wine was 6 euro/glass which I found quite expensive.

I can't speak highly enough of the quality of food and the friendliness of staff at this restaurant! The owner and the waiter were very helpful with our questions and gave wonderful recommendations. The pasta really stood out to us; the pici alla carbonara and the gnocchi in truffle sauce were absolutely delicious. We asked the owner to pick out... More

Saw tons of excellent reviews on here and thought the family was in for a treat. We ordered 3 steaks, all which came raw and the ravioli was just bad. Skip this place or tell them to actually cook their food.

Nice and helpful staff. Ask for suggestions and trust them, totally recommended. We had two 'antipasti' to share (I suggest the mix of mozzarellas). They cook the meat really well, as you like. If you don't ask they will serve you the meat middle done, with not a single drop of blood, really tasty. If you don't have any idea... More
