After eating only Italian food for a month, visiting House of Sizzle was a refreshing homely experience for us. The cheese quesadillas were delicious and very reasonably priced. My friends thoroughly enjoyed their burgers, and the value was great. The service was quick and efficient, despite a full house. Would highly recommend for those who want a more American meal.

We were in Florence for 3 days and ate at this place for dinner twice. After being in Italy about a week by this time my husband and I were just looking for some great food that was more like home and some beers. This place was perfect for that.

We were in Italy for 2 weeks and wandering the streets found the House of Sizzle. Clean when walking in and the food was great. We had the mixed grill. After 4 days in Rome and not hearing your native language often, it was comforting to hear lots of people speaking english. The beers were cold, and the food was... More

I'll be honest, we've gone completely native during our 3 month visit to Italy. Eat well, nap in the afternoon and go to bed late. One thing I find difficult to be without is the NFL though .
