The first evening if Florence, not wanting to go far from the hotel we came across this Osteria, it was a warm night and had four empty seats outside. This is a family restaurant Father, Daughter & Son, daughter and son were waiting on. We had a couple of nice bottles of Chianti Rufino at 14 euros each. a selection... More

I was returning my rental car to the Avis location. I was hungry. Osteria Il Mostrino was across the street. Not expecting anything special I went in and ordered the steak. I so was blown away that I've kept their placemat for years to remind myself how much I enjoyed it.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel on our first night stay in Florence. It was a family run business and serve traditional Florentine cuisine. We did not try the Florentine steak (which was too raw for us) but we saw other table ordered that dish (look amazing). We tried the pasta and the tiramisu was quite good. The service... More

Ate here with family and friends twice during our stay in Florence. Good service on each occasion. Food good quality with a nice, alternative selection compared to other restaurants closer to the City centre catering just for tourists. So, no pizzas on the menu etc. We tried the Florentine steak at €48 for two which tasted great but had to... More

We wanted somewhere close to our hotel, where we could sit outside and this ticked all the boxes. Food was good, with a nice selection. It was busy when we went in and there were no complaining diners at all. Everyone seemed to enjoy there meals us included. Value was fair for Florence. Definately eat there again if wasn't so...

We were in a group and several of us had what we considered bad food for both first and second courses. It tasted as if someone had added some fine sand and the grit was not appealing. However, some in the group found the food good, thus the score of two. (Would have been zero if our experience were only... More

Shared a fantastic meal here on our first night in Florence following recommendation from our friendly hotel staff. Enjoyed some bruschetta to start with followed by spaghetti carbonara for me & lasagne for Mum. Very tasty, decent portion size (not too large), as well as a salad. Glass of house red wine & a coca cola & the whole meal... More

The concierge at our hotel suggested this restaurant as we wanted a nice meal, within walking distance. Pleasant, efficient service (even offered Japanese diners the menu in Japanese which we thought was a lovely touch). Good portion sizes; delicious food and fresh bread. We were seated around 8pm and within half an hour, the place was full. Best book during... More

This restaurant is open on a Sunday evening which is useful and also opens early. It is clean and well-decorated with pretty checked napkins. Few people are fooled into buying the expensive bottle of Barola on the tables at over 60 euros!!! Food was ok but nothing special but service quick and pleasant. For a quick meal this is fine...

Was initially distressed to find 2 large tourist (US) groups here, but the food was good, service attentive and atmosphere pleasant. The prices were mid level, but represented value for money.
