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.

We were here in summer 2013, and was quite surprised that there werent many patrons. But that's one of the bets part - we get to enjoy some peace and quiet while enjoying our meal. We were here to try the local favorites - Florentine Steak. And it was marvelous. It was my first time eating and I loved it... More

We have been eating at Il Mostrino each November now since 1994. I think it's been under its present management for about 10 years - and it never fails to be the best trattoria we have ever experienced in Italy. Our favourites are the minestrone and the lombatine di vitella, which we order every night! The boss, Mauro, is charming... More

Smaller intimate restaurant, beautiful inside and very comfortable. All the food was good. The grilled meats and the gnocchi were outstanding. Service was very good, friendly. We recommend this to all.

We walked down the street from the Westin Excelsior looking for a place to eat and happened upon this restaurant. I had pasta figioli and it was delicious, along with salad which was fine. My husband had the gnocchi and I tasted one. It was also great. He also had salsicia al fagioli which he said was wonderful. We would... More
