We were in Florence for four nights and wanted to try typical Florentine dishes. The food was excellent. We had ribollita, florentine white bean soup with pasta, and pasta pomodoro. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was terrific. The prices were not outrageous. This is a great restaurant for delicious Florentine food.

When visiting Firenze, I always stay at either the Hotel Executive or the Fenice Palace Hotel---just to be close to the Borgo Ognisanti---the street on which you will find my two favorite Florentine eateries: Il Mostrino and Il Profeta. I visited Il Mostrino the first week of October--with three friends---and I ate the same things I always do: Insalata di... More

If you want an authentic Florentine steak, away from the typical tourist traps, then this is the best place. We were delighted that we were able to dine on the early side (most restaurants open much later). The service was very professional. The house wine was excellent. Our appetizer was sort of like a pate, somewhat similar to chopped liver,... More

We ate here this week following a recommendation from our hotel . While it was ok, we would not rush back. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was fine ( I had a pasta dish and my husband had chicken ) but overall not very exciting and there are many better options .

Out looking for somewhere local to eat and we came across this lovely little osteria. It doesn't look as grand as some of the upmarket places further along the road but don't let that put you off. It's a homely family run restaurant and our waiter was the son who greeted us warmly and settled us at a table inside... 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...
