Great recommendation

Hotel staff recommended as we asked for something close by. Very happy with their suggestion. Staff very welcoming were expecting us, greeted us by name and made sure we were satisfied with our table. Food was very good.

It wasn't much to look at from the outside and I was in fact hesitant to eat here but my son cannot wait anymore. So we went inside and was pleasantly surprised by the attention of the staff. The food was really good also.

Ate here with two friends for dinner. Service was good, staff spoke good enough english to understand. I ordered the Florentine steak to which the hostess explained that it is charged on weight and could be 1.6kg but it was well worth the €72 i paid for it alone! Beautifully cooked! The other two friends ordered more sensible and hence... More

We had this dinner included in our package, when we went to see Andrea Brochelli. It was clear that the predefined menu was about save money for the restaurant. We had a tasteless risotto. And some meat that I would be embarrassed to serve. The so called homemade ice. Was not close to gelato on the street.

The Bistro was recommended by our hotel staff and was just a short walk away along the Arno River. Service was friendly, courteous and efficient. I had the Insalata Mista €8 and my spouse had the Maiale Arista €15 (pork with apples) both were very tasty. Along with a bottle of local red wine we took our time and watched... More

Loved the waiting staff and the very good wine. Blackboard with lunch and dinner specials shows good mix of menus and relaxed but efficient service left us feeling happy.

Advised that this restaurant was near our hotel so ideal for our first night after a long day travelling. We ordered pizza as we wanted something quick. They were excellent as was the service. My anchovies came on a separate plate with a dressing, a nice touch. We went again for a meal after a very long day's sightseeing opting... More

Lovely waiting staff, good food and pleasant surroundings. Ate there on three consecutive evenings once as a large group, then as a party of four and finally just me and my partner, could not fault the friendly helpful service or the excellent food, quite a varied choice. Can recommend it as the preferred place of eating for those staying at... More

This restaurant is part of The Grand Mediterrano which is next door. Service is definitely better here although not brilliant. Had to go and find waitress to pay for our meal after repeatedly asking for the bill. Eventually we were given the bill only because we made our way towards the door. Food was lovely.
