This is more than an eating experience!

Every dish is pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. Incredible flavors! Beautifully presented. We decided on the prix fixe options and it was a great way to experience all of the dishes.

One of the best meals of my life. Incredible attention to detail and food inspired by art - a mix of Tuscan tradition with cutting edge technique and whimsy. Great and friendly service and eye-popping presentation and flavours. The poached egg yolk 'gnocchi' and the charcoal black risotto were especially memorable.

I had the pleasure to eat at il Santo Graal a few nights ago and it was one of the best meals I've ever had -- Italy or elsewhere. The staff is fantastic, patient, engaging and clearly cares about their food. We had 2 six course plates and added a few additional items. Each dish was modern, unique and delicious... More

from the outside it looks like many restaurant's in Florence but when you get inside and look at the taster menu your realise you are in for a treat. Great Italian menu with local products. Great wine choice.

I've only just realised that the position in the list of restaurants doesn't just depend on how good the place is but how many people visit and say it's good! Hence a local sandwich bar is placed higher as a dining experience than an outstanding restaurant.In future I must always explore down the lists and not just look at the... More

This is a modern take on traditional Tuscan cuisine, must go with an open mind as the descriptions may not appeal to everyone. I am continuously surprised by the innovative taste/texture combinations. I also love that they are small portions, which gives you the opportunity to taste several courses without feeling stuffed. This is a must for wine lovers, as... More

We gave several 5-star restaurant reviews on our Italy Trip, but Santo Graal stands out for its imagination, creativity and fun. It's hard to describe how refreshing it was to sit down to great italian food, with everything re-imagined. Definitely a must if you're in Florence. We experienced the same great service, great ambience and great wine as other local... More

Tired of pasta, pizza and the same old fare, and want to lose the crowds, try this place for a fabulous meal. This is my second review of Il Santo Graal in the last 6 months.. Five of us were there for dinner on Sunday, May 24th. The service was excellent, the meal and each course well explained. The wine... More

The place was recommended to us and unfortunately we accepted the recommendation at face value. The service was first class (if you have all night) and who needs the napkin folded in 10 different ways during the meal? Just give me some food for my $76 AUD - 3 teeny strips of octopus on a tablespoon of ??? for him,... More
