This was a great find a little out of the way in Firenze. The servers were very attentive and I loved all the little things they did. They would roll up your napkin every time you left your seat. They repositioned the cutlery mat so it faced the right way up. The presentation of the food was beautiful. The taste... More

We found this restaurant by chance on Via Roma while walking from the apartment we were renting to the Boboli Gardens. We decided we would give it a try that evening and went there w/o a reservation around 8 p.m. on that Monday night. This restaurant leaves nothing to chance. The food, the presentation, the décor, the service and the... More

We were staying across the street from this restaurant and decided to try it on our last night in Florence. They offer two five-course tasting menus at 40 euros but the items are also available a la carte. This was totally different than any other meal I had in Italy. Portions are not large but are so packed with flavor... More

We have been fortunate to visit Florence and other places in Italy several times over the past few years, and have eaten in many restaurants. A few experiences were not good, the majority were very good, and a handful were exceptional. Il Santo Graal falls into the last category - it is the only restaurant that we have dined at... More

We enjoyed a quick dinner tonight at Santo Graal. It was quite different from what we initially expected but surprisingly good. I especially loved the "molecular" version of the traditional panzanella I'll surely go back and taste more dishes.

I went to Italy to visit my family last year. I did also a travel From Venice to Pompey, visiting many important cities such us Florence. This restaurant was a casual discover and it is one of the best meals I had ever.

Wow! What a fantastic atmosphere that met us in this restaurant! Like nothing we've ever experienced in Italy. And that should tell you a little something about this restaurant. The waiter was so interesting, well educated and passionate on what we were about to eat, honestly caring about our well-being. And the wine he picked for us was excellent. He... More

My wife and I wanted something special to celebrate our first anniversary. Great ambiance and the service was excellent. We had a late dinner so the individual courses were perfect portions. But the tasting menu was tempting, and for the price is a great deal. Great flavors from the roasted chicken, and the spaghetti surprisingly went very well with the... More
