Fantastic food and service!!

We found this by chance, and we are SO glad we did! Florence has so many turist traps, and I was so sad that all the food was so bad, but then we found this!! It saved my trip to Florence

The Restaurant inside looks lovely, we were greeted by happy friendly staff and seated. The night we visited, the restaurant wasn't full and was a bit quite, the lights were very dim and I did struggled to read... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, which was a short walk away. Fabulous food, great atmosphere in an intimate setting. Probably the best steak I had in Florence. It would have been 5 stars if the waiter hadnt been quite so good looking, my partner could barely speak coherently all night!!

Had dinner here and took some young family friends we had bumped into unexpectedly in Florence. Was very nice meal - the food was fresh, delicious and somewhat original. Was comfortable for relaxed conversation. Would recommend.

When we arrived in Florence, our room at Hotel De La Ville was not yet ready so we decided to get a late lunch. It was roughly 2pm. Since we are foodies we searched for a well reviewed restaurant nearby and found Il Barretto. They were about to close but welcomed us without any reservations. We started with the octopus... More

Atmosphere, food, service - all top quality. The kind of perfect fine dining experience which is just tad better than the average but without being pretentious.

Went for a weekday lunch, restaurant was quiet but we thought that both the food and service were excellent. We had the prawns and anchovies to start and the lobster pasta and sea bass for mains. Mostly based on the waiters recommendations and all were very good. We drank wine by the glass and all the servings were generous. This... More

What a fabulous restaurant. Three of our party ordered lobster pasta & the fourth had steak. Also had salad, caprese salad& asparagus with parmigiana. Homemade bread. Everything was delicious & service was impeccable. If your in Florence try it, it's well worth it.

We enjoyed our whole fish here, served tableside, as well as the bread basket of home made breads and our anchovy appetizer. David, our waiter, was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is upscale but considering all the competition in Florence we felt the prices here are high.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
