We are normally a little leery of recommendations made by a hotel, but the concierge at the Bernini Palace hit it out of the park with this one! There are so many good restaurants in Florence, and more than a few bad ones, but Il Barretto was excellent on so many levels. Our server, Ilan was helpful, attentive, and cheerful,... More

My best friend and I ate dinner here the other night and the food was amazing! We both had fresh sea bass, roasted potatoes and sautéed spinach. For dessert, the most delicious Crepe Suzette. The atmosphere was wonderful and very charming! Our waitress was very friendly! Anyone traveling to Florence I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner or lunch.... More

We had a lovely meal here last night, il barretto has a very friendly and warm atmosphere! Waitress was very helpful and went through the menu in detail. Although not a wide selection of items on the menu, we chose fresh fish from a platter. It was very simple but none the less delicious! It was a nice departure from... More

This is the kind of restaurant i love to find on holiday. The kind of place that the locals are queuing for, where everyone is greeted with a warm welcome (regulars get kisses). We went by this restaurant a few times as we loved the street its on and ate at two other amazing places just up the street. Every... More

We loved the food in this restaurant, everything was beautifully prepared and presented, from the first courses such as tuna tartare, platters of cheese, baked eggplant etc, to the fish we ordered and the desserts. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. Our only gripe was the slightly misleading pricing such as, if you wanted say, sea bass, the price was... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere that welcomes people of all ages. The food is very good, especially the scorpion fish we ordered, which was exceptional. The pasta my guest ordered was over salted for her taste, although many would have been of this opinion. As for the wine list, I found it to be limited. The food was brought... More

We dined at Il Barreto on the advise of the front desk of our hotel. This was great advice as we had a great meal! The Florentine t-bone was one of the top 5 steaks I have eaten anywhere. The service was very good and the atmosphere was very enjoyable (quiet, elegant, romantic). The meal was expensive, but half of... More
