They definitely favour locals. We came in early and was given a seat opposite the kitchen in an empty restaurant! The hostess was rude and unattentive - compared to other high end restaurants in Florence the quality of the food wasn't good enough for the price. Never again.

My hotel (st regis) recommended Barretto and it was a great suggestion. The service here was amazing. I ordered a bottle of Tignanello and the server actually introduced me to a lower priced better wine which was fanstastic. I wish I could remember the name. It was an excellent meal and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone... More

Noticed this adorable restaurant walking along Via Parione on our way back to our vacation apartment. The next night we made a reservation. An attractive woman greeted us and asked which table we would prefer, a courtesy I found unusually appealing. It turns out this attractive woman named Elam waits on all the tables at Il Barretto. Presented with the... More

Our hotel recommended Il Barretto and it did not disappoint! We arrived for an early dinner and were given our choice of table. Ilan, our hostess for the evening, was beyond gracious and attentive. My steak dinner literally melted in my mouth...tender, beyond flavorful and savory. Although the beauty of this restaurant is a big part of the enjoyment, the... More

A disclaimer before I start: when I think of a good steak, I think of the Dust Trail in Denver, Las Lilas in Buenos Aires, or prime rib at Harris Ranch inn in California. Unfortunately after a week in Italy and several tries I have found Italian beef lacks flavor. On the other hand, I find pork in all forms... More

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
