Well, we all know that Firenze offers probably the best restaurant in Italy. La Canova di Gustavino is up to that standard. The menu is simple but yet very creative. I never knew I could have pasta with a mix of parmesan and dark chocolate! The wine list is impressive and the staff will do every effort for you to... More

This place is a surprisingly refreshing resto in Firenze. The owners apprently weren't afraid to take risks against the usual, tourist-trap screaming traditional Italian interiors look and yet haven't gone too far on the minimalizing effect. The interiors are warm, welcoming, homey, yet they lack the usual spider-net in the corners meets red-squared tableclothed wooden tables impression. They found the... More

We wandered into this little place and found absolutely delicious food! We had been traveling in Italy for about three weeks and were starting to get quite tired of Italian food but this place renewed our love of Italian cuisine.

Good quality food, solid service, great selection of wines (not only high end Brunellos), modern decor. That makes it a place worth finding and trying.

This restaurant/bar is much more casual than "its brother" Il Gustavinho, has only a couple of tables, surrounded by bottles of wine. The service is very friendly (Leo) and he makes the difference to provide customers a pleasant time.

This is what you come to Italy for!! I have been brought up in an Italian family and this is my first trip to Italy at an age (25) where I can appreciate the food wine and culture of the country and having two Italian nonnas I have some very good competition to compare with at home.

This was the perfect introduction to Florence for us. We had just checked into our Hotel and were recommended a few alternatives for Lunch. This place was nearest the hotel and we liked the look from the outside.We were not disappointed. A relaxing drink and some lovely Tuscan food prepared before us. We would happily go back there again.

We had just finished a walking tour of Florence and were tired and hungry. Our wonderful Florencetown guide Jessica told us there were several good restaurants on Via della Condotta, which is only a block or so off the Piazza della Signoria (Uffizi area). This place looked quiet, rustic, and fairly empty so we stepped in. At first we wondered... More
