Enjoyed a lovely meal at Osteria Vecchio Vicolo with family during our stay in Florence. The staff are very welcoming, the service prompt. All meals were tasty and of generous size. Highlights included the pasta with sausage, truffle and cream sauce, veal scallopini, chicken parmigiana, fettuccini ragu and the chopping board with various meats, cheeses and grilled vegetables. Well worth... More

It trully is a gem! My husband and I were looking for a place to eat and rest after a long day of exploring Florence galleries and ttractions. The restaurant is located away from main street and crowd. Unlike many other palces in Florence (Italy) they did not charge a table fee. So we decided to give it a try.... More

We got the T-bone steak to share (43 euros). Pretty comparable to what you'd get in a New York steak house. The homemade pasta first course was also excellent. Was very reasonably priced for the food you get. Highly recommended.

We stumbled across the restaurant at the last minute when looking for a place to eat lunch in Florence. Before going in we did do a quick check on Trip Advisor and the reviews looked positive. We were not disappointed; although simple in layout the staff are friendly and helpful and the menu is compromised of typical simple local cuisine.... More

This is one of those restaurants that you won't find in a city guide. We were hungry after just arriving to Florence by train. We checked out some restaurants on our way to the Piazza della Signora but we discarded several options. We were just passing by in front of this restaurant when we saw that it was crowded. All...

I saw the recommendation and came, really good experience! The spaghetti with lobster and prawns is amazing, best pasta I have ever taste so far in Italy, and the steak is also good and the potatos shocked me because they are awesome than I always eat in UK…really pleasure experience and I will come again!

If you want to have a break from eating just bread and pizza all the time then come here for a great steak. Very affordable too.
