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.

We found this place while walking down a side street and were attracted by the charming atmosphere and noticed no cover charge mentioned on the menu displayed. We were greeted by friendly servers and enjoyed a scrumptious meal. My son especially enjoyed the ravioli with mushrooms & truffle oil. This place was more enjoyable than the restaurant in a piazza... More

We found this restaurant in January and we decided to come back again this trip. The food and service did not disappoint. We still loved the seafood risotto and this time we tried the 1kg florentine steak for 2 as well as the spaghetti with truffle. These were amazing as well. On our 2nd night, we had the steak again...

I didn't find anything special about this restaurant. Had the steak and it was good also the risotto. But I just found that the dishes lacked something in the presentation and that the ambiance was not quite what I had expected. I almost felt like we were rushed and that it was not very relaxing. There didn't seem to be... More

We visited two restaurants in the city centre where the food was really terrible, prices high, we were really disappointed. Then we found this Osteria Vecchio Vicolo and were amazed. We had dinner twice there. Food was excellent, even the house wine was of a very good quality. Can only recommend.

The pasta was excellent and if you get a 500kg florentine steak I would recommend sharing it, but that will be difficult, as the steak is fabulous! It was an amazing meal and I recommend it if you're looking for great service and great food!

Had a very nice meal here with my family. Great bruschetta and pasta. My steak was fine, but my daughter's was excellent. Good meal for the money.

We visited this place early evening for dinner. Two sitting areas were available for us, we chose the quiter one just on the right when entering the place - finally a good choice since the rest of the place filled up very quickly and it seemed very noisy in the main area. Good choice between pizzas and traditional italian and... More
