We have been here twice and may go back yet again, because it is that good. Many restaurants in Florence offer mediocre food and service, but this place clearly is the exception. The staff is friendly and attentive, but the real star is the food. For dinner we had grilled seafood and steak, and both were excellent. We stopped for... More

We happened by this restaurant while walking around Florence in the day and decided to try it for dinner. Glad we did. We hada great salad and a pizza to share, along with the house red wine. All we're excellent, with plenty to eat and very friendly service. Also great value. Highly recommended.

My wife and I had an excellent meal here and the staff were very good at explaining the menu. Price was also good, it pays to stay away from the main square and try the more authentic restaurants

We really enjoyed our meals at the Osteria Vecchio Vicolo. We ate here twice, because we enjoyed it so much the first time. The staff is very friendly. If you're smart, you'd better make a reservation. We walked by in the afternoon and reserved a table for that evening. We were lucky, because it was really busy at night. We... More

We ate here twice. It is that good. Also it is incredibly good value for money. The service is efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere very cozy. We had the pasta, the pizza , the meat and everything was staggeringly good. These guys know how to make a simple margherita special. Droopy tip but crust still holding form is a... More

It is an average meal, the veal scallopini wasn't special, grill vegetable is dry. I won't go back again.

This is a must try restaurant when in Florence. Delicious home cooked meals, lots of choices and an overall welcoming atmosphere. All meals are made to order and with generous servings. Price is right and you won't be disappointed.

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
