Was on a tour and the guide recommended this location. Pro's: - Food is delicious and the chianti was amazing - Guide recommended this because its not a main strip and the prices are decent (he was right!) - Free Wifi (great when traveling) - Staff very friendly

Worst experience in Florence!! Tagliata - ordered medium rare - was done or better said dead! Second try was a little better, but bad quality of meat and bad cooked! But the worst thing was: we were asked to change table because they needed it for other guests (to put the tables together). 5 minutes later we were asked completely... More

We ate at this restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce for lunch today (7/11/14) and my wife had her pocket book stolen while we were sitting under the umbrellas at an interior table. We were a bit off guard while sitting eating and it was taken off the back of the chair. Not sure how it was done, but I wouldn't... More

We were staying close by, so we had drinks, dinner and coffee here on different occasions. We especially like sitting out in the atmospheric Santa Croce piazza. The staff were friendly and helpful and quite quick. For our dinner, we shared a plate of good cold cuts to start with, and then one of us had pork cutlets and the... More

My family came here for lunch and it was great! The food was absolutely fantastic, we ordered a cheese plater as an appetizer and it was so good! I had tuna pasta with black olives and the sauce was extraordinary. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was because their service wasn't that good, but it's worth... More

We have been having a meal at this restaurant while walking around key tourist attractions in Florence. IThe place has great old-fashioned Italian standards on the menu and they are fresh and simply tasty. Boccadama seem to have an amazing offer regarding wine and this might be their additional asset. In the main dining room they have this massive wall... More

When you eat at a restaurant the way you are treated has the same importance as the quality of the food, sometimes I even thing it's more important, because in the end when you thing about going to a place if don't like to go places you do not feel at ease. The food was awesome, I wanted something else... More

The restaurant is situated on the Piazza nearing the Basilica Santa Croce. It makes the dinner even better on the evening when the Piazza is lit, surrounded by the typical old buildings. Waiters are very kind and care for all our little wishes with a warmth typical from Italy. The authentic food is of excellent quality and provides good surprises... More

Came here because it was recommended in Rick Steves guidebook. Unfortunately, it didn't meet any expectations at all. The chicken liver crostini looked like poo on bread and tasted like dog food. The chicken salad was un-seasoned, not even under-seasonsed. The lasagna was fine, and the Spaghetti alla carbonara was basically Kraft dinner with pancetta bits. The service was slow... More

We enjoyed a beef stew and a lasagna for lunch. Nice house wine. Relaxing meal with service. Recommended local fare on a all square in front of beautiful church
