Florence is normally famous for its "Bistecca fiorentina" (bloody Rump steak). Which is fantastic and delicious. Although after a few days in one of the most beautiful european capitals it can happen that you are starving for having a fresh fish... This is the moment you should choose the Fuor... read more

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at this upscale seafood restaurant in Florence. From the first course to the last the freshness of the fish, crab, lobster, etc were exceptional. Prepared in many different ways, from raw (better than most sushi places), in pasta and cooked in the traditional salt crust this meal was one to remember. Service... More

Alex and his team have made our visit to Fuor d'Acqua an outstanding food & service experience. We asked for a multi-course menu and enjoyed raw fish & seafood, followed by multiple warm dishes, pasta, and ultimately a branzino in salt crust which was beyond delicious. Paired with a great choice from their solid wine list, we had a great... More

We met a new friend in Florence who strongly recommended this restaurant for seafood and service. He made us a reservation and we were treated like regulars at this wonderful establishment. The food was exceptionally fresh, flavorful and uniquely prepared. Thank you, Franco, for pointing us toward and evening we will not forget.

Fuor d'aqua is a unusual Italian restaurant, if you love fresh fish this is your place! Sashimi quality raw fish is served in the most simple but creative way.. This has to be the most interesting restaurant in Firenze, the ambiance is wonderful, the service is outstanding, the attention to detail is second to none! Try this place...

We went with the suggested menu where you can tell the waiter which fish/seafood you like and it turned into spectacular 4 course feast! The suggested wine pairing was excellent as well. Price for 2 including wine, dessert and coffee was a very reasonable ? 165. Don't miss out!

My friend and I visited this place in the Christmas Eve by our hotel recommendation. Hotel Lungarno made the reservation for us and we went there it was amazing! First the service is impeccable, you went in looking at all the fresh catch of the day and we were quickly seated. They pour sparking wine to start you off, it... More

I can't understand the mixed reviews for this restaurant on TA. We were a party of 8 adults. The service was excellent and the food was terrific. The waiter made recommendations and we followed his suggestions directly.

Pros; Lovely setting. Great menu. Servers who speak English and/or italian. Centrally located near the Russian quarter Sounds great and it is. Cons; fish was too salt and dry. No more cons. Four de agua was lovely inside and gave us a wonderful meal.
