Guests are seated at marble-topped tables for six or eight. The menu features seasonal//local foods which tasted like they were prepared by an Italian grandmother. Most of the customers were locals.Very tasty and moderately priced choice.

Love the Bettola! There's always a crowd here and you need to share a table sometimes, but this only adds to its character. Good food but can be noisy and crowded inside.

We absolutely loved this restaurant... so much that we had to return more than once. As Americans, we of course wanted to do things our way by tasting every dish that we ordered. We had a leg of lamb & artichoke salad - of course with a pasta dish the first meal... but when we saw a group eating the... More

A solid trattoria in Oltrarno. Sit outside, and enjoy the friendly waiters, a good mix of Italians and tourists, very reasonable prices, a welcoming corner location.

This was recommended by lots of locals near our rental apartment in the Oltrano area of Florence far from the maddening tourist crowd. Despite the non-English menu; wait staff were very cordial & bilingual helping us to chose wisely: roasted veal, filet of beef, penne pasta and Vin rosso house @ €4 per person (very good value flavor). Incredible speedy... More

This place is where the locals eat. Great value, speedy service and shared tables! A Tuscan experience not to be missed. Make sure you make reservations as this is a most popular place!

We were recommended this restaurant at our hotel and were not disappointed. The food was really nice, I had risotto as starter and seasoned turkey. My wife has tomato soup and fried rabbit. The soup and risotto were really tasty, a massive clove of garlic in the soup assured it was seasoned well. The turkey could've used a touch less... More

AVB was full of single locals as well as some large groups and couples. They have communal seating which helps them move things along. House wine is €4 for as much as you like, and it was good! Also, they give you a full liter of water which was enough to get us through the meal. Outstanding prosciutto, hubs loved... More
