Having read some of the negative Trip advisor reviews I was slightly concerned , but nevertheless followed the recommendation we had been given . It's an old building , decorated with beautiful murals and modern furnishings - the setting works ! The restaurant is intimate with two seating areas , upstairs and downstairs . The upstairs gallery is more atmospheric... More

This is a very elegant, sophisticated restaurant with delicious food in a wonderful old building. The dishes are refined, moderate to small servings with a great deal of care and craft in the food. The service was impeccable from the complimentary prosecco and canapés to start, right thru to finish. Reasonably expensive - over $750 for 7 people, but with... More

My sister and father had eaten "the best meal of their lives" here back in 2002 (my sister is a chef, so this recommendation held weight). They insisted my husband and I eat a meal there on our honeymoon and get the tasting menu, and so we did. The atmosphere was intimate and serene, the prosecco they offered when we... More

Awful service and even worse food. Light lunch consisted of minute bowl of salad which took 30 minutes to prepare followed by a 'main course' of two bite size pieces of chicken and green beans fried in batter. We were told, upon complaining, that they had no fresh beans. We left! This place is one big tourist rip off and... More

Ate there recently as part of a birthday celebration. Took the tasting menu, which is 90€. Firstly was surprised that there was not a pre-selection of matched wines for the courses - they know what is coming and we didn't - but could only buy wine in a bottle - so had to choose just one for all courses. Then,... More

We recently dined at the Alle Murate on a Thursday night, which turned out to be a big plus for us. The restaurant was not crowded, and since we arrived for an early seating, we were able to be seated amidst the upstairs frescos of Dante and the 13th Century Florentine Guild of Judges. Talk about sublime! We selected Giovanna's... More

Nothing to say about the place, charming! Very little to say about the service too, attentive and professional. We liked the food although most items on the menu, beyond the fancy name, were in fact rather simple dishes although generally well prepared. For this reason, this place is far too expensive. Good wine list. We've had a good time.

The place really disappointed us. We arrived to dinner and were given free proseco. The glasses had actually got specks or dirt in them. It was then so difficult to get them to change the glasses. The food was also very miss than hit. The fish was over done and very chewy. The lamb was very salty and my colleague... More

Alle Murate offers a unique opportunity to dine in a 14th century palace with original frescoes. Meals start with Prosecco and a brief historical overview of the site. The menu is modern Italian with unique, tasty dishes and a few duds. Our server suggested an excellent and reasonably priced red Tuscan wine. Mixed reviews within our party of four about... More
