We're not big beef eaters but read that a Florence specialty is bistecca alla Florence, so we decided to try it out. Read that this was one of the best restaurants for it, and thankfully it was walking distance from our hotel. Hostess was friendly, waitress was fast, but efficient, helpful and friendly. She made recommendations for us, we trusted... More

The waiter was friendly and helpful. We needed it because the menu was strange (to us.) We had beef stew which was excellent. Panna Cotta desert was good and the cheese dish too. We will go back soon.

I believe they are one of the best restaurants that serve Steak Florentine. The meat has excellent taste and they cook it just right. They have great wine too in excellent price. However, I have to say, service was bad. The waiters were not friendly nor trying to help you in English. But despite of the bad service, I would... More

Decided to come to Pisa and Florence for a mini break with the family. Florentine steak was one thing we were definitely going to order. We asked the hotel (near to Perseus) for recommendation and this place was suggested. After reading reviews, we were slightly concerned about the service as we were non Italian speaking tourists. Service was great, setting/decor... More

We went for the bistek fiorentina, the speciality of the restaurant and weren't disappointed. Made the mistake of ordering a starter as well but as the minimum steak size is 1.2kg didn't need it between the two of us. Streak was great but rare, as is the tradition. If you don't like rare steak don't order it. Otherwise it was... More

On business with a few colleagues who introduced me to this gem of a restaurant. We had the Steak Florentine which was sublime! Atmosphere was great and an all round hit with all who attended. 5/5!

The restaurant is wonderful. We got seating on the screened in patio which was comfortable and not as loud as the interior. My seat at the table was right next to the carving station, so I got a good look at the stunning bistecca fiorintina, even though I could not persuade my other dining companions to order it. Instead we... More

We had a fabulous meal and the main dish (T-Bone Steak) is a a spreciallity in Florence and was possibly the best steak i have ever had. The house wine is full, robust and lovely at is charged by the amount you drink and not the bottle. We had over 1/2 a litre and half bottle and were charged 4... More

I wish that I was one of those patrons who had a satisfying meal at Perseus and could write a glowing review. I expended a lot of time and effort searching for a restaurant that served great bistecca in Florence. The restaurant that I had originally booked actually was further from the center where we were staying, so I altered... More

I was in Florence and the hotel recommended me to have dinner there and I was not disappointed. They have the best meat that you can taste. A must place to eat, although a little bit expensive.
