Amazing steak

Too tired to venture into the city centre we selected this restaurant that is deceptively spacious; they seem to be expanding along the block. The Bistecca Florentine we chose to share was sumptuous; only offered rare and full of flavour. Expensive yet worth it for the melt in the mouth qualities... read more

We went to this restaurant looking for that special romantic Italian meal, and were hugely dissapointed. I do realise they were busy, however to be spoken to like idiots is completely unacceptable. When we went in to check availability we were told ten minutes, so we went for a refreshing walk around the block and duly returned in ten minutes.... More

So glad we decided on dining here....GIANLUCA the 'Talking English Menu' greeted us warmly and suggested a great choice for us to eat. The tables was festooned with displays of fresh vegetables in the shape of vases of 'flowers' excellent decorations, but looked 'to good to eat', although I did start to nibble on the contents after I noticed the...

Totally traditional, totally beautiful, totally delicious. I went with the group, so I was able to try a bunch of different things… I don't really remember what they were, but I know everything was delicious. This is a great place for meat dishes especially, but the Ragu is also incredible. The fact that it is a little bit outside of... More

This place was recommended to me by a local as a favorite place for special occasions...came by and walked in to find a butcher carving a whole slab of beef..we were seated promptly at a nice little table with a bowl of raw veggies. The waiter said their specialty is the Bistecca for two and it would be a cardinal... More

Full of character, very friendly and deservedly popular,so worth getting your hotel to book a table as there is not much competition here north of the city. It is like a butchers shop when you walk in, make a note of the names of some of the meat cuts as the menu is entirly in Italian and the staff speak... More

We had a fantastic bistecca Florentino! You have to like it rare though, no getting Away from that! This place was recommended by a local. It's a bit out of the city but is in walking distance. Great atmosphere. If you have an apartment go to one of the markets and buy a bistecca. It's easy to cook at home.... More

We went with a big group of people and the food was truly amazing and so were the people! So funny and helpful. Very typical Tuscan restaurant, they bring you typical antipasti made of bruschetta, cheese and cured hams... And then of course, please try the meet! Oh, and don't forget to go to the bathroom! It may be shocking... More

An outstanding steak with perfect seasoning, excellent veg to accompany and good value house wine. The staff were entertaining and helpful. Would suggest booking since we turned up early and the place filled within half an hour of arriving. So good, we went twice and had steak tartare the second time with an upgrade to the 'queen of wines' which... More
