Perseus is an institution in Florence for its steaks, although it's now very popular and gets swamped by clients almost every night. Prices are "decent", service is very good, food is "ok", meaning that you can get far better quality in other places around Florence but not for this price. Great for business dinners or friends's parties.

Four of us had a great experience, one roasted chicken, the other three shared the 3-person steak! It is cooked rare, so if you like well done steak, stay away! The steak cost us €80, so this is not a cheap dinner, but this is not expensive when compared with high end steak in the U.S. The menu was only... More

YES-- it lives up to the hype! If you love beef, this is THE place for the legendary bistecca fiorentina. You're on sacred ground here but you better like it rare cuz it's the only temperature you can get it. They won't hear of it any other way. We got the 1,3 kg size for 2.. More than plentiful for...

We had asked the owner of a little wine bar where we should go to eat the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina. He immediately replied "Perseus!" and picked up the phone to make us a reservation. We knew then we were in for a treat. When we arrived and told them "Rossano sent us" we were greeted like friends and led... More

My daughter and I were visiting Florence, Italy and wanted to try the steak we had heard was so good. Perseus was recommended. We were far from sorry. On the table when we were seated, was a raw vegetable bowl and house red wine. A flat cracker like bread was served next. It had been drizzled with olive oil and... More

Three of us dined at Perseus based on the recommendation of family in Rome. The restaurant is very traditional and it has a very good vibe! The problem is you go there for the famous T-Bone steak but they only serve it one way - to parties of 2 or more and RARE only. So for our group of 3... More

This is one of the better restaurants that we ate at in Florence while we were there for our Thanksgiving trip. It started off well and food was coming out at a steady pace and then towards the end of our meal it became harder to flag down our waiter to get the check. The food was quite delicious, it... More

Traditional place with the best steak in town. Very nice place with an outside terrace. Staff is very friendly. Meat is extremely good! A must if you like meat.

Fairly good restaurant. A bit overpriced I would say, the food was good though. Nice atmosphere. The staff dont speak much english though and the communication was difficult.
