Was told the location up in the hills of Florence was better quality and view....so the three of us paid 35 euros on the way up and 40 on the way back down. Dinner was probably the worst meal I've ever had. 130 euro for a flavorless steak for two, pasta with mushrooms, three salads, a bottle of house some... More

This rustic restaurant was very charming and quaint. The servers were very helpful and there was an fluent English waiter who recommended the spaghetti. We were not disappointed by his recommendation. It was spicy, hot, and very filling. The chocolate tart at the end of the meal definitely helped to finish off our experience. It tasted of dark chocolate, and... More

Visited 21-07-2014 I visited the Perseus restaurant with my Italian business colleague, he said he would treat me to a T Bone steak with a difference, well it certainly was different, he told me that the meat was from a special breed of cattle, I believe they are called Chianina Ox, and this adds to the whole experience. We placed... More

We had lunch at this place after recommendations from a barista, we were looking for something away from the tourist areas. We had bruschetta with tomato as a starter and pasta as main course. It all tasted really good, especially the bruschetta. Panna cotta and chocolate cake for dessert was ok, but nothing special.

We took a cab here at the recommendation of a few shop owners where we asked to be away from the typical tourist restaurants. We could not have been more happy with Perseus. Local Tuscan food that was fresh and yummy. Great bistecca fiorentina and nice table wine that you pay by consumption. Server was very friendly and helpful. Highly... More

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
