This is, simply put, heaven for the meat lover. Dario Cecchini is the best possible ambassador of the world-famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and he makes sure that your meal at his butcher shop/restaurant will be an unforgettable experience. For a fixed price of €50 you will get some of the most delicious (and correctly cooked) meat you will ever have,... More

By far one of the coolest experiences in Italy... Make sure to book your reservations well in advance... It's definitely worth coming back to! The meat was some of the best I've ever had, and endless Chianti is definitely a plus! Come hungry, leave full for a week!

It's all about the meat! Large, communal dining tables. Unfortunately the folks we sat next to didn't speak English, and my Italian is pretty much non-existent, so it wasn't much of a discussion dinner. But, we all knew why we were here - the meat! The gentleman I sat next to had been there over 100 times! (he lives just... More

I was here 2 years ago at first, and this August again with 3 friends. Officina Della Bistecca is not a simple restaurant, in many ways less, but many ways more! Obsession of Dario is a local agriculture, his life is more than just make a typical restaurant. Now we choosed the lunch time for the 50 euros menu, because... More

Don't get me wrong. It is still a 5 star place, but the atmosphere is much more touristy than before. I guess it got too famous. Food is still magnificent! Prices are the same. Service is very good, but not exceptional as before. And, the biggest minus for me is that there is no Dario. Maybe we were there in... More

From the live jazz band, the antipasti and wine on the street to Dario's famous speech....very Disneyland atmosphere. And that's not a bad thing to me. As a foodie you will be happy here. Don't expect haute cuisine or even fine dining. But the whole experience is really cool and quite unique. And IMHO worth it to visit and eat... More

We absolutely loved this place - more steak than even the most keen steak lovers could eat, as well as tartare, raw veggies, hot beans, bread, jacket potatoes, all you could drink red wine, divine olive oil cake and liqueurs. There is certainly no shortage of food! The steak is incredible ... and make sure you save room for the... More

We went to dario after a "tip" from other people. We shouldn't have. What a terrible touristic moneymaking thing this is. Long tables, with only one type of wine and bread on the table. We were with 3 kids, when we asked if we could eat another thing than just the 50 euro dario meal, the answer was no. We... More

Officina Della Bistecca, Dario Doc and Mac Dario are alll basically the same chain based round the butcher. It's worth trying once - but be ready to be challenged. The challenges are many. All the courses are beef - and the three final roasts seemed just the same to me. There was no real veg. Just a shared bowl of... More
