Some fellow travelers told my wife and I about Trattoria La Casalinga and more specifically about the incredible Florentine steak that they had at Casalinga. We went to Casalinga specifically for that purpose. We made reservations which, as so many other reviewers have noted, are a must. We were seated on time and the service was excellent. When we asked about their steak the waiter said that their standard cut is about 1 kilo (approximately 2.2 lbs.). We told him that we didn't think that we could share that large of a cut. He went into the kitchen to see what he had and came back and told us that they had a steak that was about 700 grams so that's what we had. It was our first visit to Florence and we hadn't yet had a steak. We knew that Florence was famous for its thick-cut steaks and after going to Casalinga we can see why. The meat was delicious and it was done to perfection! In addition to the great food the atmosphere at Casalinga, while quite bustling, has a great feel and, as already noted, the service is excellent.
