“Good for Sunday night meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2010

Our best meal at the Rotunda was on a Sunday night, opens earlier than most. Many Italian families there, good atmosphere and good food, trattoria style. Huge barn of place, bar and live music downstairs.

“Gem of a Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2009

This restaurant was recommended by the staff in our hotel. It is located about ten minutes west of Ponte Vecchio but well worth the walk. We visited in November so there were indoor tables only - Maybe outdoor tables in summer ?? The restaurant is on the first floor, above a downstairs bar, which was also worth a visit in its own right.
One thing to mention. Do not be put off from the outside. I would not say you should be, but it is when you go indoors you can feel the character. Very modern Italian and tastefully decorated. Clean and fresh. We were shown to a very nicely positioned table and made to feel extremely welcome. The waiter was professional and efficient. Also recommending a fantastic new 2009 table wine (not my normal choice) which at 8 Euro a bottle was exactly what you dream of having in a UK restaurant for about £18 - £20. The food, the atmosphere and the whole evening was fantastic, and at 40 Euro for two including Coffee and Grappa I found very reasonable

“Something different for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2009

WE had a wonderful meal at Rotonda then went downstairs to the Pub to listen to an Italian Rock and Roll band. It was a Great night. Our server and the manager were just wonderful. Enough attention without overdoing it. My daughter and her friends go here once a week while in Florence. Our last night of our trip was spent here. I got the special pizza. One of the best I had. My daughter got the steak and asparagus her favorite, my husband got the homemade pasta with red sauce and the ribs. He also loved his. The homemade bread melted in your mouth. This was a great find in Florence.
