“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

A wonderful dinner in this busy osteria. A reservation is needed as they book out early. Great food and atmosphere and service. Locals love this place. Just off the Piazza Signoria right near the Gucci museo.

“Hidden gem with great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Food was devine. Everything was cooked to perfection leaving us a bit sad having found this little gem on our last night in Florence (would have loved to have gone in again to try another dish). Definitely try the dessert - the meringue was fabulous and apparently the best my wife has ever had.

“What is all the fuss about??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I visited Vini e Vecchi along with what seems like the rest of the population of Western Europe yesterday evening. Fortunately I had a reservation while almost everyone else didn't. The result was that every minute or so people would come in only to be turned around again. The place seems to be very popular iwth everyone with the exception of people who are trying to eat dinner there!

The food is absolutely fine. It is not great, but then prices are modest. It offers good home cooking at reasonable prices, but it has become the victim of the "Tripadvisor affect". Like myself, thousands of others are looking on TA for favoured restaurants and then finding them full and booked up for several weeks.

In an attempt to redress the imbalance, let me state once again that this place isn't great and I am baffled as to why it is so popular. It seems to be famous for being famous!

Ho hum

“Small but exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Like others have noted, this is an amazing restaurant. We booked by chance for the first night it reopened after 2 months for expansion. It is still tiny and now seats about 35 whereas a local told us it used to be about 15. It's cramped but very friendly. The food is amazing and the wine very reasonable. Go at 7.30 unless you want to be with the masses standing in the lane way waiting for a table. We let the waiter suggest meals for us and everything was great.
