“Excellent Family Owned Business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

I cannot say enough great things about Francesco Vini. We frequented the location atBorgo de Greci 7 and loved this place. The food was always delecious and very reasonably priced. Several times I asked for an omlette that was not on the menu and they whipped me up a wonderful breakfast that was only ?7. This is very inexpensive for Florence. The family was so nice and the service was excellent. When we were leaving, they even went so far as to call a cab because our power was out. Go check it out, you will not be disappointed!

“Perfecto ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We had reservations but we were unable to make it on time. We still managed to be given a table. Perfecto!

The service was just excellent. We had the bistecca! It was huge and juicy. The seasoning just right. Grilled to perfection. We had a nice taglianini tartufo with pecorino cheese

What a wonderful dinner on our first night in Florence

“So happy to return to this gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

It was such a delight for my husband and I to return to this fantastic restaurant!

The owner, Fabio, was as welcoming as ever and made excellent suggestions for us--the chicken liver and sausage crostinis were to die for! Our steak done in a red wine reduction was scrumptious. My only complaint was that I could not finish it!

His wine selection for us, after questioning our likes and dislikes, was fabulous.

Don't miss this jewel, located near the Piazza di Santa Croce!

“Excellent, a great find in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This is a fantastic restaurant. It can be difficult in Florence to distringuish between tourist rip-off restaurants, and those that serve tourists great food at good prices. Francesco Vini is the better kind, and it's really very good. Tasty food, great wines, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. It's definitely worth a visit. If eating outside, the terrace at the back entrace (on Piazza dei Peruzzi, rather than Borgo Dei Greci) is highly recommended if you want somewhere slightly more secluded from the passing crowd.

“It's a 'Yes'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Honest decent lunchtime food and drinks, good service, and a great pavement location in a traffic-free cobbled street. Good for a decent value meal, and great for people-watching!
