We came across Il Desco purely by chance as we were travelling around Firenze, and it was one of the highlights of our time in here.
The young owner/proprietor was instantly likeable, friendly and very knowledgeable.
We paid 15 euros each for three wines that he selected and a platter of local produce that was carefully selected to accompany each wine. The wines were beautiful and all carefully served at the correct temperature and the food was delicious, again some of the best we tried in Firenze.
This was the best wine tasting experience I have been to and made all the better by the owner's knowledge and insight into both the food and wine selection. All of this was managed without being in any-way over-bearing or trying to sell us costly extras, which was very refreshing.
Il Desco was one of our personal high-lights in this wonderful city and a model example of how to create something special, with a local feel and bags of style. There was nothing cheap or touristy about any part of this establishment.
I would recommend the wine tasting and the food here and this gem in the Florence crown.
