My husband and I were on our honeymoon and we went to Hostaria il Desco our first night in Florence, it was fantastic! My husband had the steak(bistecca) dinner (breads, steak, and potatoes) and cauliflower soup. I had buschetta and salmon/pesto pasta. Everything was perfect. The steak was one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. It arrives on a hot sizzling plate and can be warmed as eaten. The portions are huge and neither of us could finish our meals. it was reasonably priced as well (50 Euro) - not cheap, but significantly cheaper than other stops on our trip that didn't come close.
The ambiance was great and the waitress and waiter had no problem catering to some Americans who know very little Italian. This was one of the best meals so far on our Italy trip, we would go there again!
