“Great location and beautiful dining room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

This is a fine restaurant, but it was average as to service and food--and it was not the cheapest place in town. But, it is convenient and it has some nice history that you can read about.

“Save your money!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We ate here today, primarily to escape the rain and secondly as the view is great. Unfortunately this was the only positive feature for this restaurant. The food was very expensive for the low to average quality, small portions and the service was terrible. The main waiter was rude and unhelpful. Service was incredibly slow, despite only a handful of tables. Save your time and money and eat in any other place in Florence!

“Blown away by hospitality and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

My Fiancee and I are getting married in Tuscany April 2015, and the La Loggia is our preferred choice for reception. We were here for a meeting to discuss our plans and menu and after this they insisted we try their food to ensure we were happy with the quality.. My god how could we not be.. it was just amazing and fresh.

I had the Fiorentine Steak, what else, with side of roast potatoes, my fiancee opted for a pasta dish, as did her mum and dad (who were with us on this trip to see Florence for the first time etc)

My steak was just amazing, a HUGE slab of meat, cooked beautifully. The potatoes were cold, but i believe that was by design not cos they were left out :) The pasta dishes were so fresh and tasty (i am told, they didnt offer me anything to try myself but the huge grins on their faces suggested there was a reason they didnt want to share)

We had a lovely bottle of wine to go with the meal.. Not sure the name as the bottle was placed on a table away from us so as not to clutter the table.

After we'd enjoyed our meal we had a coffee before saying our good byes and wishing October was here already so we can do our menu tasting :)

Overall couldnt fault a thing.. the VIEW from the terrace is just 2nd to none.. it was amazing, even in the overcast day, which they apologised for :)

So cannot wait to go back and try again.

“A must see for the View and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

La Loggia restaurant is located in Piazzale Michelangelo, or I should say at the top of The Piazza.The Piazza has the most incredible view of all of Florence even higher than Fiesole,the summer escape for the wealthy Florentines..

The restaurant is lovely, with excellent service,a spectacular view and absolutely delicious food. My husband had the Pici cacio. I had Spaghetti carciofi. Both so good and we had Fagiolo Toscani, simple and elegant.

There is a copy of the famous David in the center of the Piazza, what a view he has.

“Over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We were recommended this Restaurant for New Years Eve, and we were slightly disappointed, the service, food and wine was average, the restaurant had no atmosphere whatsoever, especially for New Years Eve, however it does have wonderful views across Florence, maybe a lot better in Spring and Summer.
