“Fantastic food and highly innovative concept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

This place happened to be just down the street from where my wife and I were staying (which is a 10 to 15 walk out of town)

All I can say is the food was fantastic, the wine list extensive (and amazing value with many wines less than 20 Euro).

You order your food on an iPad which includes pictures of your meal and videos of the chef making it earlier in the day. The menu changes daily based on whatever high quality local produce is available.

Even if you are staying in the centre of town this place is well worth the walk / taxi ride!

Thanks a lot for your review! Our iPad menu represent an important innovation in the restaurant world: but for our concept it represent just an instrument to easy update the menu, wine and dessert list. The quality of the food and the service are still the keywords of success. Thanks again and have a lovely day! Stefano

“Sweet & Helpful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We arrived late on a Sunday evening, only a couple of other tables were still being served. Nevertheless, we were treated like royalty, with patient & friendly service. Ordering at 'Touch' is a novelty today, but it will probably be standard procedure in the near future: we were given a laptop which showed our menu options & offered user-friendly ways to choose our preferences. Our dinners arrived without undue waiting, and they were delicious. Great wine selection, too.

“Funky and modern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I had dinner here tonight. The food was modern Italian. For a starter, we had stuffed zucchini flowers, stuffed with a nice dry cheese. For entrees, we each had very nice pasta dishes, which were well proportioned. For desert, we had a fancy version of a lava cake with ice cream. Everything seemed made to order, and the pasta was fresh and light. The atmosphere was modern and funky. The service was excellent and personable. If you're looking for something that's not a "traditional trattoria," check this place out.

Thanks a lot for your fantastic review: we are very proud of your words, especially because you have understood the philosophy of our concept. Not the "traditional trattoria" means that we want to keep the original recipes, ingredients and passion for italian food, BUT in a modern style. And I hope everybody can see the passion we put in our job, in the service and in the way we prepare dishes.
Have a nice day, thanks again, Stefano

“Fine Florentine food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This restaurant is around 10 mins stroll away from Santa Croce, and is well worth the effort of getting away from the main Florentine sights.

The staff are so welcoming its worth it for that alone!

My wife and I ate there this evening and I can't recommend this place enough, the food quality is first class; presentation was excellent and the range of taste and flavour was stunning. It's great to choose your food from a menu presented on an I-pad too and each course has its own main page with lots of pictures and some video to help you choose.

We paid a similar bill for the two of us as what we paid in the number 1 restaurant in Greve earlier this week and the quality of our food and standard of service in Touch was significantly better.

A brilliant restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff - make the effort to walk a little way out of the very centre of the city, you will not be disappointed.
