“Nice Food, friendly service, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 NEW

We were staying close by, so we had drinks, dinner and coffee here on different occasions. We especially like sitting out in the atmospheric Santa Croce piazza. The staff were friendly and helpful and quite quick. For our dinner, we shared a plate of good cold cuts to start with, and then one of us had pork cutlets and the other stuffed aubergine. Both were tasty and cooked perfectly -- the pork was moist. I wouldn't say this was "fine dining" but more a relaxed and reliable restaurant with a very good atmosphere.

“Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

My family came here for lunch and it was great! The food was absolutely fantastic, we ordered a cheese plater as an appetizer and it was so good! I had tuna pasta with black olives and the sauce was extraordinary.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was because their service wasn't that good, but it's worth it!

“a great meal at the very heat of Florence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

We have been having a meal at this restaurant while walking around key tourist attractions in Florence. IThe place has great old-fashioned Italian standards on the menu and they are fresh and simply tasty. Boccadama seem to have an amazing offer regarding wine and this might be their additional asset. In the main dining room they have this massive wall shelve system mainly with Italian wines from all over Italy with each region mentioned next to the bottles they show as available for tasting. We are not that much into wine especially when it is 30 degrees + outside so this time it was just mineral water and food. However, when it is a bot colder outside, this place could be an excellent venue for a meal with a glass of excellent Italian wine! We ordered bruschetta for a starter and vegetarian lasagne for the main. Both were fantastic and very nicely prepared with fresh herbs and typical Italian ingredients. Please note, this restaurant does not look very impressive from the outside so this might be a little bit misleading when you wlk by. However, when you enter, they do have a very nice dining space and it is all an air-con cooled which is a blessing when it's super hot outside. They also have graet food and they do not overcharge guests for drinks which is a big problem for tourists in Italy. They offer a fair deal and the food is simply great. We will definitely be back at Bocadama when we come back to Florence for sightseeing trip no 2. A & G

“5 star food with 2 star service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 NEW

When you eat at a restaurant the way you are treated has the same importance as the quality of the food, sometimes I even thing it's more important, because in the end when you thing about going to a place if don't like to go places you do not feel at ease.

The food was awesome, I wanted something else than pasta and the meat melted in my mouth. My wife and daughter had some past and they were delighted with it. The deserts were also awesome. The problem really was that when we finished the food, we wanted desert and before we asked that they given us the check, like was sending us away. Then I was for two deserts, they bring us only one with three forks, in the end again the check without asking us if we wanted coofee or something. We gave up paid and got the hell out of there.

“Fine Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 NEW

The restaurant is situated on the Piazza nearing the Basilica Santa Croce. It makes the dinner even better on the evening when the Piazza is lit, surrounded by the typical old buildings.
Waiters are very kind and care for all our little wishes with a warmth typical from Italy.
The authentic food is of excellent quality and provides good surprises (never tasted parmeggiano with honey before, but it is delicious). It results in a good price-quality ratio.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for those who planned to visit Firenze.
