This is a fun members club with food and live entertainment. 5 euros membeship good for a year. Show one is the visible kitchen watching the cooks as they prepare the local hearty dishes. There is a buffet and then the fun starts as the next dish is served by the cooks shouting out what it is and and every... More

We went to this as a group of ten people. We were in Florence for 12 days and thought we would use the "membership" to eat some meals there . You have to buy a membership to have the experience. We should have reconsidered but...We had a breakfast there that was good. We decided to go for dinner and it... More

Great food that just keeps coming. Pace yourself! We couldn't understand what most of the food was, but it didn't matter because it was all delicious! Plus, not knowing is half the fun! The night we were there, the show was a trio of musicians who were fantastic! They played all types of different music from around the world. They... More

Saw on TV and reviews were solid so we decided to try. Location was a bit off the beaten path for us, but as first time visitors to Florence our area knowledge was limited. You have to pay for 'membership' and meal so can be a pricey night out for a family but turned out to be one of our... More

We spent one of our evenings in Florence at Teatro del Sale and could not recommend it enough. The night consisted of a bombardment of different Tuscan / Italian dishes followed by a show - a local blues band this particular night.

Great food! But as expected my lack of Italian meant I couldn't understand the performance!! The atmosphere more than made up for it along with a large consumption of wine..

We were able to book this wonderful restaurant via our hotel on the day that we went. You need to arrive at about 7.10 to complete the form to become a member of the theatre (this is something to do with the licensing and costs €7) you then pay €30 for a 20 course taster meal, that is served as...

If you are looking for a different experience while staying in Florence, this is the place to go. I do not think many of the people taking the "typical tour bus tour" know of this place, however the "locals" do. The price includes dinner and show. The show venue varies. The food is actually quite good. Everything is in Italian.... More
