This is the kind of place you want to love - “authentic” as the tourists love to say - but really dreadful food. When you live in Italy, you learn that Grandma’s cooking ain’t always that good. We ordered about 5 dishes, one worse than...More

This is a charming neighborhood restaurant that has been around since the 30s and is much beloved by regulars. It isn't a tourist restaurant, so if you are expecting a gorgeous 5-star ambiance or a food forward experience, this ain't it. This is a small...More

We went with a local friend. You have to ring a bell to get in. They kindly opened the door - and looked at us ... we mentioned our friend's name and were welcomed with a huge smile. It is a very old school place....More

This little hidden restaurant is a place that locals and people in the know visit often (it is on via del Pellegrino). It is a homely place where you eat food that is as close to homemade as possible, there are no frills, the menu...More

Recommended to us by our AirBnB host, this is a real local trattoria. Ring the bell to be granted entry and to be greeted in Italian. Little English is spoken here although you can easily get by with the staff. The menu is in Italian...More

My husband and I found this trattoria by virtue of our very kind concierge. We could not have been happier with our experience. Having lived in Florence for a few years in my early college years, this little "hole in the wall" ask some may...More

It is not the best of its kind. I mean, there are several "local" restaurants you can find in the area much better. Probably now the place is living its 15 minutes of glory after Bourdain's visit. The quality of the food is good, the...More

The quality of the food is ok, but the prices are certainly overblown. It doesn’t help when the waiters bring you a more expensive wine than what you ordered and try to make you pay for it. No english spoken here, so caution is advised!
