Our hotel recommended the lovely Ristorante CAFAGGI. It was so good, we kept on going back for 3 nights. Three generations work in this family restaurant. They are definitely doing everything right, they have been open since 1922. Great service, great food, good wine. We will certainly go again.

Food is good, prices decent but the reception of the owners (unless you are a local) can be indifferent borderline rudeness. We go there when in florence only for the food and turn a blind eye to everything else. One of the son and his wife is really charming. So if they are not there it can be a hit... More

Great food, diverse menu. We had the traditional Florentine steak and it tops everything I've had in the US. The waiter was extremely helpful with the menu and reccomendations

Cafaggi is a short walk away from the buzz of the city, but is just terrific - grilled eggplant antipasto, pasta, and best of all, the bistecca florentina which is probably one of the best we have tried in the city! reasonably priced.

This was an amazing find on our first night in Florence. The service was great - very friendly and very accommodating to our lack of Italian language skills. This is not a typical tourist restaurant. I felt like we were at a local joint. The cheese ravioli and artichoke risotto were great and the lamb chops were incredibly. Both the... More

Absolutely great place. The service was excellent, and the food was really, really good! My friends and I had a great time and all were happy about our choice. I will definitely eat at this restaurant again when I'm in Florence next time. Recommended!

The best eggplant Parmesan I have tasted. The service was great, and the place had a nice family feel to it. The pana Cota dessert was excellent as well. One of the better meals we had in Italy. Highly recommended

The food was great, and the service was also. I had here the eggplant parmagiana I have searched my whole life for😊; far from the mushy tasteless stuff we get back home! So for that alone I give 5 stars This is a family run business (which we learned from our hosts who have known the family for many years),... More

The €20.00 per person set menu turned out to be excellent value. We both had different choices and enjoyed them. Friendly and helpful staff. The day we ate here, the majority of the customers were Italian.
