If you're hungry and desperate, this place may pass. Although there were plenty of tables in front, we were seated in the back near the toilets, where the kitchen was located. My wife had a chicken leg, and I can't even remember what I had, it was so mediocre. Walk the extra five blocks if necessary to find some place... More

This was our favorite meal in Florence. The steak was cooked perfectly and the places was jammed with locals. We should have come back a second time and didn't, shame on us

Definitely a place worth visiting a second, or even third time. We initially only ordered 500g of the florentina steak, only to order 2 more times since it's so good (and not so pricy) other dishes are equally good. Don't worry so much about sharing table with other people, you won't have to talk to them if you don't want... More

Well, of course, this is not the first time we have visited the fabulous Trattoria le Mossacce. If you are lucky enough to enjoy their food, it's just great. Because seating is limited, often you enjoy a conversation with other customers. This is my favourite restaurant in Florence.

After 2 weeks of lots of pasta and pizza travelling around Italy a home style meal of steak was what we were after. As soon as we sat down we should have stood back up and walked out. We were seated with a table of elder men when there were other tables free. One of us ordered the veal involtini... More

Tiny spot in the center of town filled with Italians (which is something you don't always see!). Prices are great, the food is good and the service is friendly and quick. The seating can be communal but that adds to the character of the place.

I cam across this by chance and it is an L shaped trattoria used by the locals. Seating is mainly at long tables so you must be prepared to share - this is not for a romantic intimate dinner. But if you want atmosphere, good food and at good value then this may be it - but please read on!... More

This place is so Firenzic. The food is just fabulous. Their portions are small and very very reasonably priced so you can order more dishes. We were four and we ordered 8 dishes plus house wine so that we got to taste many dishes. Osso bucco, Bistecca cuts are huge, gnochi, mozarella cheese and tomatoes salad, seafood risotto was to...

14 euro menu: Panzanella, Chicken Salad, Side, Water. The panzanella was fresh (although I like to add black olives in mine). They had a good chicken salad, too. Zucchini side dish (can't go wrong). The place is a bit loud, but it's a good quick lunch in a convenient location.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
