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.

Went here with my family and had a magnificent home cooked style meal in a truly Italian environment. Thought the loud banging noises were weird until I realised they were cutting through the bone of aged meat for my bistecca order! We were the only tourists there and the place was quaint and so so tasty. My daughter couldn't believe... More

My wife and I had lunch here several times back in the early 80's and early 90's, and le Mossacce never disappointed us. This time has been no different: great traditional decor, friendly staff,great value for money, and - the main thing - superb traditional tuscan cuisine. We shared an antipasto of mixed cured meats, delicious, followed by ribollita, the... More

I sought out this trattoria after watching the PBS show I'll Have What Phil's Having. I was expecting wonderful food but was surprised at the mediocre quality of the food. The place is tiny and filled with locals so I was expecting great food. What we got was just OK. The osso buco was tough. Had a better meal a... More

This place is a little hard to find. Small facade, app. 8 tables and 4 waiters. The crowd is Italian and the food is basic and of good quality, served quickly, Italian style. We had veal with roast potatoes for lunch with a glass of wine and truly enjoyed the atmosphere.

Thank Nordboen

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.
