There is a reason that this small, family run restaurant is FULL when with locals when many tourist traps are begging for customers just nearby ... The food is local and GREAT, the prices reasonable, the service is family and treats you like family, the...wine list is solid and fairly priced, and clearly a mama somewhere made the nice, cake desserts. A must visit.More

Bye bye Jackson Hole, our previous best steak ever! Fagioli was number one on my list of places to eat and exceeded our high expectations. Really fantastic dinner. And their house montepulciano was also delish. Well done.

Although the menu was in Italian the waiter explained whole menu to us. The food was amazing and the Florence steak is must try. We will surely be back. Remember they only take cash. Thanks for great Florence dinner

If you are looking for a "locals" place that serves authentic traditional Florentine cuisine, Dell Fagioli is a must. The menu is only in Italian so if you are uncomfortable with that go to Trattoria Marione. The food here is the real thing. The staff...is helpful. The prices are reasonable. Bring Cash!More

12/28/19 dinner: Ristorante del fagioli Very authentic Tuscan food, service and atmosphere. Owner/waiter explained entire menu to us. Menu was handwritten in Italian. I had spinach salad, artichokes and boiled meat and veggies. One in our family had some type of meatballs. Can’t remember what...other two in our family had but it was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant. Reasonable prices. Do make reservations.More

We had both dinner and lunch at Del Fagioli this past week and enjoyed both times. The space is cozy and we felt very welcomed. The service was friendly and was good at explaining dishes and helping us select what to order. The pici pasta...was excellent, as was everything else! Prices were very reasonable, around USD 12 for pasta dishes/mains.More

Our best meal in Italy as much for the food as the kindness and patience of the owner, Antonio. Due to a booking error on our part, they didn’t have our reservation on their books. They were totally committed and turned other walk in customers...away. We were disappointed and ready to leave when Antonio told us declaratively, “Don’t worry, you will eat here tonight.” The food was a true quality experience in Tuscan food. They explained EVERY item on the menu. We started with two soups: the Ribolito and the Papa Di Pomodoro. Both fantastic and so unlike any soup I have had because of the added bread. I ate these soups with a fork. Try one or both as starters. Pasta was next and we had the Penne and Picci. One had a meat sauce and the other plain tomato sauce. Simple and pure in flavors. We ended with a 1.3 kilo steak shared 4 ways which was charred on the outside and still mooing on the inside. Delicious. We also had beans and potatoes which were delicious and not mooing at all. Desert was a slice of homemade custard torte and a slice of apple/pear torte. Everyone, starting with Antonio, was gracious, warm and patient even though they had to squeeze to let us in. All in all, our most memorable meal in a trip filled with good meals.More

Del Fagioli serves delicious no frills Tuscan Food in a lively atmosphere crowded with locals who know! Off the beaten path and cash only it is an excellent place to savor the best off Florentine cuisine. A true hidden gem. Make sure to book as...this place fills up and many get turned away...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Hi. Unfortunately I do not think they do take reservations. Best way, in my opinion, would be for you to call on them during the day, saying you would like to eat there, and arrange what time would be fine for both you and... More
