Bar seating only at this great small restaurant. Food was superb, lovely selection of wines by the glass. Informal. Highly recommended.

Zen is a tiny place with a modern flair. Run by a mother and son, the food is weirdly imaginative and traditional. You sit at a high bar and are served from the other side reaching up to help deliver the plates. The flavors are without peer without peerless pricing. The setting is most comfortable. The staff is friendly. And... More

Zeb is incredible and we ate there 2 times during our 4-day stay. Worth every penny. We discovered Zeb on a site like this after checking into our hotel and starving! It was just around the corner from Hotel Silla and we ducked in after only being in Florence for about an hour. The place is small - only seats... More

This is phenomenal food at an incredible price created and served by people that clearly take great pride in their food. We didn't draw the same conclusions about the friendliness of service as other reviewers have but I can see how you might think things are a little cold; it didn't feel like that to us. Rather, service was to... More

I was excited about going to Zeb, I read in Viamichelin about the restaurant plus good comments in TripAdvisor. I am a foodie not just because I like to eat but also to cook. I order pasta and meat balls. The pasta with Ricotta was not good at all and the meat balls where good but not great. But a... More

The food is excellent, really high level cooking that you will savor and remember for a long time. However the restaurant has no tables so you sit at a bar, which is fine if you are 2 people but makes it difficult to socialize if you are more than 2. The owner Alberto was not very friendly to us, but... More

A small space with seats around a central counter. Zeb himself taking orders. This was the best dining experience we have had in our 12 days so far in Italy. Our shared pasta with truffles was divine! Our entrees of mozzarella with truffles and boar stew were amazing. The people next to us made a second reservation on the spot... More

Lucky to get a free bar stool ( no tables here) we were surprised at this 'always-packed' Gastronomia that no printed menu was forthcoming , but happy with fine wine recommendations& the laid back, friendly service nonetheless . We three all ordered pasta primo courses.. But the two with truffles were marred by the over-use of the dreaded truffle oil...... More

Zeb's is located in the San Niccolo neighborhood across the Arno in a much less tourist crowded area, however it is fun to follow along with the locals. It is usually not possible to get in without a reservation as there is only 24 seats around the work center in the restaurant. Seating is bar seating, no tables. The menu... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
