We gave this local spot a try based on a recommendation in the Rick Steves guide, and we were very pleased with the experience. We arrived right after noon and prior to the lunch rush, so our lack of a reservation wasn't an issue. It appeared that the restaurant catered to a nice mix of patrons, but it was weighted... More

This restaurant became our favorite place while in Florence. In our first visit we needed to wait but so glad we did. You will find simple food prepared with care for a very reasonable price. I have not had a better piece of pork anywhere. First night I had a grilled pork chop that was large, juicy and well seasoned.... More

Able to sneak in for a late dinner for 4 without reservations (after being turned away by several places!) and glad we were able to dine here. Good menu for food and wine. We each got something different and everyone enjoyed their meals. Definitely a local spot which is exactly what we were looking for. Solid meal for our first... More

We did our research on places with great reviews, and we were SO excited to try this spot! I even planned ahead for what I was going to order. I got the ribollita and the filet. Both were just average. I would be tempted to call it "forgettable" except I soon found it to be quite memorable when the ribollita... More

We had to queue both times we visited this restaurant, but do not let that put you off! It is worth the wait (the locals that come in after you may get seated first, but hey, they are their repeat customers) the food is fantastic, I highly recommend the beef steak, steamed veg and the house red wine but save...

We were told about this restaurant by the receptionist at the hotel. It is packed with locals and you have to book. The food was excellent and the waiters were friendly. It is a very busy restaurant but you are served genuine food.

Traditional and old-school, no surprises on their menu. Great deal on their house wine - 8 euro for 1 litre. We came on a recent Saturday just after 7pm and barely got a table. Tuscan comfort food just like you'd expect but also just not spectacular. However you won't go home hungry.

This was our third and last night in Florence. By far, it was the best meal we've had. The waitstaff was fantastic--so friendly and helpful with the Italian menu. Make a reservation--we had one, but some in front of us did not and were told a 30+ min wait, so they left. We were not rushed at all--it might well... More

We decided to go to Trattoria La Casalinga for dinner on our second night in Florence after a recommendation from a friend - I'm so glad we did as this was one of the best meals we had during our holiday in Italy! Not only was the food fantastic - I had one of the best fillet steaks I've ever... More
