ZaZa is located at Piazza Mercato Centrale near the the central market. It's quite spacious inside and can also seat some 20 - 30 smokers outside in a heated tent. Menues are in Italian and English and offer typical and not so typical Italian dishes. I personally like truffels so I usually order... read more

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel. I had grilled chicken with rosemary potatoes, daughter had grilled sliced beef with rosemary potatoes, and husband had osso bucco. We had a great vino = La Braccesca 2012. Everything was excellent. We went to a different place the next night, looked at the menu and decided to go back to Za-Za and... More

The house wine has a very bad quality: almost a grape juice. Additionally, they have no minimal idea of how to serve wine with adequate glasses and water. About the food: I ordered a tagliateri and this pasta was very frustating (I could cook something mutch better in my house in less than 10 minutes). They also charged 2,50 euros... More

This place is Very touristy but the food is pretty good and reasonably priced. There is also no cover charge which you can sometimes get in the places near by.

We were sitting outside for a little lunch break. Lovely looking table and good food. It only felt a bit touristic from the outside, but maybe that's just Florence.

Our hostel host recommended us this restaurant so we came and have a try. Totally no way to regret. This restaurant has quite lot of seats, with nice music, relaxing atmosphere, and friendly servants. I ordered their mix vegetable soup and fettuccine with pesto. You can taste the perfect combination of garlic, basil, and pine nuts, the taste just melted... More

The place was crowded. The food was fair. Had much better food earlier in the day at Mario's next door. Great location to everything.

Spaghetti Marinara. I don't traditionally like spaghetti but I got a beautiful white fish in a marinara style dish. We went back the next day and I ordered the pasta again, my boyfriend ordered the dish too. We have the cookbook at home now. Will be back!
