Amazing menu, perfect service (Claudio), great wine, incredible food. Seafood was great- perfectly cooked on octopus; nicely done bruchetta with tomatoes and shrimp; perfectly cooked homemade spaghetti and tomato sauce. Everything served hot. Desert and cafe to round out a perfect meal. Creme brule and a complimentary lemon liquor mixes with lemon sorbet in a shot glass.

Interesting menu, and decor. Proseco, soup to warm the body. Rainy evening would not allow us to sit on the terrace. Needed a finger bowl after consuming my prawns.

Excellent staff, really nice and attentive to customers' needs and food quality is really excellent but my lord....please change your chef...you can't cook fish like that! No salt at all and overcooked pasta in Italy? Please don't do it....

We had lunch at this restaurant with 6 and 1 year-old kids. The staffs were very friendly. Right after we took seats they brought us a lot of toys not to make our kids bored. Seafood risotto was excellent and I think lobster is price worthy. If you are looking for a good seafood and also family friendly restaurant, I... More

Very close to our hotel so gave it a go. Bit pricey, but everywhere is expensive in Florence. Hubby had fish said it was ok but a bit overcooked. I had veggie option of grilled veg with grilled cheese, this looked awful, tasted not great and was so mean. I left feeling hungry. People having pasta seemed to be happier... More

This place was so good that we ate here twice during our visit to Florence. The food was excellent. Entrees we tried included grilled seafood, vongole, foiled seafood and pasta. All were expertly prepared and quite tasty. The service was second to none. All of the staff makes you feel welcome and as if you are the most important customer... More

Good location, very close to the city center. Friendly staff. Meager portions. Fish not very good. The hot dishes arrive cold and the dishes are moderately insipid. The cost is high compared to the quality of the fish and the scarcity of courses: for two people we ordered a glass of Falanghina wine, a bottle of water, an appetizer of... More

Central, good place. At arrival we first got an apperitiv, very suprising in a city fully packed of tourists. Mussels with spaghetti were good. Couldn't complain. Staff was very friendly. Prices ok.

Rustic atmosphere with Dean Martin crooning in the back ground when we were there. They served us prosecco as a free welcome drink and the standard bread/olive oil/balsamic. We wanted fish for dinner, so settled for this restaurant - Lobs Fish Restaurant. The grilled sea bass was fresh and the pasta was just perfect. The service was good.
