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.

My wife, 18-month-old daughter, and I stopped in this place for a relaxing dinner and we were very impressed. The service was superb (they greeted us with two glasses of cold sparkling wine and gave our baby some toys to play with), the food was very tasty and provided a good break from the mandatory pizza and pasta you'll be...

I was randomly roaming when I found this place and I thought let's try something new aside from pizzas and pastas. I had half a lobster with linguini and fresh tomatos and it was great. Very satisfying yet light. Before ordering I was welcomed with a small glass of sparkling wine. For dessert, I tried pears pastry with chocolate and... More

Starter was 3 kinds of smoked and thinly sliced fish. It was simple, unadulterated and delicious. For the main course I had the crab spaghetti. The sauce was good but there was too much of it and it seemed a little oily. If you're going to serve crab still in it's claws don't cover them in sauce- I can't see... More

Right after having dinner at the Cibreo, Lob's seemed a lot more than wonderful. We ordered warm seafood salad, which was well cooked. The second dish (forgot the name, but it's EU30/person) was wuite good, except the first lobster they gave us seemed really strange. There was absolutely no meat in t claws, and even for the tail, all of... More

Took us a while to find a real fish restaurant in Florence, stopping by nimerous trattorias and checking out menus for fish dishes. Lob's is it. Very conviniently located near all attractions, it has seating in and out. We ordered grilled seabass, grilled veggies and capresse salad. Fish was well prepared, tender and tasty. Grilled veggies were on a small... More

Great for fish, the food was excellent and the host was attentive. I am not a great wine buff and was pleased when our host walked me through the available wines. His recommended wine was excellent and inexpensive.

As Florence is more a meat city than fish, we searched out a good fish restaurant and this I found on trip advisor. It definitely met our expectations for a relaxed venue ( casual rather than formal dining) but great quality fish, superbly cooked. Great staff and with a glass of prosecco on arrival. Centrally located . Got our recommendation
