Stumbled across this fab restaurant and decided to try. From the start, nothing was too much trouble. Staff were friendly and made food and wine recommendations which were spot on! Our steaks were to die for and cut like butter!! All very reasonably priced for the outstanding quality we received. The free lemoncello at the end comes with a warning... More

The Restaurant was empty so we were critical if it is good. But we got very nice surprised . The pasta was perfect, and self made. We had Pasta Tagliatelle Cinghiale and Gnocci Pomodoro. Both perfect! A little expensive, but it worth the price totally! Full recommendation - go eat there - even when nobody sits there ! :)

We came across this restaurant on our first evening in Florence. I had the gnocchi with pesto and my husband had the pappardelle and wild boar. They were both amazing so we went back on the third night just so that I could have the pasta and wild boar. The big chunks of meat were succulent. The restaurant was very... More

We spent a week in Florence, and on our second night we visited Ristorante il Paiolo. We never went any where else. We were so spoiled. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere delightful and the service attentive and pleasant. We simply fell in love with the place. My boy, year 11, was excited and loved everything as so did I....

Authentic Italian at its best. I've been in town for a little and this has been the best so far. Don't even second guess this is the place to go

When we first came here, waitress gave us glasses of champagne for free and in every way he was really good and friendly. I've never eat so tasty risotto, and my sister and aunt also loved their foods! We decided, that restaurant is the place where we want to go eat our very last meal before we leave. Yum!

one of the staff gave us a card so we went along later for dinner. Great move as the food & service were excellent. Had the Tuscan cheese platter with honey to start (lovely) followed by ravioli dishes for both of us one with beetroot & the other nettle.

We dined with two teenagers with big appetites. The atmosphere was a little stuffy and we did not feel comfortable compressed into a tiny table better suited for 2. I think this would be more suitable for a romantic couples evening - the food was perfectly acceptable but not remarkable.

Description
Florentine restaurant in Florence since 1980.Tuscan Chef.traditional cuisine (great Fiorentina steak) but even lots of seasonal recepies with fresh fish and meat. vegetarian and gluten free menù is also available.very interesting proposals in the wine card :local producers and even organic wines to experience for a real "touch" about our land.good atmosphere and courtesy add something special to the food.Ristorante familiare con staff. Cucina fiorentina e creativa.Nel menù si avvicendano gli ingredienti stagionali,privilegiando i prodotti a "km0" e le piccole produzioni artigianali. Ottima la carne (compresa la famosa "fiorentina" a cuore nel filetto come da tradizione),il pescato fresco giornaliero e le verdure sempre fresche. Tutto cucinato con le erbe aromatiche e l'olo extravergine toscano.Tanti i vini in carta con particolare attenzione a piccole realtà territoriali.l'accoglienza è cortese e cordiale .

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
