So glad we found Armbando, ideal if staying west side of centre centre. Food was fresh, authentic and classy. Beautiful trattoria inside with picture ladended walls. Family run, lovely friendly service. Salads, Pastas and Tiramisu were all perfect. Extensive, and reasonably priced, wine list.

This restaurant is the essence of Tuscany. Grandma behind the scenes. Mum serves the customers and other family members helping. Food is great. Service is very personal. Ambiance is truly Tuscan. This is a must for every visitor to Florence.

This place is a little gem. We are inside which is lovely, the service was good, not rushed at all. The food was excellent, our party had pasta dishes all good and some the florentine steak which they said was one of the best steaks...they’ve ever had, cooked perfectly. If we come back to Florence we would come back hereMore

My husband & I discovered this very welcoming restaurant in May 1917. We returned every evening until our return home. Alice was charming and the staff could not have been more professional, more helpful, friendly and the food was sublime. We fell in love with...the area & post Covid we will be returning to the same hotel and to Trattoria Armando. We cannot wait.More

This place was full of locals when we visited. The...food was excellent and the service was just as good. Please go. You will not be be disappointed.More

A small restaurant - trattoria with very tasty and fresh Italian/toscan food. My husband took garlic soup, spaghetti with artichoke and tiramisu, I took buratta with grilled vegetables, pasta with duck sauce and apple pie. Everything was home made, we have really enjoyed the meal...and I recommend it very warmlyMore

We came here just by coincidence, since our hotel was close by, and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was really warm and the staff kind and welcoming. It seems that this small place is frequented by tourists and locals alike. We tried some Tuscan dishes...and the food was so good that we actually visited this trattoria again.More

I’ve been here with my dearest friend Francesca and we’ve got that excellent bistecca Fiorentina you can see in the picture. Any comment needed because the picture speaks itself. The steak was just excellent: soft and tasteful. Very good also the prosciutto crudo delicate scented...and rich in taste. Good also the side food like the deep fried potatoes (hand made) and the deep fried artichoke: lovely! I strongly recommend this trattoria also for the good wine you can get there. Thank you for the joy you’ve gave me!More
