We had a recommendation from our Airbnb host! It's a casual spot for lunch or dinner but the food is just delicious! So amazingly fresh and delicious! I had the spaghetti with burrata - I'm still dreaming about it! It was a great atmosphere with the owner singing along. This place had incredible food for incredible value! We stopped here... More

We went there for dinner and ate a complete meal beginning from the appetizer, passing through the first course (very good spaghetti with clams) and then an extremely tender and tasty "bistecca alla fiorentina" (1 kilo t-bone steak)with oven coocked potatoes. We also tried two desserts, both superbe. We drank wine and finished with a good grappa. The staff is... More

The first thing you'll notice about this place is the ever-jolly owner. He sings a lot and he seems to have a song for each course and even for the bill. The jolly atmosphere sends you in a good mood instantly. In fact, we loved it so much that it was the only place in Florence we ate at during... More

Osteria dei Pazzi is a very nice place that we happened to stumble upon on our first evening in Florence. We got the last available table, which seems to have been a case of exceptional luck. While we were eating, several people came, saw that the place was full, and then came back a little later to check if *maybe*... More

Holidays Sept. 2015! My English is not as good as yours ;)! We chose Osteria dei Pazzi for our last Holi-Day Diner xD. Osteria dei Pazzi is a good bet, because in my opinion it was not that famous to all the sightseers in la bella citta firenze. First of all, the Restaurant seems authentic and lovely. The service was... More

What an excellent experience, from the helpful staff (they squeezed us in without a reservation, then helped us figure out the menu and patiently explain what "primi piatti" means) to the fantastic food (the garlicky pasta alle vongole!). The singing owner was the cherry on the cake.

This restaurant was recommended by our host at the de Bench B&B and, like everything else, he did not let us down. Great meal, including a fantastic steak florentine, in an authentic local restaurant. The menu is only in Italian but one of the team happily translated for us. Good value with the added bonus of an owner who clearly... More

If you like to spend an evening in an Italian Restaurant and not in a Pizzeria it is the place to go. The Food is excellent to a very fair Price. for low Budget, they offer a Quality menue (16€). I had the T-bone Steak Florence style - perfectly prepared. Thank to the Team!

This place was absolutely delicious! My husband and I had spaghetti bolognese, carpaccio with a truffle sauce, a steak dish covered in bits of lard so fine they looked like chopped onion at first, and ravioli stuffed with ricotta in a butter and sage sauce. All amazing! I have to emphasize, however, that the menu is only in Italian, so... More

My wife and I found Pazzi after the restaurant recommended by our hotel was full. Very local flavor with traditional Tuscan menu. We loved the food. The owner was singing. A local family was celebrating a birthday. Some guys came in later to kick off a bachelor party. And a group of young couples showed up at 9:30 for dinner.... More
