We went with some friends that knew already the restaurant. It's a local Italian restaurant, away from the tourists. Nice and friendly atmosphere and great fishfood.

Slightly off the beaten track in Campo di Marte near the football stadium but worth a visit. Go for the mixed antipasti for two. Lots of little dishes that just keep coming, each one delicious. Followed by grilled octopus and sword fish. Both cooked to perfection. Unfortunately there was no room for dessert so we'll just have to go back... More

We had a very nice dinner with excellent food and delicious wine. Dishes are quite big, so one plate per person can be sufficient for a good meal. Reasonable price.

Everything we had here was really delicious. The prices are a bit high but we don't mind if the quality is there.

We were staying in the rooms upstairs, therefore location was very convenient, but we would certainly go out of our way to dine there when we are next in Florence. The staff were absolutely excellent and nothing was a problem. We enjoyed some of the freshest seafood available. My wife and son agreed to finally try a variety of different... More

Oh yes ! I really had a great dinner in the Povero Pesce restaurant in Florence. I have been invited there by some friends and upon their suggestion we started with a big plate of fried "sardine", what is supposed to be a "poor" fish: it was really good, tasty, a gentle fish taste. And one thing to notice was... More

Small intimate restaurant with a seafood menu. Langostine Gnoci great. I could have tried to eat another helping but I had ordered fish in lemon butter equally good. My wife had Prawns and grilled seasonal vegetables she loved every mouthful. Yes we would go back. Tried somewhere else on another night, only because we could not get a table before... More
