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.

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

Nice and small restaurant. Good quality food prepared in a pretty decent way. Unfortunately only big fishes for the grill when we were there, so even for 2 people it was not a viable option. Very good dessert from Gelateria Pizzo. Service below average, maybe they'd need 1 more person to serve. Wine choice.....forget it. They don't even know what... More
