This was our most expensive meal in Florence but I wouldn't call it our best. That should probably knock it down even more, but it was a pleasant evening in the end. We got a late start to looking for someplace to eat - not a bad thing in Italy - and almost thought this place might be closed as... More

The staff at Francesco Vini...especially the owner, went out of their way to make our visit one to remember! A small group of us visited for the night before our wedding, and were treated like royalty!! A private tour, complimentary pre dinner cocktails, and even an offer to use their ancient wine cellar for wedding photos the following day!! We... More

Amazing steak! Best I've ever had. Service was exceptional. And don't forget dessert, ice cream with Amaretto over the top, so delicious...

Fabio and Jodi and their staff make you feel like part of their family. The food options are extensive and, after sampling most, it is all fabulous! Excellent wine selection. It's a "don't miss" experience in Florence!

As we approached the Piazza Santa Croce the rain drove us into the nearest restaurant – with good fortune. This large popular establishment stretches between two streets with several rooms on stepped-up levels. The individual seating areas are smaller and the wait staff is attentive even considering the crowd of escapees from the weather. We had the very good thin... More

I had a vegetable terrine and OssoBuco, the stink of truffles was intoxicating (white truffles sauce sprinkled with black truffles), the meat is top quality, they offered me a sweet wine named VinSanto to dunk my biscotti in and I fell in love with this place. I'll come back tonight, and tomorrow maybe.

We stumbled across this place by accident - it's on a quiet street which is a nice change. The menu was limited which is a good thing, I always get suspicious of restaurants that have massive menus, how fresh can all the ingredients be? The food here was delicious, although the service was hit and miss

We went to this place to celebrate my wife's birthday, having had it recommended to us by a couple at the hotel we were staying.at. The first thing that impressed me was that the waiter remembered by name, though we had booked a table the night before we went. He was really excellent, and helped make it a night to... More

We went as a couple to Francescos from a day trip. We were on a Thompson Cruise the service was excellent and the food we both had pizza was certainly the best I have ever had the setting was near all of Florence's attractions. Would certainly return. Top restaurant.

Terrific food, especially the bistecca alla fiorentina. Friendly host and servers. Despite most people choosing to eat outside, the indoor atmosphere is actually better.
