I ate here without a reservation and was welcomed with open arms by a very colourful lady. I ordered a tagliatelle with Speck and Zucchini Flowers which was amazing. Relatively pricey, but quality ingredients and good cooking. €14 with €2 cover charge.

The lady barely spoke English, and we couldn't understand a word of the menu. Therefore we just ordered two pastas with pesto and tomatoe sauce. Each 10 and 12 euros. We didn't ask for water and bread but they gave us when we arrived and...More

In the too touristic dining panorama of Florence, this place is one nice exception. It's out of the beaten paths ( i.e. you're 30min walking from the very center), it's rustic and proposes simple food. But for someone living in other countries (like us these...More

Chef Andrea Siviero selects the typical products for his dishes in small farms of Tuscany (and not only). The menu of Riffaioli changes with the seasons and in a family atmosphere we can rediscover the traditional flavors of the traditional Italian dishes. Here you can also find: an evolving Wine List, homemade cakes, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. Reservations are recommended. Personalized dinners by reservation. Theme nights and tastings. Recommended to "Osterie d'Italia" SLOW FOOD and on many other guides.
