All meals and the service were superb. We ordered the tartare de manzo, the Nordica salad and the seafood griglia. The house wine is just right. And then the chocolate crostata. You get good attention and friendly smiles (in Italy!!) from your waiters and Paolo, the owner, comes to check if everything is ok a couple of times. Everyone is... More

We ate the Ristorante Pizzeria Il Clarinetto on the recommendation of our hotel; San Gallo Palace and the meals and service were all excellent. The young man and his wife were very nice people. From San Gallo Palace its an easy 10 minute walk. The meals and service were so excellent that we had all three evening meals here. This... More

We went in search of good food at a local place and found it at Il Clarinetto. Even our picky 8 year old son enjoyed it. We had pizza , insalata caprese and pasta. All were good and the service was friendly and efficient.

If you are on a vacation and want every meal to be special, I would pass on this place. Just plain old mediocre. Local families do eat here, that is one plus.

I went alone on a Friday evening. Il Clarinetto had been recommended by the owner of my nearby hotel. A real local restaurant - no tourists that evening - but it was full before 8pm. I ate the best sea bass I have had in years - for Euros 14.00! I couldn't believe it. Very good service - the waiter... More

Went here for dinner last night. Outside it is unpretentious but inside great atmosphere. The food was wonderful. We had local specialities from an extensive menu. Prices were reasonable and the local wines excellent. They had a very extensive dessert menu too. The cheesecake made with marscapone was to die for. Would certainly return

My husband and I forgot to make a booking on a busy Friday night during our fabulous stay in Florence so our hotel suggested Clarinettos as it was just a short walk from our hotel.....It was dreadful. 1. The pasta was not fresh 2. My spaghetti alla vongole was so salty I literally could not eat it 3. We asked... More
