This unassuming street front restaurant has a few tables outside on the street, but little else to advertise the fabulous food! We were the largest group in the restaurant that night and they had us seated in the rear along the back wall. Service was rapid and we swiftly had wine and bread. Tables are set also with large bowls... More

Just off the center of Florence, this is one of the best choices for Bistec Fiorentina. Great atmosphere, and friendly staff. Don't be intimidated if there's a bit of a line to get in, it moves pretty quickly - just make sue you let the host know you're there when you arrive.

When I was in Florence in May of 2015 with some friends, we went walking to find a place to eat. We decided on this little place.....and boy are we glad we did. The service was so good and the waiter was fabulous. We ordered Steak Florentine. They don't ask how you want it cooked....I think they know the best... More

Overall, a splendid dining experience! While it may be a little pricey, the quantity and quality of the food, and the friendliness of the staff made it truly enjoyable!! Initially drank some wine and snacked on the fresh cut vegetables that adorned the table while our steak was prepared. We ordered 1.5 kilos (for the four of us) which turned... More

Wow what a place. Both my husband and i enjoyed our meals. From the antipasti to the mains. The decor is something to be seen. We loved the food so much that we are going back.

Ok, let's start by saying the menu comes only in Italian. They only serve steak rare, so if you don't like it that way pick somewhere else. Service is friendly and a bit on the pushy side but loved it.

This is one humongous steak! It was very tender and tasty. But don't expect to have it medium well or well done because they wont serve it that way. Other food were good as well. Place was nice and homy. Place is always full so better to book in advance. 👍

I heard of this place on trip advisor when reading reviews of our hotel. When we arrived in Florence we asked our hotel to book us a table for 9pm and it was only a 5 min walk from our hotel. If you love steak then you are in for a treat!! They first serve you a selection of breads... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
