I visited this restaurant with friends following the recommendation of our hotel concierge and another visitor at the hotel. The recommendation was fantastic! The service was attentive, the food was delicious, the house wines were well above average quality and the ambience was perfect. The meal was also priced very reasonably. Well worth it.

Friends and I tried this restaurant based on a couple of recommendations from people at our hotel. It has recently changed management and is trying to foster a home kitchen style atmosphere with great success. The owner, chef and maitre d are all friends and are exceptionally attentive to each customer. The food is excellent and well priced and the ambience is just right. One of the best experiences of my Florence trip and highly recommend a visit.

This lovely restaurant was recommended by the host of our b&b. Damiano had only been the owner for one week at the time of our visit. We cannot say enough good things about our experience. The food was delicious, the atmosphere wonderful, and Damiano was gracious and attentive. We highly recommend Club Culinario Toscano "Osvaldo".

While in Bologna the week prior, our tour guide recommended that we visit this restaurant when in Florence. Amazing as he is (Alessandro Martini, Italian Days Tour, Bologna), he called and made us reservations. The dinner that ensued was.... incredible.

This is the type of place where you let them decide what you will eat for dinner. When we arrived, we sat down and settled in for a long, slow, Tuscan dinner. The owner/waiter/chef came by and asked us what we were in the mood for, what kind of wine we like, and if we where in a hurry. We responded steak, red, no.

We ended up getting an incredible steak Florentine, which is as tasty and beautiful as you have read. The steak is carved tableside and came with a side of beautifully roasted potatoes. He selected a beautiful bottle of wine to go with the steak. For dessert, had a delicate strawberry tiramisu. The owner (I wish I remembered his name) brought over a great dessert wine and two glasses. He said, "drink what you wish and I'll have the rest."

This was one of the pricer dinners we had while in Italy (I don't remember the exact price but I believe it was around €120). It was beautiful, and simple, and perfect. Exactly what I would expect out of a Tuscan dinner.

I've been going to this restaurant since 2007. The place is great for singles, couples, business or just for a nice dinner out with the girls. The atmosphere is intimate and the place even being in the center of Florence is not a touristic one. The cuisine??? O dear.. it's creative Tuscan one, cooked to perfection and presented in a way you also wanna eat the plate itself. They just changed the menu and it's heaven!!! Marco, the owner, is the one who will serve you with warmth and smile that will make you feel special and spoiled, which is a lot to meet someone who knows excellent customer service nowadays, although it feels more like you're friends with him and not his clients. Great selection of wines and creative desserts.
