“Back again, and again, and again...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Le Volpi is a wild card-great on a date, entertaining for an aperitivo with friends, cozy for a bite alone. The multilingual staff is friendly, competent and attentive-they'll help you with suggestions and chat with you as little or as much as you wish. It's a must with foreign friends, a welcome ice-breaker with clients: the wine list is varied, but approachable by all, the food flavorful and particular, without being pretentious. The price is right for in-house dining and for take away bottles. Whenever you are in Florence, do stop and smell the wine!

“Truffle sausage with melted cheese is heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We went to this petit bistro for some wine but ended up having a full lunch there and taking a bottle back to the hotel. The lady recommended a plate of mixed cheese/cold cuts and truffle sausage + melted cheese on the bread to go with our wine. I think they made every food out of the two small ovens behind the bar which is absolutely amazing. Staff are super friendly and prices are very reasonable. Will def come back for truffle sausage & melted cheese.

“Little hidden gem, 50 yards South of Ponteveccio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Recommended this by a 'Florence Hot Spot' handout and was not disappointed. Simple Tomato, Mozarella, Basil and Zolive Okl salad with a quite sumptuous glass of Pinot Grigot was a wonderful lunchtime snack. Service was speedy and very friendly. Restaurant was quiet, especially for a Sunday. Definitely put in your 'to visit on Firenze' list. MM

“Out of the way Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Le Volpi E L 'Ueva was recommended by our guide Angelo (review to follow) and what a find it turned out to be, a short step from the tourist chaos of the Ponte Vecchico, you enter this oasis of calm. Apart from being outstanding value for money the wine list is second to none. The owners search far and wide for the best wines, from those hard to find wines that make you try and look for them once you get back home. My particular favourite was the Tuscan Viognier, delicious. Although not a fully fledged restaurant the food is not bad either with locally sourced cheeses, meats and breads which are an ideal partner for the wine.
We paid a visit at about 5pm every day, and a great way to finish off the day when you are all "Fresco'd out".
Go on, get there and enjoy the wine, before 'the best kept secret in Florence' gets out.

“Cozy and relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Was on a walking day to explore the west bank of Florence when i found this little place. They have a lot of wine variety and they offer great light food. It is just a little off the main street so you're not in the traffic of pedestrians and cars. Servers are friendly and food delicious for a faire prince. I'd go back anytime!
