VERY close to Piazza Signoria. I chose this restaurant because the restaurant I was looking for was closed on Monday night and the interior and the menu looked inviting. Being a small restaurant, it was about 1/2 full when I arrived around 7:15 with mostly tourists. The staff seemed pleasant enough with a small understanding of English. The seasonal pumpkin risotto lacked much flavor. The pork and chicken stew was good. Ambiance was fantastic and the restuarant quickly filled up and had a line waiting outside. I'm assuming this is why I was unceremoniously handed my check and asked to leave within 5 minutes to accommodate a "reservation". This would have been fine if the rest of the people who were well into there dinners had been asked as well, but they weren't. Clearly NOT a restaurant friendly to single travelers.

I went to Florence just for one day with some friends and this place was strongly recommended from other friends so we decided to follow the tip. The restaurant is quite little located in a old shop (many pics on the walls show it) just ten tables inside but if the weather is fine you also have the outside option. Food was good, service very nice and the price fair. Book a table if you don't wanna wait.

We ate here almost everyday! Order the risotto. Was my fave. Great staff! At one point we thought they didn't like us, but we realized that some just didn't seak English and our Italian is lowsy. Good food, wine, and atmosphere.

We had a very good lunch here: Tuscan pasta and tomato risotto.
No culinary highlight but good food and service at a reasonable price in a pictoresque restaurant.

Our first night to Florence, Italy after a long day of travels and we were so happy to find Birreria! We wanted to sit outside but it was too busy so we decided to eat inside. What a great decision. The service and food were awesome. We even went back on a different day for lunch, and to sit outside, and lunch was superb as well. Highly recommended to anyone who wants an authentic well valued meal in Italy!
