Description: In the lively and crowded environment of the Central Market of San Lorenzo, in the heart of the city of Florence, was founded the restaurant Za Za, in one of the buildings survived at the time ... Or maybe it's better to say that it is here that still lives: where now Za Za, in fact, since the early nineteenth century there was a small inn. It is 1977 when Stefano Bondi, born at number 18 of the Main Market Square in the old house of aunt Tonina , baptizes with the name Za Za this dining room and open to the public. It was April 7. At that time, Zà Zà was a small restaurant. Stefano Bondi worked with his mother from the beginning. Her role was fundamental in Bondi’s life, as well as being the soul of the restaurant, to which she devoted her whole life. A dish is not born by chance. In addition to creativity, which is indispensable, it requires “technique and common sense, an attention to timing, to each ingredient, and to the condiments, too…”.

After reading many reviews praising this restaurant, we made a dinner reservation and were not disappointed! The place itself is massive with lots of both indoor and outdoor seating. Quirky but well done decor with light blue velvet slipper chairs which were very comfortable.
If you like truffle dishes, this is your place!
They have a huge menu with all sorts of options, but also an entire page of the menu dedicated to truffle dishes! (Drool)
My husband and I had the truffle bruschetta to start (amazing), and I the truffled spaghetti carbonara, he the truffle gnocchi.
We both LOVED our dishes!!
Service was attentive and satisfactory. Not slow but not super fast either. Our server spoke good English too.
Highly recommend this restaurant. I can see why some went several times!

The food was not the most amazing we had but very good, lots to choose from and reasonably priced. We had no problem getting a patio seat at our reserved time. Service was fine, food and wine were fine, no complaints.

Visited this restaurant as another recommended nearby had been booked out for a private event and it was the luckiest thing to happen to us!! There was a wait of about 15mins for a table but the staff are so efficient we didn’t mind. The food was so amazing!! I had the tastiest risotto and my partner had steak. Highly recommend!

We showed up one night and saw a big crowd at the door.

We were tired and decided the food wasn’t worth waiting for.

But because of the the reviews we booked a table for the next night.

When we arrived the next day we saw a similar sight.

But we walked up and showed the staff our reservation.

And expected to be ushered in without any hesitation.

However this only got our name on the waiting list.

Which I have to say was an unexpected twist.

We assumed that booking a table would get us in without waiting too long.

But after waiting 45 minutes it turned out we were wrong.

The food was exceptional and deserves a five star rating.

But having made a reservation we did not expect to be left waiting.
