“Love this restaurant”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Went here years ago when I was studying in Florence and recently came back on a return trip. It's still wonderful. Very traditional Tuscan, fabulous seafood. Mussels in particular were great. Reasonably priced.

“Hidden gem -- great bang for your buck authentic Italian”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is away from the touristy parts of town, so if you're looking for a delicious authentic style Italian dinner that is very reasonably priced, this is the spot for you. I recommend the fixed prix fish menu if you like seafood. It was absolutely delicious and very fresh. This place is always filled with locals so you get a great experience!

“Great value - authentic local italian”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This place is great value for money if you're looking to fill up with local pasta, cheese, meats and seafood. Always crowded during lunch hours. The portions are very generous, the cooking simple and fresh. Good for group lunches/dinners with friends but not really a place for quiet romantic dinner.

“Osteria dei Centro Poveri”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our daughter studied in Florence for a year and each time I visited Florence we went to eat here daily as the food and service was excellent each time. I highly recommend this Osteria for authentic Tuscan cooking and wonderful value for money.

“Great food and fast service ”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

We arrived around 730 and got a table right away. The place was packed within the next 30 min. Very fast server which is rare in Europe and excellent food for a good price, which is also rare. We had a 1L of house wine, bottle water, a huge bowl of mussels for appetizer and gnocchi for entree and of course a lot of bread for 40 eur! Great spot!
