Price range listed on tripadvisor is quite misleading, pastas are about 10-15euro and seafood mains are 20+.
We walked in with no reservation on a Sat night. Crab risotto was 11 euro (half a crab!). Would recommend the sea bass with pasta and tomato (about 12euro?) and 2 oysters (2 euro each), all the food was so tasty and fresh, pasta was probably the best we've had in 4 Italian cities. No cover charge, inexpensive wine and they will give you tap water if you ask.

Lob's had been built up in my mind with two trusted recommendations, and it did not disappoint. We booked, early for us at 7.45, and were able to sit outside, but the inside looked very inviting also. All three of us ate the fried anchovies which were excellent, and then had a mix of different mains: swordfish for one, seafood spaghetti for another, and I had the crab risotto. All were well presented and with an excellent taste. With wine etc the bill for three was EURO 85, so definitely not excessive for fantastic food in the middle of the city. I do hope to return sometime soon!

This place is conveniently located in Via Faenza and close to Duomo and e city center. We sat inside and the decor is just adorable, you feel like in a cozy traditional fish place, we order the oysters t start and they were just amazing. My mom had the seafood risotto, which was so delish and I had the lobster pasta and it was just amazing!!! Our bill with a bottle of with wine was 50 euros, which I thought it was not that bad since we had all this amazingness!!! I really want to come back there!!! Yummmmmm

Himself is only new to seafood (having always adamantly proclaimed his hatred for all things fish) but since easing him onto it and then visiting Croatia, he has a new-found appreciation for it. As such (and seeing as we stayed in Via Faenza whilst in Florence), we thought we must give Lob's Fish a go on the Friday evening of our stay.

We didn't have a reservation but that wasn't a problem. The waitress allowed us to sit outside to watch the world go by, which also happened to be by the window where the fresh seafood (lobsters, crabs, mussels etc) were - made for interesting viewing!

Over the course of the evening we ordered a main each (Himself grilled swordfish and I ordered the mixed shellfish risotto, accompanied by a mixed salad), a bottle of Tuscan white wine and finished by sharing a dessert. All food was fantastic (though Himself still doesn't like steamed zucchini!) and we were most satisfied with our experience. The only downside was that the table behind us lit up cigarettes during our meals. Sigh, this seems to be an ongoing problem with outdoor dining in Italy unfortunately.

I must also mention the wonderful service we received from our waitress. Not only was she friendly and efficient, she was also more than willing to answer our questions regarding the types of fish we could see in the window to the point of coming back with an Italian to English dictionary to name one variety she couldn't remember the English translation for!

Can't remember the exact price but believe it was around €60 in total, which isn't too bad really.

Located near the main Mercato, on Via Faenza, Lobs is a small and casual restaurant with AMAZING seafood. The home made Taglialone is the best pasta I ever ate. The seafood is FRESH. The dishes are amazing. You will want to eat here every night you are in Flirence. The prices are very fair, and this is a casual place, nothing fancy, but it is the BEST
