Just genuine home made food. Very popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Service is quick and friendly. Prices are really good for the quality of the food!

Everything we ordered was delectable. A plate of wild boar sausage, pasta carbonara, and lasagna were winners.

We went to this restaurant on the advice of a fellow traveler and what we read on Trip Advisor. It was by far the worst food we had in Italy. We ordered the chef's suggested "Fantasy Dinner" which quickly became our worst nightmare. The three pasta samples for the first course was pretty good. The second course, the three types of meats and roasted potatoes was awful! The meats were dry, over cooked, and tastless. I couldn't even cut the beef and the pork was inedible. The waiter was not friendly (a bit rude) and wouldn't make any recommendations. Maybe we came too early (7:30pm) - maybe if you sit in front (where we were sat) the food isn't as good. I don't make a habit of making negative reviews, but this restaurant does not deserve the very good rating.

We ate at La Spada twice during a five day sat in Florence a few weeks ago. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was warm and relaxed. We enjoyed our meals on both occasions. The bistecca fiorentina was great - even for one of us who does not usually eat steak. Overall a great experience and great value for money.

La Spada is a casual restaurant with great food and very good service. It was such a great experience we came on consecutive nights. We split the kilo of steak. It was excellent. It was served with roasted potatoes and veg. The service on both nights was friendly and attentive. It is easy to see it is run by true professionals who take pride in their work. We highly recommend La Spada.
