We asked the receptionist at our hotel for a recommendation and she recommend La Spada as a place where she and her father go. Although this was a Thursday evening and we had no reservation we were lucky to get a table as by 8/8.30 the place was completely full and not just tourists. we opted for Antipasto Della Casa, Tortellini alla Medici, Vitello tonnato and a bottle of wine(we did nothing but walk all week). Dishes were presented well and could not complain about taste. However, it was a little overpriced. As we left we were asked by another couple about the restaurant and we recommended it - they recommended Osteria Pastella, which we did visit later. I would recommend a reservation if possible.

This was one of the best restaurants we went to in Florence. We ordered the bistecca to shared between two of us. It was cooked perfectly and was massive!! We also ordered potatoes and beans to go with it. Great service, would recommend

I never send food back but the lasagne served to me in a small bowl looked like soup. Their excuse was that's what happens when it's made fresh. I don't think so and I know so! The replacement roasted chicken dish was so dry I couldn't eat it. My 2 other friends ordered a pasta trio and meat trio. The pasta dishes were OK but the meats were dry and overcooked.

And very friendly staff. Good pasta al dente too. Don't be afraid to ask for suggestions, they are honest.
