On our first trip to Florence thirty years ago we happened upon Il Profeta on the Borgo Ognissanti. It was a splurge for us then but we have always remembered how much we enjoyed our meal. This past May we returned to Florence and decided to see if the restaurant was still there. We were delighted to find that is is still going strong and the owner and waiters treated us like long lost relatives. They kept giving us litle surprises from the chef. Their pasta dishes were excellent and their bistecca alla fiorentina was cooked just as I asked for it (not blood red as so many restaurants serve it). I feel like I ate half a cow, but it was delicious!
This restaurant is elegant and a perfect place for couples.
We promised not to wait so long to return next time, and we will definitely be back.
