Description: The "Grotta Guelfa" is a necessary stop for those who are passionate about good food and love the most authentic dishes. They are dishes that remain tied to tradition and their territory but, at the same time, do not turn away from new tastes. Patrons can have their dinner in the cosy and small lounge or in the wide porch with air conditioning and lively decoration, accessible year-round. The restaurant is located near the old "Palagio dei Capitani di Parte Guelfa". From this corner of Florence, famous for its typical medieval structure, it is possible to start an amazing tour among the artistic beauties of the city.

“Great small restaurant close to the Davanzati.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice during our recent trip to Florence. Once for dinner and the other for lunch. Food was exceptional both times and our waiters/waitresses spoke good English. Recommendations were offered and service was always with a smile. Would visit again.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We came here twice during our stay in Florence, once for lunch and back again for dinner. Both times were delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. The outdoor seating is especially nice on a hot summer day.

“Enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We deliberately booked this restaurant so that we could sit outside on Easter Saturday and watch the start of the Scoppio del Carro march. The atmosphere was great, the service very good and the food was reasonable value with plenty of choice.

“Great food !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I hadn't sourced this restaurant on tripadvisor before our holiday, probably because it was not rated that highly, so it was good fortune that took us there.

On a very wet lunchtime, my wife and I passed by their window on Via Porta Rosa and it looked very inviting. We found the entrance around the corner and were given a warm welcome. The lunch time clientele were mainly local and we ate a very good lunch from their menu del giorno.

The food was so good, we returned a few days later and reserved a table for dinner that night. Another great meal !

Highly recommended.
