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.

“Good enough that we went back several times”

The best onion soup I have ever eaten. The location was good. We usually sat inside but there was outside seating. The service was very good. The house wine was also very good. Bathrooms were clean and modern. Their pasta with tomato sauce could have used more herbs but was good. Tuscan vegetable soup was not very flavorful. Overall ours was a good experience on several occasions.

“Il miglior ristorante di firenze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I've been at the Grotta Guelfa many times and every time is better than the last!!!
I want to thank all the staff ( in particular Gersi very kind and funny ) and the kitchen.

I've eat in many restaurants in Florence but REALLY this is the best!!!

Can't wait to come back!

Tips: try ravioli alla moda dei guelfi or the bistecca alla fiorentina here is special!

“Great Florence Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Loved that this place was a bit off the beaten track, that there were mostly Italians eating here, that the food was delicious and the service was wonderful - all in the center of Firenze.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Excellent, wonderful choice on the menu at reasonable prices. We ended up having steak but the pastas looked fantastic, it was just so hard to actually choose what you wanted. We sat outside which we can recommend as the restaurant is in a small picturesque square. Definitely would return to this restaurant.
