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 food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We thought this was a very good restaurant. The food was tasty and generous. The service was perfect (why do foriegners continually whinge about this when they are abroad? I guess they do it at home too). it was reasonably priced and had a good buzz to it. It is well worth a trip being so close to the Piazza della Signoria.

“Carbonara. Oh, Carbonara.”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The title says it all. The service was nothing out of this world, if not to say it was quite disappointing and neither was its location. The food was to our pleasure, brilliant. If I had to revisit Florence, I would definitely revisit this restaurant. Oh damn, we enjoyed it.

“Terrible service!!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

The food is good, We had pasta and pizza. I ordered a small bottle of wine but got Only one glass and thats ok- accept for the charge of a bottle on the check.
The service is all in all terrible, We wanted dessert but the check came flying as soon as we were done with our meal. No ice cream, no coffe...
The waiters are not welcoming and they are not nice.
This restaurant does not deserve 4.5 in rating!
