“Trust your instincts”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We'd said this to one another several times in the preceding week - that restaurants in the vicinity of popular tourist sites had no need for repeat business and therefore no need to sell good food with good service. 100 Posti proves that point - our two dishes came out of the kitchen at different time, meaning my lunch was over before my wife's had begun, and nobody seemed to care much about how we were treated. The calzone farcito ('stuffed' calzone) was full of air and little else, the red wine was room temperature which, having been stored near the door in March was quite cold, and it was all delivered to us in what a relentless optimist would possibly describe as a nonchalant manner, but what was actually a sort of dismissive carelessness that bordered on leading me to believe that we'd interrupted the staff as they went about pretending to run an eatery.

Hopefully the rise of websites such as Tripadvisor will lead to people avoiding these restaurants and forcing the quality to improve. Until then, avoid.

“Try somewhere else”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We walked into 100 posti after a tiring day and we didn't spend much time looking around, and were disappointed as a result. The bread seemed stale and the starter of Tuscan appetiser was far from great. The pizza was soggy. The service was ok, and the wine was actually quite nice. The music turned into what sounded like heavy italian rock by the end. I'd really try somewhere else.

“Wonderful! Really cheap and good!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

By far the best restaurant we found in Florence. Right on the town center and really cheap with the tourist menu (15 euros for first, second plates with salad and beverage). Wonderful service! A really must go!

“Wish we'd read the reviews first ...”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

I concur with the majority of reviewers here - keep on walking past this place. The pizzas (we tried two different types) were soggy, made with cheap cheese and other ingredients and were all-round really ordinary. We ordered glasses of coke which were exorbitantly priced at ?5 each (should have checked the price before ordering!) and were awful syrupy post-mix and pretty much undrinkable.
Also, randomly, the maitre d' was wearing a t-shirt depicting numerous sexual positions which we also found very odd, and which would probably be considered offensive by many.
