“Hidden Gem - Cant believe I have walked by it 100 times.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

After traveling to Florence for years and walking by this restaurant dozens of times, I finally went in this past January. I ended up going beck three times. The food is some of the freshest that I have had in all of Florence. The menu is hand written every day. The space is small and a traditional trattoria.

“Great Florentine food, awesome cannoli's!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Just got back from dinner here... Delicious authentic food, friendly English-speaking waiter, and the best cannoli I ever had! He said they're sent in twice per week directly from Sicily! Really good place to go for dinner either alone, couple, or family as I did. :-)

“Delicious Steak, Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Our last day in Florence, after some early morning wanderings, we knew we had time before our train left. We originally wanted to eat at Mario (a highly recommended place), but there was a wait of at least 30 min. We ain't got time for that! So, we decided to wander around, looking for local hole in the wall type places, and stumbled upon Trattoria La Burrasca. Upon entering, we knew we wanted to try the Florentine Steak.

It is a small restaurant, with maybe 10 tables max. When we arrived, there was only one table in the restaurant. Upon looking at the menu (apparently the specials change daily), we were thinking of just sharing everything, so we were going to get the steak, and a pasta dish. The server, however, was very adamant that we not mix the pasta with steak, so we opted for a few sides instead. And obvs, we had some chianti and acqua. The steak is 35€ per kg, and as we had 3, we would received a 1.5kg steak. The waiter also did warn us that the steak is cooked rare, but it ain't no thang. They brought out the uncooked steak to show us what it'll look like, which got us hyped for it. Our sides came out, and were a little salty, but we only cared about the steak.

The steak came out, and was humongous. Imagine 3 tiny Asian girls trying to tackle this steak. Somehow, we were able to devour it, it was that good. The meat was super tender, the seasonings super tasty, and the rareness of the steak didn't hinder it at all. As we were finishing, we noticed a able of 2 guys gawking at our finished steak, I'd like to think that seeing us table it pushed them to order the steak as well. Definitely a hidden gem in Florence!

“Will always be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Every time we travel to Florence, we make it a point to come here for the fava beans, bistecca fiorentina, and the pasta with the deer sauce. SO delicious. It's a tiny place, hole in the wall, but so quaint and delicious. MUST TRY!
