Delicious homemade Ravioli with Truffle sauce. Wonderful tender pork. Sabrina our waitress was wonderful professionally but also lovely with our kids. Great and reasonable wine list! Enjoy!

“The soups are the star at this great downtown restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We live in Florence and though the restaurants in the center can be tourist traps, this place is an exception (with good food and warm service) and remains one of our favorites (for the food, staff, and the location).

The minestrone soup is not to be missed and is a real treat. It is pure vegetable deliciousness. The ribolita and tomato soups are also great. Be sure to try to soup trio on a cold day. It is belly and soul warming food.

Be sure to try their house olive oil. It has a grassy, spiciness that is fantastic. (From all the minerals in the rocks where the olives grow).

Our kids love the pizza and the thin, crispy crust. The steak is also good.

The rest of the menu is ok. The soups are the real star.

“Typically Florentine”

A restaurant that prides itself on its typical Florentine food. The service is great, the environment cosy and warm and the food delicious. If you find yourself in the area you won't regret eating here!

“MARVELOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Eating at Giannino's was by far one of THE BEST experiences during my trip to Italy. The atmosphere is great, the food is excellent, the service is superb. We were warmly greeted every time we came in with a hearty Prego!, and Sabina is the absolute best waitress I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.We were in Florence for 3 days and ate there every single day-sometimes twice a day, and Sabina became less of a waitress and more of a friend to us. She is so sweet and helpful, and just a great person. We had to take a picture of her on our last day, and once we left Florence, I missed her and the restaurant and the food. I highly recommend Giannino's for an excellent meal and a great time, reasonable prices, great wine, coffee and brownie cake! If I ever get back to Italy, this will be one of my first stops :-)
