This was the only restaurant we've eaten twice in our 12-days trip in Italy... Just great... good food, excellent service... the toscano bread in a paper bag is great.. We had Gran tagliere misto del banconiere, Strudel di funghi con semi di papavero alla salsa di parmigiano (the best appetizer ever!), Gnocchi al formaggi and al pomodoro, Lasagne al forno casarecce, Lasagnette di grano saraceno al ragù d’agnello e mandorle tostate (one of the best pasta I've ever tried!!) and a HUGE Grilled Pork Chop alla toscana... The house wine.. great.. the best Tiramisu .. everuthing was great.. the service is awesome... A place to repeat.

What a great find! We chose this lovely restaurant for our first night's dinner, based on its standing on Trip Advisor. The food was memorable, the service excellent, and the prices very reasonable. Every mouthful of the food was lovely and we enjoyed our visit very much.

Accademia is a modest, warm and familiar feeling restaurant which just happens to contain the best meal I've ever experienced in my life (Not an understatement either). The service was very warm and attentive. They made us feel welcome and treated us with a glass of sparkling wine each before we were seated. We treated ourselves and shared a steak which was a minimum order of 1kg! Costing 45 euros. The food was so tender and full of flavour that it blew my mind. I'm 35 and experienced my fair share of restaurants around the world. Food, good quality house wine, service and just the general feel of the place all combined made it the best restaurant experience we've ever had. It was so good that we returned later the same week after experiencing a number of other recommended restaurants and this was clearly the best. We tried different meals the second time round and these didn't disappoint either. We we're remembered by the staff and rewarded with a few extra treats such as an extra complementary appetiser and a schnapps each to finish off the meal.

You can have no idea how satisfying it is to have people come more than once on their trip and still be pleased! First time experiences can sometimes create unbearably high expectations of something even better second time around. Glad the magic still held for you. Thanks so much for choosing us, and when you have the chance, pop over for dinner!

This is our third trip to Florence, and we have eaten here several times on all 3 visits. The food is delicious, the service top notch, the atmosphere comfortable and inviting. Kush, one of their very long time employees, is extremely knowledgable about wines, and will select the perfect bottle if you tell him about your preferences. The owner, Gianni, has always been there, with a warm and inviting welcome. (His wife is from New York.) Try this place, hopefully, you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Even our staff are part of the family, including Kush who virtually grew up with us here at Ristorante Accademia. So pleased to have you among our regulars!

As a woman alone (husband & children abandoned!), once more in Florence, it is heaven to revisit such a warmly welcoming local family restaurant serving delicious fresh food & wine to match. Customers with large appetites (not me) will appreciate the house wine & dine menu, whilst those with small appetites (me) might choose from a good selection of lighter daily specials (or perhaps the fish).

Not haute cuisine for fussy foodies or the pretentious! But good ingredients, lovingly and skilfully prepared in a solid family-run restaurant. Honest food at honest prices, served by kind and friendly people.

Please give waitress Puya a kiss from me! Priscilla Roscoe (UK).

Oh we are happy to hand out kisses. Kisses are good for people. More kissing goes on (the friendly kind) in here than is probably an national Italian average for a restaurant. Glad we make we provide you with a comfy place to come whilst you are abandoning your family! We look forward to your next visit.
