“Steak Florentine and Tiramisu”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Recommended by Hotel Alba Palace, this restaurant was quite simply one of the highlights of my trip to Florence. The staff and ambiance within the restaurant were superb and surpassed only by the quality of the food. I order a Steak Florentine (T-bone, 4.50euros/100g, 30euros total) with Tuscan style beans (~5euros) and 1/4L house red wine (3.50euros). For dessert I had the Tiramisu (~5euros). This meal would have been a bargain at twice the price. The steak was one of the best I've had and living in Alberta, Canada I've had my fair share of beef. The beans were recommended by my server to go with the steak in Tuscan tradition, I was a bit apprehensive about getting them but they proved to be delicious. The house wine was cheap and paired perfectly with the steak. I had heard the Tiramisu was one of the highlights of La Martinicca and despite being absolutely stuff from my steak and beans I couldn't stop eating it! My total bill ran to ~50euros which I was happy to pay.

For anyone looking for an authentic Florence restaurant experience, La Martinicca is your place!

“Good value family run restaurant”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile


We went this little restaurant on two successive nights because we loved it so much the first time. However we now realised it was primarily the waitress that looked after us the first night that made that evening so memorable.
The waitress clearly explained the menu and the met our expectations. We shared the zucchini salad and then had a pasta each. Both were really good. We also had a lovely chat with people on our neighbouring tables.
The next night it was clear they were understaffed and under pressure. Gone was the waitress and casual friendliness, replaced by almost bossy efficiency. The food was still good as it was the same kitchen staff. They came out several times each night to chase up orders and wave to the customers. We also had great chats with other dinners. However the ambience wasn't the same.
So, for a nice night out with good, honest family style food - this is a safe option.

“Dinner at La Martinicca”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Went dinner on Martinicca suggested by front desk of Albani Hotel. We found table without having a reservation, which was nice.
We were fed up with italian food, and found here nice suggestions away from pizzas and pastas. What we ate was really tasty, the only minus is the price... Prepare to spend at least 25€/ person! But I still recommend it! Nice place!
