Ate here tonight. Don't understand what all the fuss is about. First, for the uninitiated, a florentine steak is cooked RARE. Don't even think about asking for it cooked any other way. 2nd, the serve it in a 1.5-3kg portion ONLY (enough to feed 3-4 military personnel. Wife/I resorted to other items on their menu which were cooked. Stew was cold when it came, so we sent it back. 2nd time, it was still cold. Veal steak was not a good cut, ... a lot of fat. Wine offering was so-so. All in all, many other wonderful florentine restaurants to try.

My wife and I ate here on a busy Saturday night. Reservations were essential- even in mid-January but making them from Rome was surprisingly easy and only cost 15 euro cents. Well worth the call.

We had the huge beefsteak for two and were delighted with the quality. They have signs indicating that they won't prepare steaks well done and the reasons were obvious. While the thicker parts of this massive 3 inch thick steak seemed a bit red even for our usual medium-rare tastes the meat continued to cook and was perfect by the time we'd dispensed with the thinner parts. Juicy, flavorful and oh-so tender. This is a time to just trust the experts. These guys have been cooking beef forever and clearly know what they're doing.

The atmosphere was fun. Francesco, the delightful gentleman in charge, freely dispensed Limoncello and laughs to the exiting patrons and leaving was difficult. We'd happily come back here any time that we're fortunate enough to return to Firenze. Highly recommended.

Choose the latest shift for dinner. Enjoy how the guests prior you leave with satifaction but missing the best part: the late night and the sins. Sit down, don'tt order the wine... it will come by itself. Eat the excellent food. Tiramisú after the amazing pasta, why not? What is that noise? Who is singing? "You can't leave my restaurant till we finish the bottle of limoncello". Ok Tito... I'll be back for sure but now call me a taxi, I cannot drive!

Three of us went to this restaurant on a Wednesday night without reservations expecting it to be busy but not packed. It was packed. The only table they had left was directly in front of the entrance where there is lots of activity. We took it. We immediately knew that it was going to be an entertaining meal. The restaurant staff are all extremely friendly and very funny. They kept us entertained for the full duration of our evening - which ended up being nearly 3 hours. The prices were very reasonable, the florentine steak and the pastas delicious, the portions generous, and the service prompt. The side of spinach was disappointing, but that was the only negative. To keep expectations realistic, this is not a fancy gourmet type restaurant, but rather a local place with enormous character (and characters) that should not be missed by anyone with a fun-loving spirit who wants good food and a unique dining experience. The shots of limoncello and orangecello to cap the evening were great - just be prepared to say "when" or you may end up having more of them than you should. There are so many good restaurants in Florence that we would likely not return to any of the others we visited just so we could try different ones, but we would return to Antica Trattoria "da Tito" just because it is so much fun.
