Was there with my newly wedded wife - place truly amazing with great food and a cody atmosphere. The hosts extremely nice and food among the best we have had in Tuscany.

We were disappointed by our meal at this trattoria, particularly as it seems to be highly recommended. Maybe it was an off night? In any case, the gnocchi were mushy and the risotto too salty. The insalata mista looked like it had been prepared hours before and the radicchio was bitter. The waiters were great; friendly and attentive. Too bad the quality of the food did not match their level of service.

We have spent 4 days in Florence and experienced a variety of restaurants but having looked at trip advisor we decided that Tratatoria Da Ginone was worth a try. What an under-statement!! This is an exceptional restaurant. The atmosphere, ambience, level of service and quality of food are beyond compare. We were made very welcome by the head waiter, although we hadn't booked, found a table and provided with a level of service beyond our expectations. After a few minutes we realised just how lucky we had been as every table was filled with pre-booked customers. Our choice of ravioli starter with beef in red wine sauce accompanied with fried potatoes, spinach and beans was excellent with the best house wine imaginable. This was followed by deserts which included creme brûlée, chocolate tarte and black current pie - all delicious. We were treated to a liqueur by the restaurant and then a complimentary bottle of wine. You could not ask for more. This restaurant was so good that we immediately booked for the remaining two nights of our Florence stay and know that we will not be disappointed.

Went there because of Trip Advisor review. Food was good but bread was dry and stale. I did not get my change back. I think it was unfortunate because they should let me decide if I would give them more tip or not. This is bad taste. So my advise is give them the exact amount, for the cover charge is added already! In my situation 25% was tip. There are many restaurants in Florence, so go explore!

We had a special and wonderful experience in Ginone. It wasn't just a meal, it was an Italian feast.
We booked in advance (as you should too) and when we arrived we were greeted with a big smile.
For an appetizer we ordered the liver pate crostini. It was superb.
Then we had the tortellini al ragu, and the pici spaghetti. These were excellent original courses, and unlike anything we had before.
We continued with the beef stew in red wine which was so tender and savoury.
Finally we had the chocolate cake, excellent as well. And ofcourse, espresso.
On our way out, we were given a small bottle of wine as a souvenir.
We had a wonderful evening and we recommend Ginone to anyone who visits Florence and loves good food.
