The service was good especially with the personal touch of hosts. The food was delicious and the wines recommended excellent. We enjoyed the warm up after dinner and liked the fact that the customers were Florentines. We were told that they also serve before dinner drinks and have brunch on Sundays. Compared to a lot of other places in Florence we found La Buchetta's decor comfortably chic.

Last week I went to dinner with my friend.
We go there often to make an aperitive or a drink after dinner, but never eat.
the place is very amazing, warm, smiling people, friendly, and available ...
you immediately feel at home and among friends.
the food is very good and the place is very near to local club and to the most beautiful local of the city.
Will definitely be back

For someone who has lived over 4 years in Florence, a place La Buchetta really came to rescue last year. Its very non-Florentine atmosphere (in a good way!), amazing staff and delicious selection of wines and food make it a perfect aperitivo/early night place to relax and socialize with friends. Despite of its location at the end of the 'American Street', its clients are mostly locals and slightly older than the average customers in the neighborhood. I'm biased, as I have known the people working there for years, but I can but really warmly recommend La Buchetta! <3 La Buchetta - La Mia Famiglia Fiorentina <3

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Florence, and we stumbled upon La Buchetta Cafe quite serendipitously, as it turns out. The owners - Paolo and Gabriella - are gracious and welcoming, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is comfortable and cozy.

On our last night in Florence, we returned to La Buchetta and had a tasting type meal, which was exquisite.....

While in Florence, stop by La Buchetta for a relaxing evening of fine wine, fine food, and great service!

I can't do justice by trying to top the other reviews written here (who said people have lost the ability to write well!), so I'll just tell you my experience and impressions. I happened upon this fantastic little restaurant in the midst of a three-week solo trip through France, Italy and Greece. In a trip of many highlights, this was a highlight of the highlights! Firstly, the food is delicious and healthful. This is not your typical "tourist" Italian restaurant - this is the real thing. Second, the decor and atmosphere give rise to a feeling of real comfort and warmth. Third - but most important in my personal experience - is the quality of people. Owners Paulo and Gabriella are warm, interesting, knowledgeable, and most gracious hosts. If you happen to meet their lovely daughter Guilia, a bonus! Bartender Marco is a first-rate guy as well. Whenever I get back to Florence, this will be my first stop. If you go, be sure to say a few words to Paulo and/or Gabriella.
A personal note to Paulo, Gabriella and Marco - thank you, thank you, thank you :)
