We had a hard time finding this restaurant, but it was worth the effort. It's on the street that takes you over the Pointe alle Grazie. We walked in for lunch on a very hot day and found the cafe a bit dark but cool and refreshing. Very modern, chic decor, not what you would expect in Florence. I had the lasagne which had a very rich bolognese sauce with tomato, cream and cheese. Delicious! My husband had the tuna bruchetta with tomato, olives, capers, basil and anchovies in lemon and a ridicchio mista. Very good. Service was good but then we were the only customers there.

This cafe/restaurant serves fantastic food and wine in a laid back atmosphere. We went there twice and were the only tourists on both occasions. The wine list was extensive and served in lovely glasses by knowledgeable staff. Great food and cool venue.

We ended up leaving because the waiter simply did not know the menu, and the ambience was not our style. Too contemporary and plain odd. Nicely decorated, but strange artwork for our taste. The food was not very good, and then they ended up charging all sorts of fees (even for the bread basket we didn't ask for) because we ended up just having drinks and an appetizer.

We were in Florence for 6weeks and lunched at La Buchetta several times.
The food and ambience is excellent and the owner Paulo and his wife made us feel so welcome.
A "must" place to dine in Florence.
The historic Palazzo is beautiful and should be viewed.

Food in this place is amazing, is cozy, flavourful and creative. I had one of the best ducks of my life in La Buchetta. However, is not the food that make this place really amazing, is their warm and efficient staff. They knew we were in honeymoon and prepared a special desert for us as a gift. Really nice gesture!
