We are a family of four and so far went three days to eat there. Tomorrow will be our last day here snd we will eat there again. The olive oil and house vinegar so good I had to buy them. THE FLORENTINE STEAK AMAZING!

“Had to go back for more!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We tried Il Gatto e la Volpe based on a friend’s recommendation – it was so good we ended going back the next night! The artichoke salad, pesto gnocchi, pasta a la vodka, prosciutto tortellini, and tiramisu were all excellent. The house wine was a great value and the waiters were all extremely nice to non-Italian speaking tourists. Il Gatto definitely has an ‘exchange student refuge’ feel (ads on the placemats in English for local clubs and gyms), but there were many other families and a handful of locals there as well. Regardless, if you’re interested in a casual but delicious meal for a great value (~15E/person total) after a long day of sightseeing then Il Gatto is the place. We will definitely be back next time!

“One of the best meals in Florence”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Florence. A cute restaurant on the smaller side in a quieter part of town. Some of the cheapest prices in the city for a great meal. Wine and 2 courses was extremely reasonable. Get the penne alla vodka, it was delicious. We went in a relatively big group and they were very accommodating, and everyone loved their food. Great for a casual Italian dinner at a good price!

This restuarant was recommended to me by two friends who lived in Florence. It was easy to find, even though it is not in a heavily touristed area. The food was delicious, authentic & the service went above and beyond. I highly recommend a visit here on your stay in Florence.

family style is the way to go at gatto. unlimited wine, and the BEST balsamic i've ever had in my life. it's so thick and creamy, with some type of apple ingredients, hands down excellent. the pastas were a nice mix of different flavors. fun atmosphere, great service
