After being in Italy for almost 5 days, we were still waiting to have a lengthy, slow and enjoyable dinner where we didn't feel like we were being rushed out of the restaurant. Baldovino was recommended by a friend who lives in Florence and was the first place we went where we were able to enjoy our courses (and wine, of course) with attentive waiters who made sure that our meals were perfect. We split the pasta with bacon and peas, the lasagna, and the pasta with tomato and eggplant ragu and all were phenomenal. We finished the night with delicious tiramisu and cappuccinos and the restaurant even gave us limoncello on the house! Highly, highly recommended!

First, food is fresh and good, location is pleasant and well taken care of very near one of my favorite piazzas in Florence (s.croce).
Second, it's not a tourist trap. Service is welcoming and careful. Weird to say but we had a problem with our order and waited a bit too long. It was clear we were tourists and most of other places wouldn't have cared much about it. Well they discounted 25% off our bill. I found it really remarkable esp in such tourist area.

Perfectly fine food and nice outdoor seating- we spent two days in Florence and this was the only "average" meal we had. (All the others were outstanding). We'd found the restaurant on a travel forum, where previous diners had praised it as being non touristy. It's on a side street, but immediately borders the Church of Santa Croce, so that is simply not true, but it was fine and we had a tasty salad and pizza. If you're looking for something more authentic though, would suggest you move past the main tourist drag.

We came across this restaurant one lunchtime and had a wonderful meal sat outside in the shade. I have the meat platter which was delicious. The staff were very friendly and service excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we returned in the evening a coupe of days later. Again the staff were wonderful and the food excellent. I would definitely recommend this place and would return.
