“Delicious, delightful, dinner”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

Saw a friend's recommendation, saw the reviews, staying a few blocks away so checked it out. REALLY good, really reasonable, very friendly. If we were here longer we'd certainly return. We Had the Ribollita and a veal stew with roasted potatoes and spinach and a bottle of house red (really pretty decent). Not stuffed, but quite satisfied (and ready for a walk before gelato) and for under 40 euro. Hard to beat.

“If you have one meal in Florence...”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

... Let it be here!

Tuscan cooking at its best. And without a doubt the best bistecca fiorentina in town.

The restaurant is small and fills quickly but the service is great.

Must-tries include the leek quiche-like pie: La Porrea; any homemade pappardelle pasta dish but particularly if it's made with wild boar (cinghiale); and, of course, the florentine steak.

Desserts are divine but you will need to bring an appetite!

“A superb (huge) new year's menu with lovely food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Great food with inventive designs like boar with chocolate sauce. The set menu on New Year's Eve was a pleasure to eat (if impossible to finish!).
Worth trying and very efficiently managed an email booking.

“Si mangia bene!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Like other reviewers, we were recommended this restaurant by our hotel proprietor (along with another restaurant, whose name I have mercifully forgotten) and ended up at La Pentola after walking out of the first place after having sat there for 20 minutes with no service. La Pentola dell'Oro takes its food seriously: the Tuscan menu has interesting dishes including steaks and wild boar - both highly recommended - and the service is friendly and efficient. Deserts were good; wines were well chosen. We were seated downstairs and our fellow diners were a mixture of locals and tourists. In fact, the following night we returned and were not surprised to see exactly the same set of diners surrounding us as had been there the night before. We smiled at each other: we were all in on the secret. Go there! Si mangia proprio bene!
