“Service with a heart”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Perseus was recommended to me by a local and it is definitely worth the visit. It is a wonderful little restaurant on the outskirts of the city. The food is simple but wonderful. I had the Spaghetti Pomodoro which was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was absolutely lovely and gave us all sorts of lovely treats including some amazing meringues. It is a lovely experience for anyone.

“One for lovers of lumps of meat!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by hotel. We only wanted a light meal so probably not the right choice. Lots of butchers paraphernalia and the waiter loved putting on a show preparing carpaccio. One for those wanting a carne experience.

“best meal that we had in Florence”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

if you are looking for a meat restaurant, this is the place!
perfect atmosphere, basically locals and tasteful plates.
try the "tagliate". The spaghetti were also good.
Don't miss the excellent pannacotta for desert!

good prices (compared to the rest of Florence)

“Must order the steak!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I highly suggest that you save room and go straight to the steak. Not only will you save room in your stomach but also your wallet. Steak is measured by the kg and1 kg = 2.2 pounds which is 48 euros per kg. Obviously you can split that steak amongst several people, which is what we did to keep price down. But you get what you pay for a very delicious and true Florentine steak. We sat outside so i'm not sure what the inside looks like. The place does fill up around 8:30-9 pm so if you don't have reservations you should try to come earlier than that.
