Dining options: Dinner, Late Night, Reservations
Description: No menu and fixed price. If you like, you can drink some good wine. At your table, you'll be served (family style) 1,200 - 1,800 g or 2,400 g of top quality steak (600 g per person). While you steak is grilling, you'll taste a light appetizer to occupy your wait time and enjoy your steak with relish. Your steak will be done at sight on a wood-burning grill and will be accompanied by three side-dishes. A dessert will complete you dinner. The only extra could be the wine, if you like it, to be chosen from our rich list from €8.00 Upwards.

I was in Pistoia 2 weeks ago with my husband and We decided to try Bistecca Toscana suggested in Trip Advisor. It was a pleasant dinner. The atmosphere was really cozy and all the staff really gentle and competent. We had an explanation of the location and its history and the description of the wine chosen. About the food, what I can say is that here you can really taste the real Bistecca .. 600gr of steak with seasonal vegetables.. Amazing!!
The ratio quality-price was excellent: just 30€ for starters, 600gr of steak and sides and water, chocolate, biscuits and sweet wine. Furthermore, there is a huge variety of selected wines.
I really recommend to go there and I am looking forward to eat the Bistecca again.

Last week we were on a holiday around Italy and we ended up in Pistoia.. We were told by some local people to try the popular Florentine style steak at Bisteccatoscana so we tried this restaurant and were very pleased by this choice! The place is very nice and cozy, the waitress was nice and kind and spoke to us in English. We had traditional Tuscan style food, starting with "crostini" and ending with "vin santo" and Italian biscotti. But the best part of the dinner was the steak, whcih was cooked in front of us and tasted delicious! Maybe its not so easy to find this restaurant, because its not in the pedestrian area, but if you happen to find yourself in Pistoia, its definitely a good place to go to if you want to eat meat and drink good red wine!

Justifiably the best restaurant in Pistoia! Beginning from the absolutely hospitable and friendly service to the surprising picture voting in the end of the meal, our visit to Bisteccatoscana was an utter delicious win! We had some trouble with parking and a waiter helped me find a parking nearby which was really nice. The wine list was extensive and well documented (although only in italian) and we had the chance to taste a newly opened bottle of a 4yr aged Chianti which the manager offered us free of charge. The menu was of course beef steak, perfectly grilled outside and pink in the inside (the waiter asked us if we wanted it more grilled) with oven baked potatoes, boiled beans and a eggplant with cheese and tomatoes dish which complemented the beef perfectly. A sweet surprise was expecting us in the end with a sweet fruity liquor, iced coffee and anise biscuits. A perfect meal, more than friendly service and a great atmosphere!

My best friend and I ate at this wonderful restaurant this past Monday and it was an absolute pleasure! The service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly and warm, and extremely knowledgeable about their food! The antipasti was fabulous and the steak was cooked to absolute perfection. I sound like I'm gushing, but this was absolutely the best place we have eaten in Italy and even Europe! Absolutely wonderful! Everyone should go here, even take the trip from Florence!
