Ok, I have to admit, when me and my wife walked into this restaurant at the hour they opened for dinner service, we were a bit unsure. Yes, many people gave good reviews about this place, but there were literally nobody there within the first 30 minutes of its opening! Plus, the decors looked like it has been that way... More

The restaurant is traditional, small, a family business I think but here I eat the best octopus salad in the world and the best pasta. I eat some Pappardelle for the first time and they were very good. In other night I ordered for dinner beef meat tended and very good cooked. I really recomand the place!

Good menu offering all the tuscan favourites. The restaurant its self is unassuming to look at; but the staff are friendly and the food and wine were outstanding. The gnocchi and slow cooked beef was beautiful. Highly recommend!

Cafaggi has been there for a long, long time; always owned and run by the same family, it serves an excellent mix of land and sea staples of the Tuscan cuisine. Whatever you choose, you cannot go wrong. Last time I had the minestra di farro (spelt soup), a typical dish of Northern Tuscany, and I can affirm that it... More

We were there for Christmas Eve dinner and it did not disappoint. We ordered pasta and steak. We were lucky because it got crowded by the time we left. I was undecided when choosing dessert and they let me sample quite a lot of their pastries on offer, and they were heavenly. Not too sweet, just perfect. In the end... More

I had the eggplant Parmesan and my husband had the roasted artichoke risotto for our first course. We split the roast beef and roasted potatoes for our second course. The food was delicious and judging by the conversations of the locals around us - this is a hidden gem for authentic Tuscan food. Francesca, our server was very attentive and... More

We received a recommendation for Cafaggi from a local resident who we met in Montalcino. There were a few recent reviews that weren't so positive, so we were a bit hesitant to go. But we are glad we did. Food was amazing. Service was wonderful. And atmosphere was lively - restaurant was completely packed. We did there dinner special -... More

This was a recommendation from our hotel. We should have made reservations but they made it work on getting us in. The house wine was fantastic, the food too. We tried soups, pasta, fish, and meat dishes and everyone loved all. Pretty fantastic that 3 generations of the same family were working this night and most likely most nights. This... More

I would not recommend this restaurant if looking for an authentic florentine experience. The staff are kind and friendly, however the Italian culture is lost here with the bright lighting and constant attention from the server. We ordered gnocchi with meat sauce, which was overcooked and obviously hadn't been prepared to order. The fried artichokes are over salted and bland... More

We had dinner at Cafaggi on our final night in Florence and both enjoyed our food without loving it. With the 20€ deal for two courses, the restaurant was reasonably good value for money. The service was excellent.
