Nice place where to eat original fiorentina steak. Very traditional and cosy. Very small thou and far too many tables for the size of the room. Service is not that responsive, hence the 3 stars only.

I think this is one of the best places to eat in Florence at reasonable prices. The food is very good and you really can appreciate the Italian flavors on it. I think all the dishes are good, since I have tried several in other several visits to Florence in the last years and I liked everything I ate here.... More

It's a cozy restaurant, but serves juicy, tasty steak that I enjoyed from the first bite to the last one. I love it served with sesame leaves that brought freshness for each bite. The house wine is good and not expensive. One thing would be the drawback is the cold hard bread which was also charged in the bill.

The place is right on the other place of the Porto Vecchio ´, yet a bit in the district - so it was just a pure luck. The place is where locals are coming - as the waiters have greeted many customer by the first name (and those where "experience" aged customers!). I had a lunch - which was Bisteca... More

We ate here three times, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening in the middle of November. It is a smallish, intimate restaurant with a reasonable menu at (for Florence) reasonable prices (we found the prices in Florence about 10 - 12% higher than Rome) The chef produced a Florentine steak that was one of the best I have ever had, though...

Found this place after searching online for a reasonably priced Florentine Steak. Arrived around 11:40am and was shrugged away by the female waitress after I asked what time they open which was at 12nn. We strolled by the Golden Bridge and returned by 11:55am and by this time we helped ourselves in. Apparently they officially start working when the campanile... More

So good we immediately made reservations for dinner. Dinner presented full menus with a broad range of dishes. We enjoyed all we ordered. Desserts... More

My sons and I ate there and the bistecca was heavenly. Also had the spinaci saltati and I felt that nonna was back and cooking for me again! It took us a little extra time to find it because the tripadvisor map put us on the street parallel to it along the Arno. After a little stroll we finally found... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
