The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. We ate outside, half a block from our hotel (Davanzati, see review) - lovely.

Great portions and fresh, fresh pasta. Had a muscle app - there were at least 30! Very reasonable price - at least 10 euros less than other restaurants.

Service was excellent just like the dinner. We tried a menu and a grilled fish, and then dessert. This place is a good choice.

When in Tuscany, look for Tuscan food. Wonderful steak, onion soup and mushroom pasta. Service was very helpful since the menu was extensive.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio

The "Grotta Guelfa" is a necessary stop for those who are passionate about good food and love the most authentic dishes. They are dishes that remain tied to tradition and their territory but, at the same time, do not turn away from new tastes. Patrons can have their dinner in the cosy and small lounge or in the wide porch with air conditioning and lively decoration, accessible year-round. The restaurant is located near the old "Palagio dei Capitani di Parte Guelfa". From this corner of Florence, famous for its typical medieval structure, it is possible to start an amazing tour among the artistic beauties of the city.
