THIS place. We ended up here for lunch and had tried to go the night before but we couldn't get a table. So, we put it on our list for the next day and prepared ourselves for a heavy lunch! I ate SO much pasta throughout Italy (when in Rome, right?) and I had my moments where I questioned, "Should... More

So we checked out the reviews for La Burrasca and decided to eat there on a Tuesday night. This night our food was absolutely amazing, the steak we had was some of the best we had ever eaten that melted in our mouths. The potatoes were even good. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back for... More

Nice hidden gem, trattoria style but has that authentic feel. Menu written down in pen on a sheet of A4! Plenty of locals in here and it was recommended to us from an earlier tour we had been on, otherwise doubt we would have come across it. We didn't make a reservation but arrived on 7pm and our kind waiter... More

Small, quaint and very accommodating to personal preferences. La Burrasca has fantastic first courses (pastas and soups), and a variety of second courses and side dishes. The house wine is perfect with just pasta or for a whole meal. This is one of my favorite places to go for a light lunch, great service and good conversation with friends.

Our last night in Florence (2nd Nov) and the best. Clean plates all round. Delicious Tuscan food with efficient, characterful service and great value. We will return.

We found this wonderful restaurant through Rick Steves and we are so happy we followed Rick suggestion. This is a small family run restaurant that serves top notch Italian cuisine. This was our second trip to Florence and we ate at the restaurant several times during our stay, and each time the food was simply wonderful. The flavours were a... More

I came here a couple of times as it was just round the corner from my hotel: once on my own for dinner and once with my partner for lunch. The only thing that stopped me coming a third time was that their credit card machine wasn't working! This restaurant has a feel of authenticity, with a small menu of... More

In a city full of restaurants catering to tourists, this restaurant felt the most real. The menu is pleasantly small, the food is fresh and delicious, the wine is flowing, and the service is warm and relaxed.

This is one of those restaurants where you hesitate to give a glowing review for fear others will discover it and you won't be able to get a table next time you go. :) We spent a month in Florence and ate there probably 15 times. We tried other restaurants but kept coming back to the family feeling and fantastic... More

The restaurant is located behind the Central Market. It is small (only 13 tables) but provide scrumptious meals at very reasonable cost. The staff work extremely hard and the service was marvellous. If you don't get there right at 7 Pm, you will likely need a reservation.
