Il Gatto is a great restaurant to eat at if you want to try a new Italian dish without spending tons of money on it while you're still unsure if you'll like it or not. The menu is extensive, and though the food is good, it probably won't be the best meal you have in Italy (unless you have only... More

Studied abroad in Italy for 4 months attending so many restaurants and this was hands down my favorite. The risotto and pasta with vodka sauce is to die for. Made sure this was my last meal before returning home.

We ate at Gatto our first night in Florence, and then ate at much higher-priced restaurants the other nights, and now after 2 weeks of dining out, Gatto remains our favorite - the caprese salad and the spaghetti carbonara were the best around, and the warm bread they serve with dinner unbeatable. The nicest thing about Gatto is that is... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend, and we were not disappointed..... obviously not, because we then went back every day for the rest of our holiday! The food was incredibly fresh and delicious. And the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, when we were indecisive on what to order, they would be kind enough to help make recommendations........ More

We were recently on a trip to Italy, and on one of our free afternoons after touring with our travel group lucked upon this lovely eatery. We were on our way to meet the rest of our travel group for dinner and thought we would have just a small plate of food to share before our dinner later. I believe... More

Both, the food and service were very good. We had home made pasta that has met our expectations. An excellent choice if you want a good meal for a decent price.

Reasonable prices, good food. My calzone was mammoth, and I could only eat half. The dough was excellent and the filling a good balance of ingredients/flavors. Service was good. Would definitely go here again, and recommend to others looking for a good, not too expensive meal.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
