Great location to take in some lunch, some beer, and a glass or 3 of a nice house wine. Great service and simple but tasty dishes. Florence is unique in how they have managed to create Al-fresco eating. Basically,
Francesco Vini, like many other restaurants commandeer (legally of course) to create al-fresco space. Seems odd at first, but you will find that this restaurant has a terrific feel.

We found this restaurant on our last night in Florence. Great food and service and our waiter Stefano told us all about the history of the building as well. We would have eaten here more often had we discovered it earlier. A must for any visit to Florence and do try the pepesco beef - delicious.

Our group of five wandered into Francesco Vini after a concert at Santa Croce and even though we didn't have a reservation we were taken right in (there are also tables outside, but it was a little cool in an evening breeze so we were happy dining inside). We found many items on the menu to satisfy us (two vegetarians who actually prefer eating vegan, two meat eaters trying to avoid wild boar, and a lover of all things truffle) and appreciated the waiter's help picking a good and affordable bottle of wine. We received just the right amount of attention and help when we needed it. We recommend Francesco Vini and would go back again.

Food was very good. The bill included what I consider to be extra charges. There was a 5 euro charge for Table 5-no idea what that is?Coperto charged and not listed on the menu. I aways leave a decent tip. I heard the waiter grumbling about others leaving a "cheapo tip". What should he expect when they make up charges on the bill.Total bill 90 euro, 2 glasses of cheap wine, Pasta, salad and veal and 1 desert tiramisu-excellent.
