Our first night in Florence and we were tired and stumbled into this restaurant by chance. Lucky to get a table without booking because we were early. The food was outstanding, interesting and delicious. My daughter said the gnocchi was featherlight and the flavours on our plates were fantastic. The house red was great too, really complemented the food.

We had an incredible evening at Il Santo Bevitore. The atmosphere was lovely. It was perfect for a romantic dinner. The staff was very kind - very accommodating to help us secure a dining time despite not having a reservation (we just strolled down the block to a neighboring wine bar until our time). The food was delicious! I am... More

Having been a few times before we went for my big birthday last August and were really well looked after so my wife decided she would like to go back for her (not big) birthday in February. The staff remembered us and my wife was really spoilt with brilliant service - we had a complimentary platter of ham as well... More

As main, we both ordered the Mezze... More

We saw a recommendation for this restaurant in a guide book. It said we should get there when it opens at 7.30. We did and only just got a table - because it was midweek and well before high season. Where to begin - the dining rooms are quite plain but in a very tasteful way - dark wood panelling,... More

While walking along Lungarno in Florence, we felt an immediate attack of hunger (that often happens when you get lost in the beauty of surroundings) and decided to cross the river in an attempt to find some place to lunch at. That is how we ended up in Santo Bevitore. The interior is simple but elegant, with a touch of... More

This restaurant came highly recommended to us, and it did not disappoint. The food is solid, the service quick and warm. We had the tartare, seasonal vegetable fondue (the pecorino fondue was so SO good), riccioli pasta with spicy nduja, and the sea bass. All delicious! Our hotel made the reservation for us, and it appeared to be difficult to... More
