We wanted to try this place since it was recommended to us and had great reviews. It's actually quite a large place and can seat a lot of people. However, when we got there, the host took us to the basement where it was this...More

Upon arriving in Florence, we walked there for dinner. Absolutely delicious. The branzino was outstanding, the pasta cooked to perfection. Happy and friendly staff. Will be on our regular list when in Florence.

After a two-week trip to Italy, during which we ate a loooot of good food, my wife and I reminisce about this one more than any of the others. Possibly more than all of the others added together. If you’d like a really genuine top-notch...More

Heard about this restaurant so decided to check it out. Best decision ever ! We had the pleasure of being looked after by Mr Giovanni himself. He sent over some complimentary dishes as he realized our table was vegetarian and he wanted us to try...More

Perfect service, perfect food. We've rarely ate so well in such good environment. Perfect cook of the bistecca alla fiorentina and the roast potatoes. The baby pork was very tasteful. We really appreciated all the little things around dinner (offered prosecco, offered almond biscuits, included...More

Good to hear. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

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

At L’Osteria di Giovanni we not only maintain strict allegiance to traditional Tuscan dishes (including many antique recipes that are not commonly used these days), but we also experiment with new flavours and combinations, whilst remaining faithful to local and season produce. Popular new dishes include smoked duck breast on rocket salad and dressed in balsamic vinaigrette, tortelli stuffed with pear and pecorino, with leek and paprika sauce, pici with sausage and kale, and lamb slow-cooked with artichokes. We stronly believe that your restaurant experience should be unique and satisfying on every front. We look forward to welcoming you one day to L'Osteria di Giovanni.
