I absolutely regret visiting this restaurant, as a couple we did share "Florentine steak (the only florentine cooking is “rare”)" and although we did ask temperature to be Medium we've got a super rare steak. Besides that, our steak was about 700 grams from which...we barely got 300 gr of meat. Most of the "steak" was fat and bones. (as you can see on the second picture). For approximately 55euros (price of our steak) I did expect better cut and not mostly fat and bones. For example 3rd picture is how Florentine steak should look like... Def. not garbage piece of meat that we had 👎👎👎👎👎👎More

We had to pay coperto for 2 Aperol (8€ each, coperto 1,5€ each), what a scam! We didn't even get a tissue or a salty snack like in other bars or something else. So tell me what the coperto is for?! The Aperol didn't taste...good anyway (tasted like white wine instead of prosecco).More

A busy place but we were seated in the shade (as requested) within five minutes. We were attended to promptly. Food arrived within 10 minutes. Cooked fresh. Lovely pappardelle with boar sauce with chunks of meat (not mincemeat). Salad was good. House red was good...too. No complaints. Reasonable price too. Go again. RecommendedMore

Wonderful local spot on the square. Great food and service. Come hungry because the food is delicious. The wines were from the local area. Genovese reds were my favorite. Save room for ricotta cheeses.

Our group of 6 happened upon this place during a rambling Florence walk-about. Sitting in a nice and not-to-busy piazza, it was a great stop for a quick drink & snack. Such a relaxing setting that my wife & I separately went there another day...for lunch and had a really good Quattro Formaggio pizza.More

I came here two times to eat during my visit to Florence. It was both times really good, beyond my expectations. It is also in a very cosy neighboorhood at a nice square. I would really recommend it. They are also vert friendly here.

Excellent food, especially the boar ragu and raw burrata pizza. Staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant which is in a piazza, felt less touristy than others in Florence during the summer. Well worth the visit over the river

I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur of Florence and it's restaurants, since for more than 20 years I visit at least once a year. I'm a great fan of old traditional trattorias, less known to tourists, but am also a great fan of Piazza...Santo Spirito. This year we discovered Trattoria Borgo Antico in Piazza Santo Spirito. It was a very busy Sunday lunch time so we waited quite a bit to get a table outside, but the trattoria doesn't have classical closing time at 14: 30. I've enjoyed very much the classical Tuscan pappardelle al ragu di cinghiale and my husband fell in love with pasta al pesto rosso. The food and wine were absolutely worth waiting. I know the restaurants don't give away their secrets but very much like to know the ingredients of that pesto rosso. We are definitely coming back next year. Borgo antico entered my special places in Florence listMore

One of our favorites over the last 10 years. Wild boar Ragu over pappardelle pasta, spinach ravioli, and penne with 9 hour sauce. This restaurant is in one of our favorite areas Santo Spirito. Other side of Arno in quieter piazza. Must try.

Checked out the place with the family when we went to Piaza Santo Spirito for lunch. The table they gave us had a nice view of the church ⛪️ Waiters were nice and friendly and made us feel comfortable and the plates they suggested were...great and tasty! I’m vegetarian and the penne pasta with pesto I got tasted fresh and creamy, recommend it. I have to talk about the dessert I got though which was the mix berries cheesecake it was 🔥 Definitely worth a try!More
