Zio Gigi (uncle Gigi) is another simple, tiny little place on a back street. The menu consists of all the usual suspects, antipasti, pasta, meat dishes, including the famous Florentine steak. Steak with balsamic vinegar sauce sounds odd, but is delicious. The antipasto plate is...More

We first visited Zio Gigi seven years ago. So, while in Florence again, we decided to find it. No trouble locating it as it sits just behind the Dumo. The atmosphere is as we remembered it - close tables and fun to dine. The owner's...More

Zio Gigi was recommended by a friend from Lucca. What a wonderful recommendation. Zio Gigi is a very authentic, family run trattoria. The plentiful food was delicious. For only 10Euro, one has several secondi and primi piatti from which to choose. Our server was attentive...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Found the food very tasty and reasonably priced. Patronized by mostly locals so I knew it had to be good. Loved the additional attraction provided by the singing of the owner.

our hotel recommended this restaurant and we loved it so much that we ate there twice! The food was so good, but the service and singing made us return! Such a fun restaurant and we were the only tourists there....a plus!

We ate at Zio Gigi on two of our four recent nights in Florence. If we'd known about it earlier we'd have been there on all four nights. The food, service and entertainment were all superb. Bistecca is an absolute must. Loved it!!!

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
