We were just walking about town, not sure where to have lunch and doubtful we would get a good seat anywhere. This place was just around a corner and we were happy to find a nice outside table. The staff was friendly and fast. However, not enough vegetarian options. All I could order was a Spaghetti and pesto sauce. Garlic... More

Great place for lunch or dinner with inside and outside seating. Full menu with many options that will not disappoint. Loved our waiter who was fun and sang while he served. Great place to kick back and relax after a long day of sightseeing.

Had some excellent food and service here. Hunters platter amazing. Best Carbonara easily as good as mine! And no cream in sight thankfully. Luigi deserves a mention for his great service and humour. Highly recommended.

This was the first Italian restaurant we tried while in Italy and I can't say that we were very impressed. Our pasta dish was satisfying but my other family members did not care for the pizza and they love pizza. At least we tried.

Very recommendable. We had to wait 15 min because terrace was full. In the meantime we were gift two glasses of champagne. Welcoming maitre was very nice. Once sitting we ordered eggplant alla parmigiana to share and rissoto and bistec alla fiorentina as second dishes. Everything was outstanding. Bistec was the best we found in the area in relation quality-price.... More

We were shopping in Florence and asked a local which restaurant they recommended for good pizza and pasta for lunch. They recommended this one and it was a fine recommendation. Great service and plenty of locals eating here, which is always a good sign. We ended up coming here on two consecutive days for lunch. The Chianti is good and... More

Description
The "Grotta Guelfa" is a necessary stop for those who are passionate about good food and love the most authentic dishes. They are dishes that remain tied to tradition and their territory but, at the same time, do not turn away from new tastes. Patrons can have their dinner in the cosy and small lounge or in the wide porch with air conditioning and lively decoration, accessible year-round. The restaurant is located near the old "Palagio dei Capitani di Parte Guelfa". From this corner of Florence, famous for its typical medieval structure, it is possible to start an amazing tour among the artistic beauties of the city.
