If you gp off the well beaten tracks in Florence this is where you great the traditional tuscan cooking at its best. Wide variety of choices, very genuien ambience the true family restaurant. Well prepared dishes, plentiful and tasty. You even get the choice of 4-5 different olive oils.

The first meal was so good that we returned two nights later. Meats are delicious and perfectly cooked. Pastas were equally good. The prices are exceptionally reasonable and service very pleasant and helpful. All in a neighborhood, comfortable setting.

Trattoria Osvaldo is a family-run business that offers home-made, traditional Tuscan dishes. We attended a private event there and were so impressed that we went back on our own.

They have traditional Tuscan food, made with great care and delicious seasoning. We ordered goat which was stewed in spices, potatoes and spinach... More

If you love rind, then try this restaurant and you will not regret. It is a familiar ambiente and service, but very good quality in food. A good local wine offer is also there.

After receiving a recommendation from a local winery, our family of four ventured by taxi from Florence to Trattoria Osvaldo. It was just what we were looking for, away from the busy tourist areas, with wonderful traditional food! We sampled the antipasti bar, fresh and delicious- it could have been our entire meal! We shared a great ravioli and then... More

I stopped in, initially because I was visiting the nearly Villa I Tatti, but although it is the only restaurant in this village, it does not disappoint!
