The quality of the food, service and environment was just excellent. I tried the 'fiorentina scottona kobe' and the Fiorentina Chianina. They were both delicious but the Chianina is a sensorial esperience. I would come back to Florence just to EAT this meat again and again!

My friend and I were looking for the best place to get Florentine style steak for her birthday. Upon hours (literally) of trying to look through trip advisor reviews, we finally decided to book Trattoria dall'Oste. We definitely made the right choice. The atmosphere of the restaurant was amazing, the staff were more than kind and the food was wonderful.... More

I had lunch in this restaurant after the Florence marathon before taking the train home. I had to wait at least 30 minutes to seat but it was well worth the wait. I had some amazing ravioli and a friend of mine had the steak (they have several sizes and he took the small one). Both plates were amazing. I... More

A place for Grilled Steak lovers. You get to decide how thick you want your Fiorentina steak to be. We had the 1.2 Kg for 3 persons. Medium is recommended. We ordered the Medium Rare which was a bit too raw for us , and the waiter was accommodating enough to re-heat bringing it to medium, still tasting quite good... More

This is where I learned about the Florentine Steak -- They have a very reasonable meal price prior to 6:00 pm (20% off). Four of us (and an infant) had a good meal for under 100 Euros. A bit irritating was the attempt of the waiter to "upsell" our choices. By 6:30 pm when we arrived the restaurant was already... More

The restaurant has a nice feel to it, but does get very busy so you may have to queue. We were lucky and only had to queue for 5-10 minutes but we got there just in time as the queue got quite long after that. I went for one of the speciality steaks which was one of the best steaks... More

Nice, warm, comfortable, relaxed ambiance, great food, great steaks (Florentine steaks). However the wait was a bit long, even in the slow season part of the year (February / March). No reservations are unfortunately accepted, so show up early which might help with the wait.

Convenient location near to the station. Great local steaks. We had a massive 1.2kg "T" bone, between us. It was tasty. Local red chianti. 3 courses before 6pm for a 20% discount

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
