So, even though it looks like a nice family owned restaurant, our service was a bit rude and our "bisteca alla Fiorentina" was nothing more than seasoned with salt and pepper (nothing very original and clearly worth the big price...), we were also charged with a nice"cover charge" that was based on a service of bread that we clearly told...

Hello I am very surprised whenever I meet people traveling without knowing a bit about the customs of the place. The "cover charge" is normal in restaurants in Italy, so there is no bad practice, and even if you do not want bread does not only include bread as you think it, but also: tablecloths, equipment and dressings, it is...

We visited this restaurant for dinner following a recommendation from a friend. The area probably doesn't look like the best in town, but we were hugely impressed with the food and service in Da Ginone. It's clearly a family run establishment, and all were so friendly and seemed genuinely happy to have us visiting! The food was delicious. There was... More

I keep returning to this place in Florence. High quality food at reasonable prices and not far away from the city center.

Stumbled across this lovely homely little Trattoria. It felt like you were eating in someone's front room. Lovely atmosphere and the food was simple but absolutely delicious. I never thought I would say this about a salad but it was so tasty. We also had ravioli which tasted so fresh and a pork dish. The puddings of chocolate cake (melt... More

We came early on a Monday evening and had an okay starter with pasta - even though I did not actually get the dish I ordered this was also fine: home made pasta with different cheeses. The main course was truly delicious: long-cooked beef on a sort of crusty bread base, with a lot of meat flavour. Service was friendly... More

A wonderful experience at this trattoria four years before had us excited to return to enjoy a dinner again, but we were sadly disappointed. Anticipating another delicious local meal and friendly service, we made reservations more than two months in advance for 8:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Several weeks before our arrival, we were emailed that they had overlooked... More

I have been going to this restaurant regularly over recent years and it never fails to come up to standard. Not a moment's hesitation when we arranged a dinner for 40 there recently and guests all made very positive comments about the food and atmosphere. Expect a very warm welcome from the Civale family.

It was a very best Fiorentina steak of 4 restraunts in Florence. We asked to bring us homemade local wine and it was perfect. Nice place, good service, tasty meal and reasonable price.
