BEST ITALIAN IN FLORENCE! They also have the best bread in florence, including the olive oil and balsamic. The staff are super friendly, and the atmosphere is casual and welcoming. Order something off of their specials list and you will not be disappointed! I lived in Florence for 4 months and would come to this restaurant at least once a... More

Want a restaurant with really good food at a reasonable price? Look no further. Add to that a super friendly staff and Osteria Il Gatto E la Volpe is the place to go. You do not speak Italian - the wait staff speaks English- you want to try your Italian- go for it they love that too. We ate there... More

If I had to pick one meal to be my last meal before I die it would be the four cheese truffle pasta from Gatto. This place is UNREAL! I went with a big group, and everyone was able to find something they loved. It was reasonably priced, the bread was amazing, and the staff was excellent. 25/10 would recommend.

... would be enough to bring me back. So it was heavier on tourists than locals on a late Sunday afternoon, but the smells coming from the kitchen told us to stay. We're so glad we did! The pici was homemade and the four cheese truffle sauce was sinful. The tagliolini with wild boar ragu was flavorful and tender without... More

Honestly... this place was great. Recommended by a friend who studied abroad in Florence. We ordered a few appetizers even though the bread with balsamic was so good. But we were introduced to buratta cheese. OMG. You would Never try peaches and cheese but the appetizer was really good. I had the gnocchi with chicken. My friends shared the fettuccine... More

A Cat and a Fox from Pinocchio - are the heroes of this fantastic Osteria! My colleague told me that there were very tasty in the Osteria. And we decided to find it. It's situated in the very center, and it's really super! Osteria is open all day long - it's very convenient, and you don't need to reserve table... More

Found Il Gatto by walking around Florence and were pleasantly surprised; from the food to the friendly staff. Food is great and, as posted by others, there is a wide selection. Though this would not be considered a fine dining establishment, you will be hard pressed to find an upscale restaurant that has all of the attributes of Il Gatto... More

Il Gatto is a great restaurant to eat at if you want to try a new Italian dish without spending tons of money on it while you're still unsure if you'll like it or not. The menu is extensive, and though the food is good, it probably won't be the best meal you have in Italy (unless you have only... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
