I was Disapointed... the Osteria was very recommended but, the balance price x quality is totally incompatible, unfortunately.

I had a two night stay in Florence and this was the only place we really wanted to ensure we made. It was not disappointing. Actually, it was fantastic! We went early lunchtime and were lucky to get a table. Food- really really good. So much choice. Good quality, large portions and delicious. Wine- really really good! Staff were helpful... More

We visited this this restaurant for dinner following a recommendation in a guide book. I think we must have caught them on a bad night. The room was unwelcoming and not very comfortable, although the waitress was pleasant and helpful. We were sat near a rear passage and it was uncomfortable cold. The first courses were okay but the mains... More

Excellent spot for a casual and cozy dinner. We enjoyed the bistecca and roasted potatoes. The waiter was knowledgeable and fun. If you're looking for good food in a casual spot, try this place!

As an Italian I am used to good Italian food, and this place was a disappointment. The service was bad, they didn't know anything about the dishes they were serving. We ordered simple steaks, thinking it would be easy, but it took more than 45 minute in an empty restaurant. The steak was well done and dry even though we... More

Dashed into this restaurant during a downpour. What a find! Good choices on menu and suggested wine gorgeous! Courteous staff and very helpful as none of us speak Italian very well. Very reasonably priced. We will definitely return and would recommend this place to all lovers of good food and great wine!

This small, cozy Italian restaurant really delivers. It is a quaint, authentic Italian eatery with wonderful food. The concierge at the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. They have a very attentive staff to help with the menu selections and the home made pasta was delightful. The owner recommended a very nice red wine for... More

I have booked my anniversary dinner s at this restaurant for many years...what I really loved were the renaissance recipes of the experienced and talented cook Alessi, that made the place absolutely unique in Florence. The food was so delicious and each recipe had its explanation and history on the menu. Now the restaurant has turned into an average trattoria:... More
