We meant go the the famed trattoria alla dell oste but the queue was long and they didn’t take reservations in generell. The waiter said he couldn’t say how long the waiting will be but guessed less then an hour. We were two persons. So we decided to opt for a restaurant close to our hotel. On our way we passed by alla griglia and the set menu for 30€ per person sounded like a good deal ( I don’t get people who get furious about not getting 20 percent off the set menu and then go and write bad reviews. Not fair. It clearly states the 20 percent off when reserving a table via fork doesn’t apply for set menus. Live an let live people! It’s a whole lot of meat at food for 30€).
Meats on the antipasti platter were fine. The steak was tender inside but crispy on the outside. The dessert was also nice, Creme brûlée was flamed at the table. Service was friendly and not slow at all.
The potato’s were average.
So here’s what you get for 30€ per person, minimum order two for the set menu, otherwise single steak with potatoe 18€):
2 Prosecco
1 bottle of water
2 glasses of wine
Antipasti consisting of different meats
1,2kg steak (sliced at the table) served with potatoes
Dessert of choice From the menu ( classics like tiramisu, pannacotta , strawberry cake, Creme brûlée , fruit Salad and others)

I can’t say I am a specialist in steak, but I do like steaks and we eat steak at home, in restaurants in Germany and also had in the states and Kobe beef in Japan.
This place is definitely a good alternative if you don’t feel like waiting in line for ???? Dunno the waiter couldn’t say

Booked online for dinner. Head waiter was good with speaking English and found our booking.
We got the €60 for 2 ppl - antipasto, Florence style T-bone, glass of red and bottle S.Pellegrino.
Food was A++
Waiter who served us looked like he was constantly annoyed.
We ask for the bill and did not get our discount. Couldn't be bothered asking the annoyed waiter so just left. They gave us biscotti on the way out but no sorry for the no discount.
This was a shame as we tracked it down and the 20% drew us in.
Live and learn.

Dear customer,
I want to thank you for leaving your opinion, but I also want to remind you that the 20% discount was not applied because it is not included in the fixed price menus.
You yourself in the review write that you have ordered 2 menus from 30 euros per person, here's why you did not get the discount.
Thanks so much.

Very good food and wine, but as we were recommended by our hotel and given a discount for this reason it felt as though we were treated as second class customers. Little attention and lack of proper service e.g. No bread offered although cover still charged
