This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel, and given we were exhausted following arrival from the US, the fact that it was around the corner was what drove us to come. How fortuitous! We had no idea how good the restaurant would be!!

The ambiance is warm and friendly. The staff is outstanding. The maitre'd was extremely helpful and patient. He made SUPERB recommendations. My wife and I both had the Filet La Buchetta - a generous cut of Filet Mignon in a brandy/Gorgonzola/walnut cream sauce. Delirious! Spinach and roasted potatoes rounded off the meal and were perfectly prepared. The chocolate cake was rich, warm and totally satisfying. There was a good wine list to compliment the dinner options.

There is a monitor in the dining room, where the chef's prep table is displayed. It was fascinating to watch the dishes "come together" with ease and then see the final product leave the kitchen.

We will be back! I've GOT to try the "Angels and Devils Gnocchi" - another La Buchetta favorite.

We loved this place, went early because we did not have a reservation and we got a great table, awesome service and super great food. The video feed from the kitchen is great fun to watch, especially if you love cooking. Of course they are known for the steak and it was to die for but the Truffle pasta I had was great also. I thought the wine prices were very good. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked here for dinner to celebrate my brother-in-law's 65th birthday and we weren't disappointed. The whole experience was amazing - including the brilliant waiter who went through the menu for us and described each dish and how it could be adapted to my dietary requirements (refreshingly they don't have a menu in English, they explain everything to you to help you make your choice), the TV screen showing the food being plated up in the kitchen, the mouthwatering lumps of beef being brought out to diners for weighing and agreeing the price before cooking, the really lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and, of course, the delicious food! I had booked online and mentioned my dairy intolerance and the occasion, and they remembered both without prompting. The owner was very gracious and appreciative of our thanks even though it's clear from the reviews that they get these all the time. It was quite simply the best all-round dining experience we have ever had. We just wish we lived in Florence so we could go there on a regular basis!!

Came here on the recommendation of a friend and so glad we did! The meal was incredibly delicious, staff was helpful and friendly (the owner is great and came to check in on us multiple times, making sure we understood the menu and were enjoying our experience), and the ambience was truly splendid. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a delicious and classic Italian meal!

Coming over the river across the Ponte Alle Grazie, this restaurant sits very comfortably on the corner of the main road Via De' Benci. The staff all very friendly and professional and our waiter Paolo knew the menu backwards and also his choice of wine was the best of the holiday. The restaurant is not too big but very popular with tourists and locals so there is always a great buzz. The food was cooked to perfection and the amazing thing was to watch it being prepared on the TV in the restaurant which was linked to the kitchen, that says a lot about the confidence of the chefs.
This restaurant really should be on the list of tourist attractions when visiting Florence, make sure you visit and very advisable to book before hand. Buon Cibo, Buon Vino, Buon Amici (Good Food, Good Wine, Good Friends).
