This is a tiny restaurant that offers one of the best quality beef we have ever tasted even comparing to Argentinian stakes! The service was simply great and the wine was perfect. The traditional biscotti from Florence with the sweet wine is a must do...More

We skipped the tourist hype and enjoyed a very nice lunch. Tucked away close to the Ponte Vecchio, they welcomed us in and treated us well. Food and wine was very tasty. It was nice to relax and to have a very nice lunch.

This restaurant and its owner are super rude. Just dont go there. They kick you out if you are a foreigner to give place to others. It felt like they were being racists to us.

The only aspect i can judge is the welcoming, Which was inexistant. The 3 employees in this tiny space simply ignored me for 7 minutes, so i left. Pathetic. There are tons of trattorias and osterias with that understand hospitality.

I ate many times at Buca dell’orafo and it’s always worth it. The location is suggestive and it’s one of the best places to eat traditional Tuscany food in Florence. I suggest the tagliolini al tartufo (when it’s period), the trippa and the Fiorentina. One...More

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
