Service was prompt and friendly. We ordered ravioli of the day and risotto of the day, both of which were superb.

Pepo was a wonderful experience in Florence that was recommended by our hotel. It is a small trattoria in the San Lorenzo area that fills up quickly. The grilled steak was expertly prepared and the osso bucco was one of the best I have tried. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Prices were very reasonable considering the high quality of...

Nice place with basic menu. There's no a wide offer but what we tried was tasty. We shared a plate of gnocchi and a mixed plate of ham, cheese and foie. It was our cheapest lunch in our Italy trip. No complaints.

Cloth table covering and great house wines at a reasonable price but there are other better and expensive bottles. This a place townies eat. It is in the piazza off the... More

We decided to go here for lunch as it had good reviews. When we got there we were a bit doubtful though because there was just one other couple in there but 30 minutes later the place was full. Lovely lunch beautifully cooked and nice and hot. We chose pork fillet with a balsamic glaze which was tender and sweet... More

This was a very cute restaurant with friendly service and a welcome glass of Prosecco which was a nice touch. Group of 3 all had pasta which was ok for an easy cheap dinner but we have come to expect more flavour in our Italian dishes so came away a little disappointed.

We tried to get in here Friday night but the line was out the door so we made reservations for Saturday night and went to Za Za's instead for a mediocre meal. Pepo has a brightly lit interior and terrific food. Our daughters ordered cream of pumpkin soup. When I threw a gnocchi in a spoonful from my wife's appetizer,... More

We were given a free glass of champagne when seated. The menu is is Italian and English. The fried chicken/rabbit/vegetables dish was excellent as was the Peposo (beef stew in black pepper... More

My wife and I came across Osteria Pepo this yea despite the fact we have been to Florence many times (just because the restaurant we liked changed the ownership this year). The place is very busy, we came shortly after 7pm and they were full already. The only downside - the house wine is served in bottles and is quite... More
