Amazing selection ranging from wild boar and stuffed rabbit to pizza. Lots of seating and a bit off the well-worn path, but worth the effort. Great waiters that speak flawless English but help you muddle thru Italian. We had pasta dishes, meat dishes, killer buffalo mozzarella, and great pizzas. House wine is fantastic. 6 people under 100 euro.

I used to come here years ago when it was a lovely, friendly sandwich bar. Now it is a really lovely restaurant serving quality food. Great wine list & friendly staff. I enjoyed it so much, I went twice in two days.

Francesco Vini is one of the best restaurants we've gone to in all of Italy. Fabio, the owner, is so personable and welcoming. We had a great time getting to know him while eating the most delicious food you can find in Florence. In addition, it is very reasonably priced. If you're looking for delicious and authentic Italian food at... More

Florence is our second trip of our food tour of Italy, and our dinner here was the best Ealing we've had so far! Fantastic service, incredible food, and lovely local wine to go with it! Staff are delightful and recommend some amazing dishes, the desserts match up to the very high standard of the mains. 10/10!

Honestly one of the very best meals we have had in the whole of Italy. Waiter was friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure we have a fantastic evening - brilliant recommendations, changed things to meet dietary needs, and incredible food. Would most certainly recommend this place to everyone. Anyone. Please go try and have an amazing time!

This is a very welcoming restaurant near to the Basilica di Santa Croce in Firenze / Florence. Eat inside or out, the atmosphere is pleasant in either case. I'll happily eat here again the next time I go to Firenze.

Family run restaurant with a very friendly and happy atmosphere. The waiters could not be more helpful and knowledgeable. Our waiter had lived in London for three years and spoke excellent English. We were recommended this restaurant for its great Florentine steak and it was superb. Perfectly cooked, 1.2kg so ideal for two people. Large and well priced wine list.... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
