Quite possibly one of the best meals we had on our Italian cities tour. The staff were extremely friendly, the food absolutely delicious and plenty of local dishes and wine to sample. As a vegetarian struggling to find variety in Italy, this restaurant offered the most interesting and different options - I can recommend the pear fagottini with fondu. My... More

We went for dinner and we shared a cheese "tagliere" with honey and figs/truffle jam (wonderful!). Truffle pasta and wild boar pasta were delicious. The staff is nice. Worth a try!

Had one night in Florence and wanted great steak. Two restaurant choices were closed. Went to reliable Trip Advisor and found La Cantinetta close to our hotel near the Duomo. Really enjoyed our meal. Small restaurant with minimal staff but they did a great job and our dream of Florentine Steak came true.

One serving for two people was enough to share.. Than we ate pappardelle with wild boar meat sauce and fagottini with cheese fondue and pears!Lovely main courses with... More

Very good food, we came with friends so we are sorry for being noisy, my friend took pasta and pizza, they like it very much. I took beef carpacio and bisteca fiorentina. We also ordered a wine and beer, they were all so good. The design in the osyeria is very good and it's playing very calm slow music. I... More

I know we're in Italy, but we fancied something other than pizza or pasta. After wandering over to santa croce and back getting more frustrated by the minute, we stumbled on this place and took a chance. And boy am I glad we did. It's a lovely little place not far from the piazza duomo. We got tempted in by... More

We came for dinner to celebrate our birthday. Ordered the Florence steak - a 1200 kg of T bone on a hot grill and a good bottle of Chianti wine. The crevice was really good, the music in the background was plesent pleasant.

We had a lovely,relaxed evening here. Our food was delicious, the staff extremely friendly ( our waiter helped me find a statue that my dad had a photo taken in front of over 70 years ago!) and the cost very reasonable. We have no hesitation recommending this restaurant and will definitely go back when we return to Florence.
