We had a most delicious meal at Touch Florence. The taste and presentation were unbelievable. Much care and effort in every dish. One of the memorable dishes was gnocchi with squid and octopus which just melted in your mouth. The guinea fowl was tender and flavorful. The meal ended with a canoli with pistachio filling. They have some wonderful options... More

My wife and I had an excellent dinner at Touch Florence in March 2017 ... there are a lot of tourist traps in Florence, but this is thankfully not one of them! We shared the Ravioli stuffed with veal--it was wonderful ... my sliced beef was great, Florentine steak cooked precisely the way I requested. Minor niggle: the steak came... More

My son and I had heard about Touch for a private cooking class from friends who had visited the restaurant. The class far exceeded our expectations. A trip to the market followed by incredible insight from chef Matteo. Hands-on class and lunch were a highlight of our trip to Florence. We also dined at Touch a few nights later and... More

Missus liked some parts of the meal and I liked the other. The artichoke salad was incredible. Red wine was superb. They need to mix up the texture of the food. Al very mousse like consistency from starters to dessert. Not sure whether I would visit again.

Not gourmet or Michelin star worthy but nothing to complain about here. It strikes me as a group of young people having fun and having some success while at it. Friendly wait staff, nice ambience, good food. I had a spicy Chianti, a smooth ricotta cheese zucchini flower, and the mix it yourself spaghetti carbonara.

Recommended by Four Seasons Hotel nearby and so had high expectations. However, I was a bit disappointed as I almost could not find the entrance. But this feeling changed to delight soon after I was led to a window side table and served with a free glass of wine. We tried the tasting menu while I opted for the wine... More

I went to this place as it was close to our apartment. I had a pumpkin soup for a starter. I must admit, it is the best pumpkin soup I had in my whole life.
