The Fiorentine steak was the hit of the trip! Three in our group shared it, and they got to choose the cut and see the steak before they seared it. It was absolutely delicious! There are only a small number of seats here, with two...More

Amazing meal. Truly unique experience for me and my wife. Come hungry because the portions are generous but the steaks are MASSIVE. Pretty old school as the owner comes out and asks how hungry you are and for how many people before returning to the...More

Great experience and awesome steak. Also good homemade pastas. Would definitely go back. Make sure to make a reservation and expect to sit at a communal table. It is a lot of fun and the owners/waitresses make the atmosphere good. Not a romantic restaurant but...More

it's an interesting place with communal seating and authentic atmosphere and one of the best steaks I had in my whole life. Appetizers and side dishes were also outstanding and the bill surprisingly (especially in comparison to Tuscany) modest.

I would say depends if you speak italian? The owner speaks good english but the staff not as much. Our host where we were staying phoned and made a booking for us 2 days ahead.

The Osteria ACQUACHETA, open for over 25 years, has retained the characteristics of the old Tuscan taverns. The kitchen, sharing tables, one glass for water and wine, and not least an authentic welcome and true, typically Tuscan, make it a local flavor ... you feel at home ... Managers, CHIARA and GIULIO, have maintained intact over the years the tradition of pasta, bread, cakes and homemade preserves to which are added succulent steaks cooked Florentine embers of wood. Local, small and very popular, is located in the upper part of the old town, a few steps from the main square.
