The food here is fantastic-especially the rosemary bread, the manicotti, the ravioli, the halibut, and the creme brûlée. The environment could improve (it’s often waaaay too hot in there), and the service always seems slow. It’s definitely worth the visit as long as you aren’t...More

Wasn't sure the first time. 2nd time I decided to review. The choppino is great. The crab crusted salmon is better, the bread with butter and pesto is amazing. You really can't go wrong from what I can tell. 5 stars.

We live in Florence and really enjoy dining at Restobar. Besides the excellent food, they have a wonderful wine list, a full menu with a bit of an Italian flair, and a very friendly staff. The place can become kind of noisy inside and so...More

Food was good, however, my husband didn't love his seafood pasta, my parm halibut was nice. The menu on here is outdated, there has been a significant price increase. Staff was wonderful.
