We were given a tip from the girl across the street at the wonderful shoe store, but this is another story.
We came back that day with two of our friends and the place was packed. We were told that reservation is in order. Next day we asked our hotel concierge to make a reservation. The earliest available was 8:30. Well, usually it was a little late for us, but what the hell! We were not sorry for the wait!!! This is an amazing place! If you can , share the dishes in order to try the most. The real Tuscan menu! We were in truffle season , so it was reflected on the menu. White beans, ravioli, veal steak, pans cotta, everything was of superb quality! We are coming back tomorrow!!!!!!

This amazing comfortable restaurant has been in Florence for 34 years. Marco‘s father started the restaurant and Marco has been working there since age 15. Emailed Marco for reservations a couple weeks before we came, and he had everything lined up perfectly. The food, all of it, as we ate lunch and dinner here was fabulous! Lucca is a fantastic waiter also. Reservations are a must for dinner. Small, intimate, ideal! Roast pork, rabbit, pumpkin stuffed ravioli, salads - all outstanding! Don’t miss this when in Firenze❤️Ciao

Our cab driver gave us this juicy tip - and this restaurant was everything he promised: authentic, crowded but cozy, friendly, tons of GREAT food.
From the greeting at the door, to the last handshake goodnight, we had an indescribable feeling that we had been here before.
Sitting next to a German family, we ordered the 22 oz specialty with beer and bottled water. The photos are silly and show us pretending to be full - but it was pure delicious bite after bite until it was done. We even had room for their homemade panna cotta.

I read the reviews before eating here but, given my experience, can't for the life of me see why anyone would rave about this place. After spending 6 days in Florence and having enjoyed a number of restaurants there is no way Cinghiale Bianco is the best of anything. In fact, it was without a doubt the worst meal we had the entire time in this amazing city. You can easily find many establishments providing a better dinning experience within a short walk of this tourist trap. Really. You can and should walk away.

We loved this place so much we returned twice in three days. The food is great, service friendly and quick, and the energy really enjoyable. Authentic Tuscan cuisine, great wine, nice people. This is our new favourite in Florence.
