Our experience at this restaurant was simply magical. The owner was very welcoming and took time to explain every single detail of the menu. Plus, every meal was prepared with fresh and delicious ingredients. It was so good that we came back two days later.

One of my best restaurant experiences in florence. Good simple italian dishes made from great produce and high quality ingredients. Clear focus executed perfectly.

Great atmosphere. Dont be fooled. The place is only a few months old and there is a cozy garden and tables in the back of the restaurant.

The owners, husband and wife are great hosts and very professional in their service and awareness. They go out of their way to give their guests a great experience.

Go here if you want a real italian food experience. There are plenty of other great local restaurants in the Santo Spirito area but this is probably the best.

We are here on our final night in Florence and really enjoyed it. The menu was in Italian only, but the owner explained everything on it and gave us some great recommendations. We had the flan antipasto, the spaghetti and paccheri pasta, and shared the Florentine steak. It was all delicious. For dessert we had the tiramisu and the millefoglie. They were some of the best way to had all trip. The staff was wonderful and the owner was very warm and welcoming. I'd highly recommend trying it for a great experience.

At first we were skeptical because the restaurant was just a few meters from our apartment.
But it turned out we did not need to go far as Osteria del Borgo was simply one of the best dining experience we ever had.

The owner and his wife are such nice people. You can tell by just looking at them talking to clients that are good with people. Being tourists and without any notion of Italian, the owner went through the whole menu and explained everything to us.

The food was just excellent, top notch, and this is far from the first Italian restaurant we’ve been to.

Do not hesitate to come to Osteria del Borgo. I know we will come back.

Plus, the place is run by truly good people.

This was our best meal we had in Florence. We actually went for dinner two of our five nights in Florence because the food and customer service could not be beat! The waiter/owner was very personable and assisted with interpreting the menu and making recommendations. I HIGHLY recommend this for dinner! Come hungry the portions are generous and the prices are extremely fair. We loved it!
