I visited with my friends and had the best meal from our time in Italy - the service from Mario was top notch; he answered our many many questions and recommended the perfect wine for each of our meals (without automatically going for the most expensive).

I ate a nice pasta dish with a cod sauce. This is supposedly a local dish. It was very tasty. I had a nice Chianti with it.

I had to write a review of Le Fonticine given the experience we had. What a great local Italian joint in the heart of Florence. Although I couldn't venture to do the Florentine steak, the t-bones were insanely huge! If you want a great steak though, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I had the beef ossobucco and my wife...

My husband had... More
