We stumble upon this place on our way down from Michelangelo square. To put it short, it’s like a fancy canteen, simple, modern minimalist decoration. Friendly staffs, first thing I asked him was “how does it work?” And he replied, “sit down, relax and I...More

If you have patience and can look past the pretentious (and some may say bad) service, the meal is totally worth it. We had some of the best dishes of our lives at Zeb.

We enjoyed sitting in the window seats. The owner and his mother make a good team. If you show some interest they will provide a lot of interest to you. Reservations recommended~

This was our best surprise while visiting Firenze/Florence. Very small restaurant but great in taste and wine combinations. Absolutely recommended: Ravioli with pear combined with one of Zeb’s own wines
