After reading all of these wonderful reviews, we decided to try this restaurant and honestly can say it was by far the worst meal I had in the two weeks we spent in Italy. There are so many other GOOD restaurants in Florence, it makes no sense to eat here. Atmosphere: Non-existent, can we say ambient lighting? I felt like... More

My wife and I have food allergies so eating while traveling is tricky sometimes. Our research led us to I Toscano. Not only were they able to feed us, they fed us extraordinarily well! The family was warm and welcoming every day and was sure to send us to another restaurant they knew could accommodate us on the day they... More

A great traditional restaurant that serves Gluten free pasta!!! I was happy to be given appetizers options too - we tried two of them - but the pasta was what I came for and it was delicious!

We are the only non-Italian speaking customers - always a good sign. The food was very good, atmosphere friendly, and service appropriate.

An inexpensive restaurant close to the railway station with tasty food and friendly service. It also has the special feel and attention of a family operated restaurant.

My husband is gluten intolerant and we had a hard time finding places to eat in Florence. A resident told us about this place and our last night we tried it. The food was FANTASTIC. And the service was very good. We went there around 7:30 and it was rather empty. But around 8 it started to fill up, mostly... More

The attention to coeliac requirements were excellent and the food was authentic home cooked Italian. The main cousrses were varied and regional, also delicious, and the desserts were excellent! We were really delighted. The... More

Very good chicken " alla maniera di Fabio",very tender and succulent."Spaghetti cacio e pepe" had a little bit too much pepe (pepper) and a little bit sparing on the cacio (cheese).Really nice house wine. Service was contradictory,as it was helpful but shocking the way our "grazie" didn't receive any reply sometimes. I would recommend it anyway.

Sixth sense brought me in, course after course of my favorite picks brought me back the next time I was in town.

If you want to try authentic Italian food then I suggest you eat here. The food is unlike the main restaurants where all the tourists go. I had the cheese and pear pasta it was divine!!! The menu consists of lots of authentic Italian dishes and they are cooked to perfection... really enjoyed my meal here!!
