Recommend by our hotel but from the beginning I was suspicious. Place for tourists with cheap food and also disgusting. I never ate so bad in a Restaurant. Far away from Italian food!

We had some lukewarm lasagna, which was just okay and tortellini with ham and truffles. The quality was not the best, not a wow meal. The waiter seemed hurried yet there were hardly any customers. The location sucks people in, but it is worth a walk to find somewhere more worthwhile to spend your hard earned money.

We came here because of the high rating reviews and we were not dissapointed! My husband and I were greeted by a friendly staff, served by a super friendly waiter (with bkk tattoo haha). We were recommended to try their seafood tagliolino and chocolate cake and so we tried. They are sooo, sooo good!! Will surely put this restaurant on... More

We went early and had the inside to ourselves. The restaurant is as quaint as can be as far as decor. The beef carpaccio was pretty good. I had the tortellini and it was ok. My wife had the lasagna and it was cold inside. Cold? I can microwave pasta in the US.

My wife and I enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Za Za. We liked the venue as well and even the tight spaces. The staff was very helpful. Get there early for Italian dining or you may well have a line as this is a popular spot. It's also reasonable.

We had lunch the first day in Florence and enjoyed it so much that we went back for diner. Their food is great and the prices are as reasonable as any place. Good wine as well. Located in the Plaza Centauri. (The central market.)

My husband & I ate here three times during our stay in Florence. The first time we sat in the outside area. It was Feb. but with the heaters the outside was more than comfortable. The issue I had was that people smoke even though the area is somewhat enclosed. However, on the other two nights we requested to sit... More

I saw the reviews and was pointed towards the trattoria by my hotel. I ordered pasta with tuscan sausage which was over salted and just passable then I ordered ossabuco with porcine mushrooms and beans , the meat was cold and gelatinous and not nice the beans were ok . A real disappointment, they could tell I wasn't happy with... More

Lovely restaurant, strongly recommended by a friend of mine. Pretty pricy (Euro 40 per person), as all good restaurants in town, to be honest. My tagliata (grilled beef, lower quality cut than tenderloin) with truffle cream was good, but not unforgettable. Two friends ordered a pretty expensive Fiorentina steak (1.3 kg) and, again, they said it was good but short... More
