It's a simple restaurant, with simple menu, but everything that you order is very nice. You should probably make reservations, but the day we went there we were lucky to find one table for us.

We tried this iconic Florentine dish in a few restaurants during our 3 week trip to Florence in September and this was the best by far.This is a small casual restaurant with friendly staff. We had one of the best meals of our vacation here. You need a reservation but it is worth the extra effort. I highly reccomend L'Brindellone.

Off the tourist map but the excellent name has got around. No thrills and no gimmicks just good food and good service. You must book in advance so don't just turn up expecting to get in the chances are you wont. Why because it is good. I can recommend you go. We had the florentine steak and greatly enjoyed it.

Neighborhood location across the river from the touristy hotels. This place had been recommended by a Florence resident who is a foodie, so our expectations were high. Decor is nothing fancyl, just a neighborhood trattoria, but comfortable. And most of the people there seemed to be locals, not tourists, so that was a good sign. We ordered the speciality of...

A small family run restaurant you really should try and get to while in Florence. Making a booking is essential as it's busy and it's a small restaurant. They are closed Monday evening, which we didn't read prior to walking across town to it. The menu is simple with only a handful of dishes, which a true sign of a... More

The food was excellent, we ate spaghetti al tartufo and a wonderful Fiorentina, with fiori di zucca fritti and fagioli all'uccelletto. The waiter was very friendly and kind and the place is really authentic and warm, not to mention the fair prices. If you want to avoid turistic traps this is the way to go. Until next time :)

Had an excellent dinner here just recently. Didn't have reservations so we showed up around 7.30pm which is the opening time. If you plan to visit later, reservations re highly recommended. The bistecca was sooooo delicious. Cripsy on the outside, soft and juicy inside. We had another steak the following day at another restaurant but it was no way close... More

Friendly host, lovely traditional Tuscan food - rabbit with pasta, T-bone steak and cheesecake. A litre of house wine for €10. The restaurant is superb value for money.
