It was really cheap ( 100 gr bistecca? : 4€ ) and very delicious. We had a really good time. I recommend you to eat steak. Also spaghetti with tomato sauce was very delicious.

This was great because we arrived in Florence starving, and got a table really fast. The food came out so quick and it's two courses for 10 Euro! Great if you're balling on a budget! The food was large portions and we left stuffed.

Somewhere in my tacky American tourist mind, I dreamt that every waiter in Italy would be red faced and jolly, singing Puccini as they dished out huge bowls of pasta. Well Zio Gigi is as close as you're going to get to living out that...More

We went here for lunch and it was a fixed menu/price for 10-12€ per person. We were so stuffed after eating the delicious pasta dish that we didn't have much room for the vegetable side and caprese salad...each! This is a great little spot for...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
