We choose this Restaurant because of the recommendation in the Web, from a Swiss couple. During our 7 Day stay in Florence we never had a bad restaurant as this. This is not a Restaurant, Trattoria or Osteria or what ever it is, its only a Snack Bar. Doesn't matter what People here are eating.

Every time we are in Florence we visit La Ghiotta for lunch or dinner.The place is recently refurbished,but the staff is the same☺️Great pasta dishes for 6-7euro only,go for the penne ai grancio or quattro formaggio.Also try the tuscan appetizers with liver pates,fabulous.Vino di casa is pretty good.

I went back to La Ghiotta some twenty years after last time, this time with my other half, so she could understand why I love so much Florence and its cuisine. I was happy to find that the food was still like back in the day, although the place had just been renovated. For a comparatively low bill we had:... More

Fresh food good ingredients and a lot of dishes to choose. Every Friday they do fish dishes. In lunch time it is very crowded since a lot of locals are going there for lunch and also university students

Found this restaurant through this TripAdviser site. Ate dinner as well as lunch, like three days in a row. Pasta dishes I ate were cooked just right ("aldente") and salad was very fresh. English menu available. My favorite was custard pudding I got as dessert for my lunch. Totally loved it!! Pizza dishes my friends ordered were also great.

This was a very quick resturaunt. Most of the staff we met spoke English quite well and the pizza and salad was delic6. My husband got the steak and it was really chewy and not good at all, yet quite expensive. We would come again, just don't get the steak!

My friends and I would come here every weekend during our study abroad in Florence. It's definitely a local hangout with excellent food, so come here to avoid eating at a touristy restaurant. The Ravioli Ghiotta is their signature dish, but all other Italian specialties are fantastic as well! Expect large portions of delicious food for some of the cheapest... More

We came here after our host recommended it, saying it was cooking "like grandma makes." After trying it, we can't help but agree. Affordable and delicious dishes that had us coming back three more times on our four day visit to Florence. The seafood linguini was our favourite dish that we tried!
