Superb food! The 4 of us each ordered something different, + calamari for the table. The risotto was killer, as was the calamari!! Pasta to die for, and the location was great after "doing the culture thing" and walking all about. Good service, and though crowded, it didn't seem to bog down. Go!!!

When we first arrived we were ushered downstairs to a large room which we initially had all to ourselves. This lasted for about 5 minutes until a large tour group arrived. Soon the place was packed. Our appetizer and pastas as well as the wine and desert were all very good . And even though the place was packed the... More

We were directed to this little restaurant by David, a young waiter, we met as we were looking lost. It is hidden away down an alley near Piazza della Signoria and it proved to be great spot for dinner. I had a salad and boar stew, which was very good, and my wife had the seafood soup, which was excellent... More

You have not lived until you've had a Florentine Steak at Buca Poldo. Only 60 Euros for two including a bottle of wine. Do it rare, it will melt in your mouth. Found it in an ally not far from the old bridge with the gold shops. Look it up for directions. Well worth your time, you will not be... More

Nice place, not easy to notice, you have to step away from main street. Were hiding from rain and started discuss about dinner and Italian kitchen, while one of waiters were smoking. After were guided in were served in best possible manner. Portions are big, do not hesitate and ask just tree steaks and ask to cut them for share.... More

We had fantastic food, excellent service and reasonable prices given the great location. The place is in a secluded alley so is beautiful and quiet. It was recommended by our hotel - very happy that we said yes. Absolutely worth the visit.

This restaurant is located just 50 yards off the Plazza Della Signora. There are 4 tables on the narrow street (10' wide) beside the restaurant and about 10 more across the street when you can eat outside. The staff is limited in English but we got along fine. While the Osso Bucco is great so were the other dishes we... More

The food was ok when it finally arrived but we waited an hour for our first course! So I don't recommend if you have more sightseeing planned.

The food is really good, the place is nice - outside. But the staff is a little bit confusing, it makes you wait a lot for your meal.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
