When in Florence, there must be bistecca ala fiorentina! Tucked in one of the quaint side streets near the Uffizi is this very charming restaurant that displays humongous cuts of beef for the bistecca. We were ushered in and med with such gracious service. The highlight, of course, was the bistecca, done to perfection! Perfectly grilled, very tender, and so... More

Good meal in the Tuscan style served with the human touch. I can recommend the risotto and the Montepulciano Dei. Acceptable prices.

Excellent meat selections if you are in need of a change up from straight carbs but want an authentic meal! Good service and house wine!

We had the Florentine Steak again which was beautifully cooked. Excellent service with a friendly waiter. Caprese salad gorgeous too - the buffalo mozzarella tasted divine. It is an expensive restaurant but worth every penny and were given free limoncello at the end!

We had dinner here on our first night in Florence as it was practically next door to our apartment. We had a lovely meal here and dined in the outside area at the front. Service was very good and the food was of good quality and reasonable portion sizes. Recommend to give it a try, as there are so many... More

This was our most expensive meal in Florence but I wouldn't call it our best. That should probably knock it down even more, but it was a pleasant evening in the end. We got a late start to looking for someplace to eat - not a bad thing in Italy - and almost thought this place might be closed as... More

The staff at Francesco Vini...especially the owner, went out of their way to make our visit one to remember! A small group of us visited for the night before our wedding, and were treated like royalty!! A private tour, complimentary pre dinner cocktails, and even an offer to use their ancient wine cellar for wedding photos the following day!! We... More

Amazing steak! Best I've ever had. Service was exceptional. And don't forget dessert, ice cream with Amaretto over the top, so delicious...

Fabio and Jodi and their staff make you feel like part of their family. The food options are extensive and, after sampling most, it is all fabulous! Excellent wine selection. It's a "don't miss" experience in Florence!
