The ambiance is wonderful, the Chef is a magician and the waitress was impeccable. We had a wonderful time. Would return in a jiffy. The food was just right and service was courteous and consistent, although the place was packed.

Quite touristy place. Very good service, maybe a bit slow due to heavy affluence when we were there. The bistecca was clearly overpriced for what it was. Seasons vegies not convincing either. Great tiramisu. Get a table far away from the entrance during winter months...

Visited the restaurant for lunch following a recommendation by hotel concierge. The food was amazing, the best we ate in Italy. Couldn't believe the flavours . The meals were a little pricey compared to other restaurants but was certainly worth the experience.

A friend recommended this restaurant to us and we loved it so much we had dinner here both nights in Florence. We arrived right when they opened both nights and had no problem getting a table. The service was good (not overly friendly) and the prices were very reasonable. The food was delicious! We had the vegetable soup (our favorite),... More

Recommended by our B&B we went to try the Cipolla Rossa for supper on our first night. A bustling bistro close to the centre the welcome was warm and friendly. Good for gluten free people. Over the three nights we tried a wide range of main courses and sampled starters and puddings. We kept mostly to meat; pork, veal and... More

This place is busy, busy! If you can, make a reservation or you may be disappointed. I think the prices are exactly what they should be, Don't expect things to go fast, everybody is busy. I was lucky to have two meals here. It is open for lunch and dinner, closed in between.

We had an excellent dinner in a normal price. Do not forget to have a reservation before! All dishes were delicious, service a little bit late..

Suggested by our hotel receptionist and we were happy to follow her advice. So glad that we did as we had a great meal. Quite a large restaurant but long and narrow and so it didn't actually feel that big. In fact it felt a cosy place to eat. Great service and wide selection of food choices. Meal was wonderful...

My wife and I had a lovely dinner at Cipolla Rossa earlier this week during our last night in Florence. We had intended to eat at another place but found it was closed and we found Cipolla Rossa by chance while walking in the Duomo/San Lorenzo area. The food was perfect,especially the veal, and the service was most caring (... More
