The best T bone we have ever ate! Me and my fiance decided to go and try a original italian Tbone. And drove almost 600km from home (Croatia) and another 600km back just for a great, juicy and tasteful Tbone! It was worth it! Hope to go again soon! :-)

The place has a 80s looking. This bring you in a typical "trattoria toscana". The bitrcca here is excellent and the price is reasonable. The staff takes care of you

I really enjoyed eating there. The steak was great. It not easy to arrive there without a GPS though. Language may also be a problem if you don't speak Italian or any other language coming from Latin.

Your don't come here for anything other than the beef, either as Bistecca Fiorentina or as Tagliata, both of which are done traditionally, and with expertise and a first class product. Forget the tourist Florence, this is on a side road, off a side road, at the back end of Fiesole - so a car is essential. Nothing from the... More

What a wonderful experience. If you want to go to dinner where the locals go this is the place. Reservations are needed. We went on a Thursday night and it was full. You can request inside or outside. I suggest outside if it is not to hot. We were staying near Florence, it is about a 20 to 30 minute... More

A Florentine friend Took us here to show us a wonderful evening and during our 5 week stay in Florence it was our best evening and meal. Beautiful drive there as well. We loved the mista fritta verdua especially the sage leaves and squash blossoms. The liver crostini on polenta was ethereal and the Tagliata outshines any beef I have... More

I brought a group of 14 Americans and 2 Italians here. I remembered that the meat was good from when I lived in Italy but this time it was truly exceptional and many said it was the best steak they had ever had. Even people who do not like to eat their meat rare ate it and enjoyed it. The... More

A drive through the mountains with some of the most beautiful view of Tuscany and Florence will lead you to Trattoria Tullio. Our visit was truly a feast for all of our senses! GO. This restaurant is family owned and operated - sister and brother, spouses and children all working together in a restaurant and attached "deli" that has been... More

Way off the beaten path, but worth every hairpin turn. Family owned and run, the food is top notch and the entire restaurant is a labor of love. Brother and sister, respective spouses and children cook and serve here and live here as well. Great house wine, great house olive oil. Multigenerational talian families abounded on our Sunday afternoon visit.... More
