Description: Lungarno Bistrot overlooks the Lungarno Guicciardini. Its outdoor area opens onto a stunning backdrop of the Scarlatti square right in front of Palazzo Corsini. An excellent opportunity to enjoy this fascinating view for lunch or dinner. Inside, the atmosphere is modern and classic at the same time, cosy and warm. The large open kitchen allows you to see the chef at work. They prepare fresh pasta, different types of bread and desserts every day. Seasonal products are the base of our traditional Tuscan menu, as well as fresh fish. On request we can prepare vegetarians and gluten free dishes.

I took my parents here for their anniversary dinner on a visit to Florence. It was recommended by our host. We weren't disappointed. The food was good, the bread was great and the atmosphere lovely. The staff were attentive and the limoncello at the end was a nice touch. They had a wonderful anniversary dinner. It's on the pricier side, but was great for the occasion.

To start, the staff was lovely from the beginning. We were greeted with prosecco as we awaited our table to be prepared. The wine was exquisite, as well as the meals. Each presentation was wonderful, and the tastes following were suited as the same. I only wish they had given my fiancé and I some grated grana or parmigiano with out primi piatti. Although not extreme, it is the ONLY negative I have to say about this restaurant.

Just returned from a wonderful experience. The Lungarno Bistrot is a very different restaurant in Florence. Service is a big plus. Any dish can be made gluten free. We had a gf pasta with lobster (astice) that was just amazing. Delicious!! The waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. He just paved the way to a wonderful meal. The wine selection, the welcome with a courtesy prosecco and the ending with a complimentary vinsanto. The food was delicious, the restaurant is very well designed. The lighting, the noise, seats, tables. All so comfortable and well thought. 1 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio. And, surprise: it is not expensive!! I'd say it is very low priced. See my "conto" picture.
We've been in Florence for 1 week and wish we had discovered this gem before. We are leaving tomorrow but we can help others have a wonderful experience in Florence. We've experienced 14 restaurants and this is way away from the others. If you are or plan to visit Florence, this is a must!!

We went to the Lungarno Bistrot this evening based on the excellent reviews we read in Trip Advisor but we were disappointed. The restaurant felt as if it wasn't quite sure what it was trying to be. It wasn't a bustling bistro and it wasn't fine dining either. The food was OK, some dishes were lovely but those were very average. The waiting staff were OK but not up to the standard the restaurant lead you to believe it would be. There was a general lack of attention to us as customers and we left feeling we had been somewhat short changed.

On our 3 day break in Florence we decided to have one really good, more expensive, meal and we decided on this restaurant having walked past and been attracted by the menu. Were we glad we did! I'd be surprised if there were many better places to eat in the whole of Florence. Both my wife and I chose the seafood tasting menu. Everything from the starters to the main was cooked to perfection and the staff were friendly, chatty, helpful and informative. If you are visiting Florence make a booking here, it's fairly expensive, but the food justifies the price and you won't be disappointed.
