Today I would like to share with you my favorite restaurants in Florence.
This is the perfect place to stop for a quick lunch while sightseeing the city. From Signoria walk trough the Ponte Vecchio, turn right and walk for 140 meters, on your right you’ll see a small window with a red sign. The bar has a deli case with classic Florentine bar foods such as Pappa al Pomodoro, Ribollita, ravioli, and salads. A wide assortment of Pecorino cheeses from across the Tuscany region are also made available. Step in and seat by the window overlooking the Arno.
Borgo San Jacopo 48r. Tel.: 055 26 45 569
Located in the heart of city centre in a XIV century building. Two small dining rooms on the main floor and a more rustic dining area in the cellar downstairs. Book in advance. Ideal for dinner.
Our suggestion is a romantic walk by the river after dinner.
Via del Parione, 74 / 76 R. Tel 055 21 40 05
Cibreo is one of Florence’s best restaurants, serving food, and particularly good fresh fish, cooked with real flair. Menus change daily, and include a lengthy selection of appetisers, first courses (soups and polenta) and main dishes (fish, meat). Desserts are delectable: chocolate cake, cheesecake, and Bavarian cream feature. For half the price, eat at the less formal Cibreo Trattoria, right next door, which serves a limited version of the same menu at communal dining tables, what’s more, you don’t have to book.
