    My wife and I have been to Florence 2 or 3 times -- this is our favorite restaurant: Acqua Al 2.

    Also, you might try this food tour. 396 5-star reviews on Trip Advisor!

    A little pricy, but we loved it. Completely worth the expense. Our guide showed us around the city and gave us great recommendations about all the best restaurants, plus her personal favorites. Our only complaint is that we should have taken the tour sooner on our trip so that we could go back to all the best places!

      Acqua Al Due is not to be missed! You MUST try the balsamic and blueberry steaks. Both of them. Trust me :) · (0 likelikes)

    My favorite spot to eat in Florence was Mercato Centrale. The ground floor is like a market, selling produce, meats, seafood and cheese. The upstairs has lots of different food stands available. They are open early and close late. Great place to try lots of different things.

    Ahh firenze... Worth every pound I gained when I lived there for a year :)

    1) Best food with a view: Golden View Open Bar. It doesn't get any better than sipping a glass of prosecco with open-air views of the Ponte Vecchio right beside you! Try the pasta bolognese and the tiramisu.Golden View Open Bar

    2) Local gem: Trattoria Dante. This side of the Arno, called the Oltrarno, has much more of a local flair. Tourists rarely explore this side of town, which is a huge mistake -- it's such a great area. The pizza and friendly service at Dante's is absolutely fantastic. This was my weekly pizza place and I am still friends with the owners.

    3) Best pesto pizza (and hole in the wall): Pizzeria Spera. These guys have won awards for their pizza. Seriously. And this photo is pretty much all you need to know. (Pure bliss in pizza form :)Pizzeria Spera

    Buon appetito!

    I would go with the local's recommendation! We also liked Le Mossacce, a block south of the Duomo. When you are seated you will most likely be seated with other people. It is a small restaurant, so they fill the tables which is a great way to meet new people. We always looked for places with lines of locals out the door. Also, know that if you sit down to eat it is more than if you stay standing. A bit different from America, but fun! There is no such thing as fast food at the restaurants--unless you find a McDonald's. Be prepared to wait for the bill. If you are in a hurry, figure out what you owe and leave it with the waitress instead of waiting for the bill.

    i live in Florence so this is what i think: avoid tourist places. Try out Trattoria Da Burde (VIA pistoiese 154) a bit far from the city center but real tuscan food as i could cook it at home. Go to Trattoria Omero for the best steaks (via pian de giullari 47) and Trattoria La Gargotta in Bagno a Ripoli for fab meat and a great view over the city. If you like burgers with chianina meat go to Drogheria Bar & Grill (piazza annigoni) with great choice of wines and generous dishes! hope you will enjoy your stay ;-)

    Check out the San Lorenzo Market. On the first level you can find where they serve amazing (and cheap) hot food. Or you can try Trattoria Il Contadino for lunch or dinner.

    For fantastic cappuccino, I would recommend Chiaroscuro. It's a block or two from the Duomo and has the best cappuccino and pastries. When we stayed 4 days in Florence this was our must-do for breakfast each morning.
