Best European food near Florence, Province of Florence, Italy

February 16, 2020 Giuseppe Pratt

Find out what European restaurants to try in Florence. History and art converge in the open-air museum that is Florence, the capital of the Italian Renaissance. A typical day can consist of charming walks through historic streets, alternating between popular shops with local products and savory bites of food. A stroll along the river Arno will delight anyone with the colors of the Ponte Vecchio. Relax at night with a lively aperitif in Santo Spirito, a beer in Piazza Santa Croce or an amazing panoramic view from Piazzale Michelangelo.

Great food and great staff. Our meal was wonderful, my ravioli with fresh black truffles was excellent. Dessert and digestivo were equally good. This was such a pleasant experience especially after a truly crappy lunch at a tourist trap. The ambiance was pleasant and we were very pleased with how helpful the waitstaff were throughout our meal. We have one day left in Florence and have decided to return for our last night.Thank you very much for your review from all the staff of Gustavino Duomo

The steak at this restaurant is out of this world and I’m from Texas where we know beef. The ambiance is unbelievable. Eating dinner next to Santa Croce a 700 year old basilica with Michelangelo is buried inside. Food, service, and ambiance is all fantastic. Highly recommend.Thank you for your review from the staff of Bisteccheria Santa Croce

Il Nutino

Reviewed By Nakamae

Located in the heart of the city, on a super touristic street. We were a little reticent to enter thinking that it may be a tourist trap and a rip off. But not at all. Their pici pasta dish and specialty pizza were very good. Avoid Ceaser salad. It's doused in mayo. Friendly service, too.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this charming restaurant. The staff was friendly and answered all of our gazillion wine questions. Many reviewers praised the Angels and Demons gnocchi, and we loved it. It was delicious and I would recommend ordering it.The Caccio e Pepe was one of the best I've ever tasted. I opted to get it without truffles because I personally find the scent of truffles overwhelming. It was fantastic. The restaurant is only a few blocks away from where many tourists dine but it's definitely worth a visit.

Fattoria Rossi Firenze

Reviewed By jennyjackass

What a memorable experience! The food was delicious and locally sourced. The server was so delightful and engaging. He clearly loves interacting with tourists and talking about this family farm. He took the time to explain the significance of each dish we were tasting and provided a learning experience for making garlic bread! We absolutely loved eating at Fattoria Rossi.

Run by young locals who grew up in the meat industry, these guys are passionate about their food and it shows in the way they present and deliver their menu. The food itself is absolutely delicious, particularly the meats. The waiter is knowledgeable and assists you in pairing wines with the meal. All in all, an amazing experience, away from the tourist traps, highly recommend!

Artisan sandwiches filled with salami Tuscan dishes, cutting boards and croutons. sale of exclusively Tuscan wine, organic oil of the territory, jams and honey from small local producers.

Reviewed By emjigrs

We were warmly greeted, advised and helped by the owner who made the effort of speaking French with us. He also had menus in a lot of different languages which is very rare. My first time trying panini wasn’t disappointing at all, it was delicious! Cheap, tasty, made with quality ingredients and large portion too! Bread was crispy, there was a lot meat (not too much bread). Also very well-located in Florence. I can only recommend and would totally go again and try other panini and boards/plates. Thank you!!

SENZ'ALTRO Bistrot

Reviewed By xpatsuitcase

We arrived a bit early and the restaurant was empty. They had a problem with the credit card machine and let us know we would have to pay by cash. That was ok for us, and as the restaurant filled (with many locals) it was ok for many. Sensz Altro serves food beyond the ordinary, served more like a michelin starred restaurant than a neighborhood bistrot. The choices on the menu are not large and it would be a poor choice for a picky eater, but for a foodie....go for it!

Mangiapepe

From the idea of a florentine young man and a calabrian young woman, the most "spicy" tuscan-calabrian panini place is arrived in Florence!

Daniele and his wife Valentina run the most incredible restaurant in the city of Florence. I always have a conversation with Daniele and he makes my experience one of a kind. They both truly care about their customers, and make the best sandwich I have ever tried in my entire life. If you are visiting Florence and are looking for a great spot for a meal, go to Mangiapepe for both the taste and the experience. This is my favorite place to eat in all of Italy, I recommend to anyone looking for a great meal and an unforgettable experience.
