not in the best part of town and not an elegant restaurant, la cantinetta is a honest tuscan trattoria, overcrowded attimes, meaning that the tables are too close to each other but also that the food is great,. What do you eat in a typical tuscan trattoria ? Obviously La Fiorentina ! A great steak, well coked and served cut... More

This little restaurant served us one of the best tagliata (slithers of grilled meat) I have ever had...the flavour was amazing, and the vegetable sides we chose to accompany it (potatoes and radicchio) were equally delicious. The atmosphere was very pleasant be the service very good. Highly recommend this place!

Went here as a party of 8. my pals are from this area so we knew it would be good. As with so many places it doesn't look mega from the outside, but inside its warm, friendly and inviting. The special they do is a thinly sliced fillet steak (cooked as you like) this can be sevred with mushrooms and... More

It is off the beaten path and you might therefore be the only non-Italian in the place. You might also be the only one who speaks English.... BUT so worth it!! Absolutely the best Fiorentina in Milano. The family that owns and has ran La Cantinetta forever are super nice and so is all the staff. If you have any... More

We went there just to have a Fiorentina. It was juicy, cooked to medium-rare perfection and delicious. Accompanied by a Brunello di Montalcino and side vegetables it was a perfect meal. Booking recommended as it's very popular. The place looks rustic but it's the real deal.

The very simple and outdated design may fool you, but it is the food you should come here for. We had some fantastic "bistecca fiorentina", prepared over the open fire, and felt a little bit like on the Tuscan countryside. Delicious!

I must admit this was a huge surprice, one of the best places we have eaten. I have tried many places, Noma in Cooenhagen, Bucco in Berlin, Kong in Paris, Balthazar in Ny, but this was autentic Italien. All costumers were local Italien, no tourist. Good price Amazing food and the best service in Italy.

Inside the restaurant is quite big, I think it has been extended various times. It looks like the place is run by a family, mother behind the cashregister, father in the kitchen and the sons serving. The menu is only available in Italian, with a specialisation in meat, grilled on charcoal. I started with bruschetta which was delicious and Had... More

If you want to have a real "fiorentina" and u do not want to drive till Florence, this is the place for you. Have it along with a Chianti Classico and potato as side. Great value for money.
