Le Fonticine was definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Florence. We actually went two nights in a row - that is how good it was - both the waiter (Mario) and the food was exceptional. Next time we are in Florence this is a...More

Stayed at the Hotel Corona D'Italia right opposite this quaint Ristorante, so it was convenient to go there for dinner one night. I desperately wanted to try their duck risotto that I read about here on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, the duck risotto is only available on...More

It was almost as enjoyable to see the couple in the adjacent table devour their steaks as to consume our own. Lots of good things from which to choose, but the steaks topped our list.

This was my first night in Florence and I was traveling alone. I had the anchovy appetizer and the tortelloni and both were exceptional. Perfect portions, nice ambience, and they didn’t try to rush me out even though I was by myself. Two thumbs up!

My family went to this restaurant for the last day in Florence. The staff was very polite. The pasta and meat dish was delicious. They give us fresh bread. PS they do not have pizza in their menu.

Our first day back in Florence. Enjoyed a special meal and incredible service by the staff. After a long flight and train ride it was a wonderful evening.

It has no windows, but all the walls are covered by funny kitschy paintings and ceramic plates. The food is fine - we tried different starters (ribolita is perfect) and pasta. Service is attentive and with a smile.
