After a full day of site seeing in Florence, we stumbled into Trattoria Pallottino. What an amazing find! Server was very welcoming. Was a mixture of tourist and locals. Had a wonderful opportunity to interact with everyone. Had the steak which was grilled perfectly on a bed of arugula with olive oil and rosemary. Still thinking about this meal the... More

When we went it was fully booked but they offered us a table as long as we left before 21:30, we went around 19:45 so we agreed as we had plenty of time. They have plenty of typical florentine food. We tried ribolleta, pappa al pomodoro, artichoke souffle and peposa. This last one was the one we liked the most.... More

Dear customers, Thank you for choosing our trattoria and for the judgment you have attributed to us. We are happy to read that you enjoyed our food, sorry for the most serious waiter, I know him as a child and I can assure you that he was born like that. Thank you and thank you for the next opportunity. More

Nice tuscan fare. It was cold outside but the food made us feel warm and at home. Tried the day specials and enjoyed immensely. Nice dessert too. Try it!

This is a no fuss, cheaper place to eat in Florence. It was suggested to us by our Airbnb host. The food was good, although the pork was a little overdone for our liking. I would recommend if you are looking for a cheaper authentic place to eat. Nothing fancy but my meatballs were delicious. On a side note, I... More

Great menu: You can either choose 'Costata', or a more simple 'Zuppa', in every case You'll taste real and good food; house wine will complete Your meal. Look for "esercizi storici fiorentini"-sign on the window and You'll find A place to stay.

Tuscany is know for its wine, soups, and meat and this place has it. Been advised that the best authentic Italian joints are off the beaten tourist paths, which is where place is located. Definitely go for the Tuscany veggie soup and steak with arugula & grana padano cheese.

We were heading to another restaurant and suddenly saw the Trip Advisor sign on the window. We took a peak inside and liked what we saw: a good balance between relaxed and formal; people of different ages (including many locals) happily eating meals that looked very attractive. It was perfect: the service (the owner provided advice without pushing), the food... More

Typical Tuscan old trattoria born in 1911, just a few steps from Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza Signoria. Rustic, informal, with benches and wooden tables and an open kitchen. Sixty seats in the two internal rooms and the outdoor seating area in the pedestrian zone. Always make a home-style regional cuisine and economical and we specialize in Florentine steak cooked to coal.
