On a day trip to Florence, we were looking for a place to eat that was not too tourist-y and reasonably priced. We also wanted to be reasonably close to the train station as we had a scheduled departure from there. Although I usually stay away from fixed enus, this one had offerings that were appealling, very reasonably priced AND... More

Food portion was huge and best of all tasty. Generous servings of well seasoned clams and mussels. They have some toys to entertain the toddler which was a great plus point for me.

I was looking for a restaurant that is specialized in sea food while in Florence and decided to check Lob's on a week-day evening after work because it was close to my hotel and had rather positive review on tripadvisor. The place was relatively crowed for 7-ish pm italiy time, as I did not know about the place I ordered... More

We started off the meal with nice, big, and fresh oysters (they have been the best oysters I've eaten to date). The decor is really unique with paintings, fish nets and many small details to really make a great ambiance. The service was great! Very attentive to your needs, and helped recommend wine based on what you ordered. I had... More

As Florence is more a meat city than fish, we searched out a good fish restaurant and this I found on trip advisor. It definitely met our expectations for a relaxed venue ( casual rather than formal dining) but great quality fish, superbly cooked. Great staff and with a glass of prosecco on arrival. Centrally located . Got our recommendation

We ate at Lobs Fish Restaurant in Florence three times - the food was wonderful! Fresh fish, wonderful pasta and great service. The hotel was a 5minute walk from our hotel (Mercure) and close to the Mercato. Nice selection of wines, too! Great value for the money.

Is the question we asked ourselves after we had eaten a pretty average and a bit over-priced meal. The quality of the fish seemed fine, but the cooking was a bit hit and miss - some good, some not so good. We arrived at the same time as a large party and a couple of other tables so the service...

Amazing menu, perfect service (Claudio), great wine, incredible food. Seafood was great- perfectly cooked on octopus; nicely done bruchetta with tomatoes and shrimp; perfectly cooked homemade spaghetti and tomato sauce. Everything served hot. Desert and cafe to round out a perfect meal. Creme brule and a complimentary lemon liquor mixes with lemon sorbet in a shot glass.

Interesting menu, and decor. Proseco, soup to warm the body. Rainy evening would not allow us to sit on the terrace. Needed a finger bowl after consuming my prawns.
