My wife, two neighbors, and I were staying at the Hotel Franchi (see separate review) and ate dinner at Osteria della Bistecca the night before flying back to the United States. The décor was average but we were not looking for a fancy place. The waiter saw us and did not acknowledge us for at least 5 to 10 minutes.... More

Amazing steak, nice wine, lovely place. You must come! Waiter is the owner and gave us another bottle (1.5 lt) because we finished the first one. Very local place.

Go here. If you are in Florence and want to have the authentic florentine steak with the locals. Go here. If you want your house red to come in a 1.5L bottle and have the name of the place on it. Go here. Side note. The T-bone steak is €4 per 100g. However the steak starts at 500g so prepare... More

The food was great with reasonable prices but what i really liked about the restaurant was this super cool dirty harry of waiters who set tables like a boss. We ordered a glass of wine, he came back with this huge bottle and said he will charge us by how much we drink. We did not understand how he would... More

Bistecca a go go! It should be the name of this restaurant. Even if from the outside it is not so inviting, please don't care about the furnitures, they look really old but I can assure it is a typical Italian "osteria", a pot-house where you can eat with local people served by a really pleasant innkeeper. The "bistecca alla... More

Osteria della Bistecca is a small steak restaurant near in the residential area closer to the airport. If you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn or the Nil Hotel. Prices are extremely reasonable. The food is great and the service super friendly. It is not a fancy restaurant, but, who cares if the food, the service and the ambiance... More

I was born in Florence, even if actually I am living in Prague, Czech Republic. All the time I come back to Tuscany, I can not miss a dinner there. During the week, cause on the weekends the restaurant is closed. That is not just a restaurant but a total experience inside the italian culture. First, the place, it is... More

After a week in Tuscany, we have been eating at awesome small restaurants. This restaurant was recommended by the hotel as well as receiving high marks by Tripadvisor. We entered and the owner provided a menu but then proceeded to give us a menu of what was available. We ordered but when asked for risotto, was told not on the... More
