We came across this place when we were walking around in the area. I had the pasta with potato, mint, pancetta, prawns and pumpkin because it sounded a bit different, it certainly didn't disappoint, my only want was to have more! Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fairly quick and cheap dinner.

Was recommended to visit this restaurant by a local florentine, which I can understand why they would enjoy it. Great restaurant for locals as you could not fault the food. When we arrived it was very confusing and the staff were not much help to tourists (which is understandable as it's a bit far out of the tourist sights) the... More

Thank you so much for being our welcome guest and especially compliment you've made to our kitchen ("the food was lovely") and our fresh pasta. And thanks to have highlighted that our prices are average compared to your experiences. Sorry you thought and had the feeling that our staff is not accessible for foreign tourists but, forgive me, probably it... More

Florence has many dinner choices. We ended up at Tamero on the other side of the Arno river where they make incredible pastas. We asked chef John Marco to cook us anything he wanted. Whatever was fresh. What fun and what great food. Octopus was fresh in black ink futucini. The atmosphere was hip with graffiti on the walls. The... More

Someone recommended this place to us for homemade pasta. It was really good. We stopped for lunch and I had the spinach ravioli. The atmosphere was really unique and the staff was super friendly. Definitely check it out.

Restaurant located in Florence downtown. Meat/fish, pasta and salads on menu. My boyfriend ordered gnocchi and aubergine crostone but instead of gnocchi he got another pasta. Not a big deal: the waitress was ready to change but he decided to eat the wrong dish. I had a salmon toast with salad and cheese. Food was good but nothing special. Service... More

We thank you for your review and compliments that made the Tamerò. The service and timing of that you enjoyed and this makes us very happy. The fact that you want to come back to us makes us proud. We are happy that the waitress was responsive despite the misunderstanding and that he proposed to you right away a change... More

This was hands down the best meal we had in all of Italy. The handmade pasta was to die for and the drinks were on point as well. I got the fresh, handmade pasta with pesto and it was glorious. This restaurant was recommended by a local.

The food here is fresh and interesting, the restaurant is in a beautiful setting in the Piazza Santo Spirito. Sit outside only, order octopus and the liquorice crème brûlée, don't bother with the aperitivo.

Massimo V, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Tamero', responded to this review

Thank you so much for the compliments you have done to Tamerò and its food. Hand-made pasta isn’t unusual in Florence. Many of the city's finest eateries pride themselves on their fatti a mano (handmade) dishes. But what makes Tamerò worth a visit is its combination of contemporary décor with an adventurous menu between tradition and present. Walk through the... More

A local recommended Tamero for fresh pasta, and it was well worth the trip. I had pici cacio e pepe (pici pasta with pecorino cheese and black pepper). I licked the plate clean. No kidding. SOOOO worth the carbs!

Tamero is the coolest restaurant in Florence in the heart of Oltrarno: piazza Santo Spirito. The restaurant is well known for the express hand made pasta. After the 11.00 p.m. Tamero is a club where you could see the best jazz and rock band play good music.
