This was a true experience with food! We had food tastings paired with wines; the portions are small but extremely complex and delicious! Very expensive but worth the experience! Décor is warm and inviting! The chef is intense!

At La Bottega del Buon Caffe we have been producing seasonal authentic Florentine dishes for years. Yet, our new location in the heart of Florencce marks the start of a new era as the La Bottega team launch a selection of exciting new organic and gourmet concepts. In collaboration with the restaurant's new owners, Claus and Jeanette Thottrup, La Bottega del Buon Caffe's head chef, Antonello Sardi, has successfully developed fresh and innovative gourmet menus which are now available both at lunch and dinner and which have earned him his first Michelin Star. With the emphasis on natural locally sourced ingredients, La Bottega offers authentic Tuscan food that creatively combines the best of classic and contemporary cuisine. Authenticity and honesty is at the heart of all we create at La Bottega and our menus are created individually according to the season. Today's catch of fresh fish is delivered from the Mediterranean daily, free-range meats are supplied by local artisan farmers and our vegetables, fruit, herbs and honey are bought from our farm in the country. Respecting our Florentine location our menus are designed to reflect the region's unique gastronomic heritage and vibrant culinary culture.
