Lovely atmosphere, they take care of any detail from food to wine, from service to furnishings. And, of course, the main course: the bistecca fiorentina. I've tried several places in Tuscany and this is without any doubt one of bests! It is worth to mention...More

We finished our trip in Italy (again) in Bisteccatoscana and I really do enjoy returning to the Bistecca alla Fiorentina that they make. I have yet to taste a better example of it. But more than the meat, the wine list is simply astonishing. In...More

Went on a long road trip through Europe and this place had the best meat, hands down. Staff was friendly and made for a perfect experience after a long day of driving. Thanks, I'll be back!

The restaurant specializes in making the chair grilled t-bone, actually you cannot get anything else there, but...the meat is prepared for perfection, comes with starter and sides. Staff is very friendly and cares for the guests.

I really don't know for sure. I've only seen adults in the restaurant. They have a fixed menu.

The menu is a set menu. For about 32 euros, you get several small courses of things like pâté, fava beans, and other tasty finger type food, while you are waiting for a huge steak. The chef cooks the steak on an oak wood... More

No menu and fixed price. If you like, you can drink some good wine. At your table, you'll be served (family style) 1,200 - 1,800 g or 2,400 g of top quality steak (600 g per person). While you steak is grilling, you'll taste a light appetizer to occupy your wait time and enjoy your steak with relish. Your steak will be done at sight on a wood-burning grill and will be accompanied by three side-dishes. A dessert will complete you dinner. The only extra could be the wine, if you like it, to be chosen from our rich list from €8.00 Upwards.
