We asked for a reservation on very short notice and were accommodated. An amazing live pianist played during dinner and staff were attentive and friendly. The food was pretty as a picture and tasted just as good. I would definitely recommend eating here

We are here on our last day of our sojourn in Italy. It was our anniversary so were looking for something special. It certainly was, this restaurant is superb we had a series of amuse bouches as is common in any high end restaurants. The starters of Ravioli and sea food pasta were superb and just right in size. We then went for a sharing dish of Chateau Briand steak, it was superbly cooked , exactly perfectly pink in the middle and seared to the outside. It just melted in the mouth delicious!
So is there a but ? Well the steak was so large we could not get through to deserts! a silly point actually. A word of warning though , the wine list is not cheap! but it was certainly very drinkable.
to cap the meal the superb staff presented us with a gorgeous little confection of chocolate and cake with happy anniversary inscribed on it. They then gave us some more delicious sweets to take home
A fantastic meal

I went here with my husband during our trip to Florence, it was an amazing experience from when we set foot in the hotel. We had pre dinner cocktails (the vintage negroni was sublime), accompanied by complementary nibbles. There was a live signer in the bar who was fabulous. The waiters were friendly, attentive and professional
We then had dinner in il Pagalino. The service and food was fantastic. We had both the first and second course. We did not have dessert as did not fancy anything on the list, but were still given the pre dessert and small biscuits which was more than enough
I am a vegetarian and there was plenty of choice on a specific vegetarian menu
I’ve read a few reviews saying the food is not worth the expense. In my experience it very much was, and let’s face it a Michelin star speaks for itself -personal judgements aside
I would absolutely recommend the restaurant, and hotel bar if you just fancy a few drinks in a beautiful setting

First, the setting - the Four Seasons Firenze & Giardino Della Gherardesca. Dining outdoors with live music or indoors is a romantic setting for a great dinner. Second, the service - the staff are attentive & friendly but not intrusive. We never wanted for anything. Third, the wine list - an extensive balanced list with wines for any taste. Fourth, the food was amazing. The presentations were lovely & artful. The portions were perfect. Everything was perfectly prepared & tasted fabulous. A place we would definitely visit again.

On our last night in the beautiful city of Florence, we wanted to have a special meal sans children. Il Palagio was everything we hoped for and more....the food was mouthwatering, served in a stunning garden setting and the service was outstanding. Staff were attentive, very friendly and offered a seamless dinner service. I could not recommend more highly and we will make our way back again in the near future!!!
