Two friends and I go to Florence every January as a girls trip. We tend to visit our favorite restaurants but as we had an extra day in town, we though to try something new. One of the girls recommended this place and it was quite swanky inside (minus the cheesy photo montage at the entrance with all the "VIPs" that have come to the restaurant...very tacky and made the place look a bit cheap). We started with the fish crudo which was various raw fish and shrimp and was really fresh and delicious. Then for our primi we ordered the crab tagliatelle which was really tasty. I ordered the crustacean dish for my secondi. The others had a fish. All was really delicious. We finished with dessert and had plenty of wine. Was overall quite pricey but tasted delicious.

We loved everything about this restaurant. we wanted a fish restaurant after several days of exposure to Florentine Steak and this restaurant was recommend by our hotel.

Starting at the beginning the welcome is very friendly. we sat at our table and a glass of prosecco appeared very quickly without even asking.

The head waiter was very friendly effortlessly switching between English and Italian.

The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. In between courses little surprises arrived like a sgroppino, or later a vin santo.

It's not cheap, but its great value and well worth it.

A really lovely evening.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant and it was a great dinner!
Of course the restaurant isn't in the old city. But the walk isn't far away and to walk in a beautiful city even in a November night is nice!
The welcome was lovely and the waiter was excellent.
We followed the recommendations according the catch of the day which is from my point of view always the best choice in a fish restaurant.
And also here it was nice!

The recommendation was three kind of Italian style of raw fish, a salted backed fish with steamed vegetables as main course and a apple tart as dessert.

They were also flexible to change some proposals from the food even it was already on the table.
And, nothing is perfect, but the small things we complained they changed immediately like the cup which had a bit of fluff, but this can always happen.

Of course not cheap, but from my point of view every cent spent is right investment for nice evening with value, especially when you would like spent a great evening as couple in nice atmosphere in an Italian city.

I am can't await to be next there.

Our third visit to Fuor d'acqua in the last 15 years. Our first visit was when it first opened and it was a rustic trattoria, now it's a fine dining seafood destination. The seafood is fresh and delivered everyday from the coast so the menu depends on what is freshly caught and brought into the fish market daily. The dining room is exquisite and so is the service. Our waiter was so accommodating, she understood that we could not eat a huge
meal so she didn't push us onto a tasting or too many courses. She helped us choose several appetisers and main course which was split. It was all done so perfectly. Sometimes, one forgets how good seafood can be done in the right hands. The wine list
has all the favorites of Tuscany and Italy and at very fair prices.
Reservations are a must, no smoking, or pets.
A must do if you are a seafood lover, it's not rustic cooking if that's what you are looking for. It compares to some 3 star restaurants we've been to, Fior d'acqua does not qualify I've been told because the menu changes everyday.
One of the finest in the city.
