Una lunga storia come produttori di vini di alta qualità. Poi l'esperienza nel campo della ristorazione internazionale. Infine la voglia di tornare alle radici, nel cuore più antico della città d'origine: Firenze. È la parabola che ha spinto la famiglia Frescobaldi ad aprire un nuovo ristorante in piazza Signoria, all'ombra di Palazzo Vecchio, dopo il successo del locale in via dei Magazzini. Nel nuovo ristorante con 130 coperti tra piano terra, una sala privata al secondo piano, un wine bar e un dehor, il menu è improntato all'italianità, ma con molti accenti toscani. In cucina lo chef Roberto Reatini che, reduce dalla guida del ristorante Frescobaldi a Londra, ha ideato una carta con piatti che molto devono alle sue esperienze in giro per il mondo. Ma anche a sua nonna, che gli ha trasmesso la passione per la cucina.

E proprio come in ogni cucina casalinga, la pasta è fatta a mano dalla brigata del Frescobaldi. Le migliori bottiglie dei vitigni di famiglia, oltre a grandi etichette da tutta Italia, accompagnano i piatti sin dagli antipasti dove accanto ai classici fegatini toscani con i crostini di pollo si trovano il polpo stufato con pomodorini datterino, peperoncino, capperi e olive o le crocchette di granchio con avocado citronette e pepe rosa. Pochi ingredienti ma ben equilibrati per proposte semplici. Una semplicità che ritroviamo anche nei primi: interessanti i maltagliati di farina di grano arso con i fagioli zolfini. Più classici i pici senesi con ragù di coniglio e olive taggiasche o i tagliolini al tartufo nero pregiato. I secondi, sia di carne che di pesce, completano una proposta chiara, che predilige ingredienti del territorio e porta in auge ricette delle tradizione. Il locale, studiato e realizzato da uno studio di design spagnolo, racconta la storia antica di questa famiglia legata a doppio filo a quella di Firenze: come racconta il grande albero genealogico che campeggia sulle mura della saletta al secondo piano. Gli interni in legno, gli arredi classici, la mise en place elegante rendono l'ambiente di pregio ma non formale.

Considering the location is in a high tourist traffic area, the quality of food and services were excellent. Often you won't find this is the case is tourist areas. We were pleasantly surprised.

I have loved the Frescobaldi brand for many years. I love wine, culture, the spirit of the company. The level of quality of everything that the company does is always incredibly high. I remember the old restaurant thanks to which I fell in love with the brand even more. There was a very warm atmosphere, amazingly professional and friendly waiters, the Manager was just beyond professional. After the opening of the new restaurant, everything changed. Not the first time in a new, and with each time all worse and worse. The last time was disappointing. Rude inattentive waiters. They are constantly changing. Long preparing food. The level of the kitchen is not what it used to be. It's very frustrating. The waiters in the neighboring establishments and the cuisine there is already better than the best and oldest wine company in Italy. Very want hope that this change. Since the competition is obviously very strong. Given the fact that Gucci next opened such a strong project, this is especially true. Thanks

I love Frescobaldi. Every time i come to Florence i always make a point to go there. The pasta with truffles is my favorite. Never had a bad meal there. They have moved from the old place which makes me sad but the new place is very beautiful as well. Until next time.

The restaurant is always great. We wanted to dine indoors, but the air conditioning was not on - so it was warm. We asked to be seated outdoors.... and it was a lovely night.

We booked Frescobaldi on the recommendation. Of a colleague who had visited 2 years ago.
Lovely setting on the Piazza. We chose sit outside to make the most of the weather and the view.
The food and wine were excellent. We went for a Tuscan Vermentino and a selection of antipasti, mains and contorni.
Would definitely recommend and will revisit when back in Florence.

Great view. Perhaps the best looking at Piazza Della Signoria. Great service. Good selection of Wines at affordable prices. Food is good yet not much alternative especially if you’re looking for Tuscan dishes

It’s overpriced and food is not good, the location and set up is really nice!! Not worth the money though. I could say its a commercial tourists place

Was not disappointed in any of the dishes I ordered. The pear cheesecake is divine. The whole serving staff was exceptionally good natured and helpful.

I’ve been here several times because the food is usually excellent, which it was. They have nice fish options and other light dishes (which are sometimes hard to find) among the more traditional dishes in Florence. This is where I have often taken out of town guests in the past for this reason, and of course for the atmosphere. The service with one particular waiter unfortunately was quite unpleasant. His impatience several times during the meal was palpable. This was really jarring considering the kindness and unflappableness of many waiters here in Florence.
