    Absolutely fantastic meal. We enjoyed the Italian focused tasting menu and the Italian focused wine pairings. Everything that came was an experience in culinary fun and flavor. The food explored boundaries of texture, complementary flavors, and flavor intentions (Eg “this course is very savory compared to the previous course which was light and tart…”). The entire staff worked hard to ensure a seamless and enjoyable meal. The wine somm and team went above and beyond to find ways to bring wine to the pairing that elevates the courses while maybe only sacrificing in brand name recognition (and not quality). Would highly recommend dining here but with a warning that the meal can get pricey.

    Everything was just fantastic. The food was incredible: complex flavors, sometimes bold and sometimes delicate, beautiful presentation, and surprising textures. The service was impeccable, and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and kind. The ambience was simply surreal.

    This is absolutely fabulous restaurant. Fairly small, it allows staff to give you all the proper attention. Service was impeccable with even minor details such as placing bottles with label always facing you, not touching wine corks with fingers being observed in a very natural way. Food was absolutely amazing. Crispy poached eggs and cockerel pasta were one of the tastiest samples I’ve ever had. All the samples were expertly paired with wine and sommelier was extremely knowledgeable about all the vintages. Clearly 10/10 rating.

    Excellent service, friendly staff. We came for our anniversary celebration dinner and had a wonderful time. They had a lovely singer throughout dinner that added to romantic dinner ambience. The restaurant was very beautiful and would love to come back in the springtime when flowers are blooming.

    Thank you Il Palagio for a wonderful dinner. Almost every aspect of every dish was perfect! Your servers were all very attentive and personable. The live singer was a nice touch and added to the dinner experience. If we are ever in Florence again, we will aim to come back.

    First - the food. Incredible flavors, beautiful presentation, great mix of classic and modern techniques and flavors. Second - the location. Dining outside among the gardens and the piano music was fantastic. Third - the service was just incredible. The whole team took incredible care of us. They were at the table the perfect amount of time. Explanations of the dishes superb. Wine recommendations very helpful. Amazing meal overall.

    Service was amazing— best I’ve ever experienced. Prices are high but worth it (other than wine/liquor which is too over-priced). Food is fresh, contemporary with its roots in traditional Italian. You’re paying for the ambience and the many free bites they provide throughout the meal. Great gluten free options. The raspberry and thyme pie is a must have. So is the rabbit. Skip the lobster— small and too plain for the price.

    A great selection of Wine list. Lamp and pear tartlet should be tried. The ambiance was great. A well diserved michelin star. We will be back as soon as we come to lovely Firenze.

    Perfect restaurant for special occasions. Warm welcoming extremely attentive to the clients. The most expensive place in Florence for sure. The food is excellent, but it can't be otherwise for this price. Great beef in crumbs with mozzarella-infused mashed potato. We loved the fresh and original dessert made in the form of a green apple. A lot of free compliments from the chef (starters, fresh bread with Toscana olive oil, pre-desert, selection of sweets for coffee). Very quiet place. The waiters speak good English, Italian and even Russian. Everything was so impeccable that I don't have enough words to describe my appreciation. Probably you can find the same quality for lower price in the city but if you want to feel extra VIP, this is a place to go.

    Both food and service were excellent, where in particular the information a out the wines and the discussion about wines were much appreciated. The only negative were the Christmas decisions, that in mid January seemed out of place.
