In San Frediano, incoronato dalla guida Lonely Planet come quartiere “più cool” del mondo, Matteo Fantini ha aperto qualche anno fa “Io Osteria Personale”. Un piccolo ristorante, 30 in totale i coperti, in cui Fantini crea e sperimenta ricette di cucina creativa e contemporanea.
In carta ci sono pochi piatti per ciascuna portata: una scelta fatta per garantire un'alta qualità e una cura maniacale di ogni pietanza. Il faro è la tradizione, non solo toscana ma italiana, che entra da “Io Osteria Personale” sulle gambe di tanti produttori locali le cui materie prime foraggiano ogni giorno la dispensa dello chef. La brigata, sei in tutto tra cucina e sala, è composta da giovani under 30. Una squadra dinamica e preparata che in questi anni ha reso il locale di borgo San Frediano uno dei più apprezzati d'Oltrarno.

Il menu segue le stagioni ma sono tanti ormai i piatti che si trovano in carta tutto l'anno perché divenuti simbolo del ristorante: ci sono i calamari con crema di patate al limone, capperi fritti e pesto di rucola, le tagliatelle con crudo di gamberi rossi, funghi di stagione e sesamo, il vitello tonnato croccante con puntarelle e limone e tra i dessert, tutti fatti in casa come le paste e il pane, la crema di cioccolato bianco e olio extravergine con granita di lavanda e gelatina al frutto della passione.
L'ottanta per cento dei piatti in carta è gluten free e non mancano le proposte vegetariane. La cantina, sempre curata da Fantini, conta 250 etichette tra vini italiani e francesi provenienti da piccole aziende.
Il locale occupa gli spazi di una vecchia salumeria. E, a dispetto del nome, è tutt'altro che un'osteria vecchia maniera. Tra il soffitto a cassettoni e i muri in pietra, con mattoncini bianchi, si apre uno spazio dalle linee semplici in cui il legno degli arredi e dei tavoli e il nero della lavagne ai muri conferisce un tocco di modernità che, insieme alla struttura d'epoca, costituisce quel mix di antico e moderno che costituisce il concept del locale.

After reading the reviews decided to try this as special birthday meal for two. We were not disappointed. Taster menu was brilliant and well worth the slight premium. Would recommend this place as a treat and something different. Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

I have ordered the five - course tasting menu, they are all very delicious and comes with a reasonable price tag. Services is very good as well. Worth going if you fancy something more than the regular pasta but creative dishes.

Food was excellent, innovative, combination of flavors, presentation, etc
Service was very attentive.. Owner makes himself very available.
However the service and ambience is too formal for a simple restaurant.
Too serious... more smiles and friendlier service, would have been nice. Server did warm up a bit towards the end of meal.
Tasting menu for the price and portions should allow for different choices, rather than everyone having to eat the same items on the menu.
Price is a bit high for portions.
A nice dining experience in general,
Not a “WOW” amazing...return again soon regular dining experience, but worth trying.

We had a wonderful meal here. I was excited by the reviews I read and it did not disappoint us. We did the tasting menu 5 tAstes. The salmon ravioli was fantastic and the squid was some of the best I have had. Our main course was the pork and the sauce was delicious- quite unusual flavors. Popcorn ice cream to top everything off. I forgot the cauliflower- done to perfection and wonderful blend of flavors. Go and enjoy!

Contemporary approach to local ingredients. A fresh change to the more traditional Florentine food scene. Reminded us of the trendy Nordic approach to respecting local with an innovative and fresh twist. Highly recommend ❤️
