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.

food was pretty good but seemed slightly lacking in ways that I have trouble describing. Well, I can say the bread wasn't very good. The courses, while visually appealing, didn't have that taste that knocks your socks off with many tasting menus I've had. My other dinner guest felt exactly as I did.

Great service in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Some of the food looked more exiting than it tasted, but all the dishes had some elements making them more than worth while. Extra points for a lovely wine recommendation. Good value for the money.

We took the four course meal. The food is tasty but the portion are small. I took two different red wines by glass. Very nice wines but they pour very little wine in the glass,less then usual. The place is nice with pleasant atmosphere

Loved the food. The dishes were very inventive, using fresh and good quality ingredients. We took the larger menu and each dish was enjoyable. The desserts and the crispy veal were outstanding ! Presentation was immaculate. This is Michelin star quality at a fraction of the price. Definitively one of our best meals in Firenze so far.


Overall a great experience and we will definitively come back .

The food was incredible. The service was delightful. The table of vodka-swillers that were horrendously rude all night just served to show how humble and polite your serving staff were. We would definitely recommend Io Osteria Personale for a lovely dinner, and will be sure to visit again next time we are in Florence.

Super friendly and professional service (and in English!). High quality dishes and presentation. We had the tasting menu so portions were small but lovely. Extensive wine list, very reasonably priced.
