Non chiamatela solo trattoria. Da l’Ortone, in piazza Lorenzo Ghiberti, a un passo dallo storico mercato di Sant’Ambrogio, c’è un locale che fa della tradizione della cucina toscana un faro con cui illuminare il futuro della gastronomia italiana. E che sa reinventare il patrimonio culinario regionale rendendolo contemporaneo.

Tra pavimenti in cotto e tavoli in legno arredati in maniera semplice ma curata, gli ingredienti della tradizione, di un menu che cambia di frequente seguendo la stagionalità, la fanno da padrona: ci sono i baccelli, ci sono gli asparagi, ci sono le fave protagoniste di paste o risotti. E poi ci sono le carni, dal coniglio alla bistecca alla fiorentina e la griglia che rappresentano uno dei punti di forza di questo ristorante. Oltre a una cantina che seleziona le migliori etichette.

INSIDER tip

Una sera in compagnia, un ottimo calice di vino e una cucina che lascia senza dubbi dal primo all’ultimo piatto. L’Ortone a Firenze è una garanzia per chi è in cerca di una buona cucina al giusto prezzo.

One of my favourite places in Florence. The food, the service and the ambiance are all top notch. The kitchen is creative without being contrived or gimmicky. The menu is seasonal and fresh, I am a huge fan!

Picked this place based on the reviews and it really is a good place to go. Very friendly restaurant with a lovely owner and a great waiter - not only can they speak English brilliantly, they have a great sense of humour too. I would definitely go here again as the food, drinks and service were excellent.

Great food and atmosphere. We really enjoyed our dinner in this authentic trattoria out of the touristic area with cool vibes and a good sélection of wines. Primmi and meats were excellent and qualitative with fresh and tasty ingredients. Really nice discovery I recommend

One of our best meals on our vacation through Europe. It was convenient from our hotel and it was not packed with tourist.
Excellent cuisine and fantastic wines
Service was superb, Art (Arthur) was a pleasure.
It’ll be a must return to when I head back to Florence, enjoy cheers!

We had a wonderful evening here. The decor was lovely, ambience relaxing, service patient, informative and friendly. The food was delicious as was the wine. We can not fault any of it and wish we had more time in Florence so we could visit again. Definitely make time for a lunch or dinner here, am sure you won’t regret it. Thank you to our waiter (and the chef) for such a stress free evening of culinary delight.

Mood spoiled only by management allowing other diners to vape inside restaurant. Should definitely disallow this as it is smelly and unhealthy to non smokers. They can go outside with the other smokers!

Had the spaghettoni with artichoke and beef cheek. Everything was to die for.
