How to get to the restaurant L'Osteria di Giovanni

How to get there?

  • Public transports
    We are very close to the main station square (Piazza della Stazione) so all buses and trains that go via that square are good!
  • Specific directions to get there
    L'Osteria di Giovanni lies in a very narrow side street that runs from Piazza Santa Maria Novella right the way down to the Arno River. It's just one car wide and has tiny sidewalks - don't be discouraged! We are on the left hand side as you walk towards
  • Car park We strongly advise that you don't bring a car. Public transport or a taxi are much the best options. If you do bring a car, a private car park or the station car park are your best options. Legal street parking is impossible!

The food was fabulous and we are spoiled because our son-in-law is a chef in Italy. The waiters were attentive and charming. The house wine was terrific.

Very good traditional Tuscan cooking. Antipasti were very good sized portions and main courses were cooked perfectly. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

This restaurant is beautifully decorated and everything was delicious! We got a sample of their homemade olive oil on toasted bread which had garlic in it and was sooo good. Then we got the bistecca a la florentina 1.2 kg which sounds like a lot but it was perfect, and the house red wine. It was a delicious meal and really worth it for the atmosphere and the quality of the meat. Just beware it was 45 euros per person to eat that, so be prepared to spend a bit.

Service was attentive, food was okay - not bad but also not amazing. Defo not a tourist trap but also not sure it was worth searching and making reservations for.

It’s a very busy restaurant, so if you’re looking for something calm and chilled that’s not your place but the food is of really good quality.

Really nice atmosphere, lots of free included 'presents' that augmented the meal. Varied menue and good selection of wines. Only not so good area was that the food was not top notch and not always hot when served.

Fantastic experience! Everything from ambience, food, wine and service. Best of all the owners were there to make sure everything was perfect for you. Shook the hand of Giovanni and was received by warm welcome from Caterina. I was able to reserve a table for 4 through this app easily. I did not have a local mobile number to call them but wifi is very accessible in Florence. The app even reminded me of my reservation through
This place is a gem. We ordered onion soup, bistecca Tbone and the seafood tagliatelle. Everything we ordered... divine. My father requested for extra walnuts and they indulged him! Service at its finest.
The perfect dining experience to spend our last night in Firenze! Bellisima! Grazie!
