About the restaurant L'Osteria di Giovanni

GREAT RECEPTION - The restaurant L'Osteria di Giovanni is located in the heart of Florence, near the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It offers an environment with a rustic, characteristic furniture, embellished by a warm, friendly and always very relaxing.

REGIONAL CUISINE - The restaurant's menu is full of typical Tuscan specialities, with a prevalence of meat dishes. There is no lack fish courses, prepared based on the daily availability. Very good the homemade desserts, such as the pistachio parfait.

DISHES TO TRY - Do not miss the ribollita, pici with sausage and cabbage sauce, sliced beef with porcini mushrooms sautéed and milk-fed veal ossobuco with potatoes.

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!

We had a wonderful meal at Giovanni's. The food was great, the service very good. We never felt rushed - dined at 8 and stayed almost to 11. Lovely Caterina brought us their delicious homemade limoncello at the end - perfect end to a great meal.

The manager I believe she was (Chinese background) was phenomenal. She greeted my whole family with a free glass of champagne at the bar while she had our table set up, and was the most personable person I have ever met in Italy. The food was out of this world, and the drinks were cheap.


The manager also gave us complementary desserts towards the end, and it felt like a real Italian treatment (being showered with food as we attempted to leave hahah).


This was our best restaurant we visited by far while touring Italy. We were recommended this place by our friends in America, and we will continue promoting it to our friends in America!
