Mangiare in un antico portico del 1500 nel cuore antico di Firenze. Alzare lo sguardo all'insù verso il soffitto a volte e poi giù verso il pavimento in cotto, come quelli di un tempo. Tra tovaglie candide e il rosso accesso delle sedute, con un'apparecchiatura classica, quasi regale. E' l'atmosfera raffinata ed elegante che si respira stando seduti a uno dei tavoli de La Chiostrina, il ristorante ospitato al piano terra dell'hotel cinque stelle Bernini Palace in piazza San Firenze.

Siamo nel cuore rinascimentale della città. A pochi passi c'è piazza della Signoria. Poco più in là il Duomo da un lato e Ponte Vecchio dall'altro. Il locale dunque si trova in una posizione centrale. Ma questo non deve spaventare perché i prezzi alla carta sono nella media. Il menu cambia spesso, quasi ogni mese. Per assecondare la stagionalità degli ingredienti e offrire le migliori materie prime.

Negli antipasti della Chiostrina c'è un omaggio alla Toscana, con la degustazione di salumi e formaggi del territorio. Ma spuntano anche ricette più creative come le fogliette di petto d’anatra e fichi con fresche misticanze e salsa di miele e limone e il pesce spada leggermente fumé, cetriolo allo yogurt e vaniglia ed hummus di cecino rosa grossetano. Si passa poi alle zuppe di verdure o alla pappa al pomodoro. Mentre tra i primi i ravioli rosa alle barbabietole ripieni di ricotta salata di pecora con battuto bianco d’anatra al dragoncello e mirtillo nero sono un'eccellente alternativa alle fettucce ai pistilli di zafferano con pesce spada fresco, pomodorino datterino e menta. Tra i secondi proposte di carne e pesce, che portano in tavola piatti come il petto di galletto arrotolato con carciofi e pecorino di Pienza, salsa di pere e noci o il calamaro ripieno con porri e radicchio tardivo di Treviso, gazpacho di peperone rosso e formaggio primo sale. La carta dei dolci è breve e molto classica, mentre quella dei vini presenta un'ottima selezione di etichette, con bottiglie nazionali e internazionali.

    This was our best meal in Florence! The chef is creative with the traditional Tuscan menu, the salads were excellent, the pastas were delicious and so was the chicken. Loved the tiramisu for dessert!

    The best Panna Cotta I've ever had ???? and lovely friendly and quick service. However it did have a limited menu. Only 3 pasta dishes, 2 soups and 3 meat options.

    Excellent, magic and so on. La bistecca was more than simply fine. Oh, and that majestic service.

    Everything was great except the music that was being played. There was a rap song expressing vulgarity of which I brought to the attention of the employees, but all I was told that it was a change made not long ago. It’s a real shame because it ruined dinner. I know one regrettably heard vulgar language on a regular basis in public but it’s something I shouldn’t have to hear at dinner as entertainment.

    Took the tasting menu and the pairing wines. Great taste. Great service. Hard to find the restaurant as it is inside a hotel

    Good, but not great food. Impeccable service, though not particularly warm. All-in-all a fine meal.

    Good evening spent at this place. Food was fantastic and presented in a fabulous manner. Level of service is impressive. Significant value for a reasonable price paid both in terms of food quality and service received.

    We can highly recommend this restaurant. Best quality of food and wine (we had tuna, duck breast, sea bass, grilled beef, tiramisu) served with carefully chosen components and small little details on the plates. The atmosphere is quiet, the dress code did not seem to be strict (smart casual?). The service was fantastic. If you compare the prizes to the quality you get, it should be 11/10.

    Amazed that we were the only ones there, it was excellent! Part of a swish hotel but we were the only people in the restaurant at this time.... our gain. We had our very own lovely waitress for the night and the meal was wonderful. The world is missing out on the quality of food available, beautiful stuffed tomatoes, I had a brilliant steak..... all very reasonably priced.... even the wine was quality. Thank you for the quality of our first meal in Florence... a bench mark for the rest of our trip.

    We like the food. Specially the starters were awesome!! But is too dark and sad. There was another couple and us. They should put some lights on the little interior garden to light up the mood, make it more cosy and romantic.
