In via Nazionale, accanto al tabernacolo delle Fonticine, dal 1939 c'è l'omonimo ristorante-enoteca. Qui, in un'atmosfera accogliente e semplice, da decenni la filosofia è sempre la stessa: tramandare la cultura gastronomica ed enologica della Toscana portando in sala, ogni giorno, i piatti tipici della Regione. Ogni volta mangiare in questo locale equivale a fare un viaggio indietro nel tempo, alla scoperta dei gusti e dei sapori di una volta. Il menu, dagli antipasti ai dolci, parla solo toscano.

Per cominciare, negli antipasti, accanto a taglieri di salumi e formaggi si trovano anche piatti come il carpaccio di manzo marinato con scaglie di grana e carciofi freschi. Tra i primi, poi, tutti con paste fresche fatte in casa, ci sono le pappardelle al cinghiale cucinato alla maremmana guarnito al cacao, le tagliatelle agli asparagi e prosciutto del Pratomagno o i pici alla senese. Solo alcuni esempi di ricette della tradizione toscana. Tradizione che ritroviamo anche nei secondi. Oltre alla bistecca al pollo o all'agnello, cotti su una grande griglia a carbone che vi accoglie all'entrata insieme alla cucina a vista, tra le carni si trovano anche il tradizionale ossobuco alla fiorentina, il filetto al chianti con vino e uvetta e il cinghiale maremmano con cipolline in agro dolce. Interessanti anche le proposte vegetariane, con insalate creative e carpacci con verdure di stagione, tutte provenienti dall'attiguo mercato di San Lorenzo. Non c'è una carta dei dolci: sarà il personale di sala a raccontarvi le proposte del giorno. Tra i vini molte eccellenze del panorama italiano. Ci sono diverse etichette di Chianti, Bolgheri e molti Supertuscan mentre tra i bianchi l'orizzonte si allarga a comprendere diversi regioni d'Italia: dalla Campania al Trentino Alto Adige. In carta anche bollicine e vini frizzanti. Il locale è una tipica osteria toscana, con interni e arredi in legno custodi tra il pavimento in cotto fiorentino e il soffitto con le travi a vista.

The atmosphere was nice, waiter was very good--there when we needed him, didn't bug us when we didn't. Food and wine were very good.


Saw lots of people having the steak Florentina, which looked very good.

Food and service are good!
I had the famous T-bone stake, it was really delicious. So was the soup!
Table for two is a little bit small especially for lunch when customer is not that many!

Probably our fault in not knowing what is meant by a Florentine steak. Perhaps it should have a short description on the menu. For those, like us, not in the know, it is very rare. We are used to being asked how we would like our steak and so we should have guessed it has a certain formula. Everything else on the plate was excellent, so enjoy the restaurant, just don’t order steak if you enjoy it medium rare or even well done!

Food was good - service was horrible. Waiter kept disappearing and at the end of the meal, went to eat and never came back and said nothing - leaving us waiting for 15m until the owner came over. Very rude!

The food was great, but the service was not. The waiter was trying to rush us out from the moment we entered. He kept pacing back and forth past our table, clearing his throat, and staring at us. The food was good, but I regret coming here because the experience was poor.

The ristorante had great atmosphere with a very competent staff. The food was excellent with a menu that you do not always see in Italy. Enjoy this old ristorante while in Florence.
