    Fixed price menu for New Years Eve 2019 was good value. They did an excellent job of service for a full house. We will be back for a more leisurely experience.

    Aloof front of house staff at the door greeting, but attentive staff inside. Had slices of beef fillet with rocket and parmesan cheese, loved the combination however beef could have been slightly more pink in the middle. Overall okay, wouldn’t rush back in a hurry.

    My issues with this restaurant were all about the service. The food was good, perfectly acceptable for the price. Nothing amazing, but better than the obvious tourist traps. We reserved several hours ahead through The Fork and arrived and sat down. Within a few minutes, the server was asking about our reservation. Despite telling him we reserved online and even showing him the email, he questioned us on three occasions whether we should be there. However, multiple parties walked up without reservations and were seated without fuss. The server also refused to bring the check until we asked for the third time. To top it off, once we were finally able to pay, he told us he forgot an item and brought back less change than anticipated. Very poor service that dragged down decent food and a stellar location. My advice: avoid this restaurant on the fork or you will get the third degree.

    The waitress was excellent. She was really attentive and we had the Florentine T bone steak and it was amazing. Good value and a lovely location.

    Service and atmosphere were good. Food was mostly disappointing for the price you pay. Grilled chicken and potatoes - potatoes were delicious but chicken was way over cooked and dry. Spaghetti with meatballs - 2 bland meatballs and undercooked pasta. Probably the wrong meal choices in hindsight. Tiramisu was great.

About the restaurant

CUCINA TOSCANA - I'Osteria Battipalla è situata nel centro storico di Firenze, proprio su piazza Santa Croce, una delle piazze più suggestive d'Italia. Il locale nasce proprio dove si trova la lapide in marmo di forma rotonda sulla quale si batteva la palla per dare inizio alla partita del famoso Calcio Storico: da qui il nome Battipalla. Il menù proposto è ricco di specialità tipicamente toscane, accompagnate da ottimi vini, provenienti dai territori circostanti.

PIATTI DA PROVARE - Tra le proposte del locale, sicuramente consigliati, ci sono i Tortelli Mugellani con ragù di coniglio, la Carabaccia De' Medici, la Trippa alla Fiorentina, la Bistecca fiorentina e il gustoso gran tagliere toscano. Da provare anche le nostre pizze, tra le quali non poteva mancare la speciale pizza Battipalla VIP.

COMFORT - La struttura presenta un arredamento vario e caratteristico, da bistrot a sala da thè. Un locale giovane e accogliente. Dalla Terrazza riscaldata potrete ammirare la bellezza di Piazza S. Croce gustando un buon piatto Toscano. Il personale è giovane e solare ed è sempre pronto a darvi un consiglio tra una battuta e l'altra.
