    First time in Italy and came across this cosy place. The staff set the standards so high I do not think any other place could top this. The food was amazing topped with there recommendation for one of the best red wines we tasted. Definitely 10/10 experience and will be back again for more .

    Very warm welcome, staff are very attentive and polite. We were offered a very nice table near to the kitchen. The waiters explained the options on the menu and advised on the wines. We were *extremely* happy with the choice of dishes and the wines. We took the famous Florence T-bone steak which was perfectly cooked and very tender, I can highly recommend that choice! We were offered a shared birthday desert as one of our party was celebrating that day, a very nice and kind gesture on the part of the restaurant. We finished with some excellent cafe and grappa's. I can only give the highest praise for the staff and the food and we really enjoyed our visit. We will return, don't hesitate to book here!

    Food was very authentic, wine menu as well. Exceptional food quality and service. Desserts were okay but it was clear that the salty kitchen was their expertice.

    Last day in Florence and I wanted to find a place that is traditional Italian and found this recommended on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed, food was great, the deserts were really good and the bottle of Bolgheri went down well. I couldnt fault the service or the fare.

    Very high note on The Fork is absolutely reasonable. The service very profesional and friendly. Recommendations regarding food perfect. It is not like Michelin star restaurant. More focused on friendly atmosphere and highest quality of traditional dishes. We had just what we wanted! The choice of wines recommended by owner - amusing! Restaurant placed walking distance from strict center but it is advantage due to lower number of tourists.

    Amazingly consistently high quality food at this find of a restaurant just to the north of the mercato centrale. The service is impeccable; friendly and efficient The menu is varied and offers some interesting dishes not found elsewhere eg hare and roe deer. I heartily recommend a meal here when in Florence

    The most amazing place in Florence. The service was really perfect, friendly waiters and the food is just incredible. If you visit Florence you MUST go there at least once (or twice like us as we thought it was really good). You will leave this place with a big smile on your face ????.

    It was a perfect evening. Absolute recommendation. We were warmly received. From service to food, everything was absolutely top class. No wish remained unfulfilled. Everyone who comes to Florence and wants to spend a nice evening should visit this restaurant. As a starter we had the mixed salami and cheese platter For Two, which was great and could convince with different regional salami and cheeses. As main course we had sliced beef with tartufo and lard. The beef literally melted on our tongues. A special Tiramisu rounded off the perfect evening. In Germany we have a lot of good beer, but the traditional "birrificio Fiorentino" was in no way inferior to it. Also highly recommended is the Aperol Spritz and the wine list of the restaurant. Of course the espresso was also an absolute pleasure. During our next stay in Florence we will certainly visit this restaurant again. A big thank you to David and the rest of the team. Who made our last evening in Florence unforgettable.

    Venue is cozy and stylish as well, great choice of food, all fresh (nothing frozen), great choice of wine, personnel very warm and full of suggestion but without being pushy. Silent and good temperature also in summer for lunch, without exceeding with air conditioning. I’ll be back soon!

    Fantastic meal and service. The pasta was one of the best dishes we’ve even had! Our bistecca was a tiny bit too rare and our very kind server had it cooked a bit more. He even made us a dessert that’s not on the menu!! Fantastic. We will return. Five ⭐️!
