Della trattoria nata nel 1958 come alimentari e risorta come un’araba fenice dalle ceneri dell’alluvione che colpì Firenze nel 1966 grazie alla determinazione dei fratelli Bigazzi restano le volte in mattoni, alcuni muri in pietra e il vecchio camino su cui ancora oggi si grigliano carni rigorosamente toscane. Sono passati 60 anni, ma “I fratellini” al 27 rosso di via Ghibellina continua a portare in tavola la Toscana. Ora nella cucina di questo esercizio storico c’è lo chef Lorenzo Dei.

Nell’ambiente ristrutturato ogni singolo elemento, dai tavoli in ceramica di Poppi ai lampadari in legno, ogni elemento ha un legame affettivo con la Toscana. Il menu, con paste, pane e dolci fatti in casa, cambia ogni mese. Imperdibili i pici al ragù bianco di cinta senese e l’ossobuco. Aspettando le zuppe e la ribollita.

INSIDER tip

Se volete capire come si è evoluto il concetto di trattoria nel corso degli anni, questo locale è il posto giusto. Qui la cucina di una volta ha assunto un aspetto contemporaneo. Ma il gusto, quello dei sapori autentici, è rimasto intatto.

Excellent service. Coccoli (fried bread) with stracchino cheese and prosciutto was a fantastic starter. Picio pasta with a white ragu was rich and satisfying. Mixed grill plate was a hit and miss with excellent ribs, tasty sausage, and a roasted chicken which was on the dry side. Wine list was limited with fair pricing.

Food was excellent, and the atmosphere was modern styling, bright, and slightly energetic. Be warned, if you get the steak, you do not get to customize your steak size (you get whatever the weight of the steak is pre-cooked).

Service started out great, but became a little difficult to get attention by the end of the meal. Overall, definitely worth a visit.

We made a reservation which helped us get in very quickly, since the menu was new for the season the waiter apologized for not having it in English but we asked him to just bring us his favorites. We had an amazing appetizer platter, each person got their own plate too, and we ordered a beef portion to share. I would recommend asking to cook the meat more than usual there were several very rare pieces which some might like but was s little to rare for us. The house chianti was delicious as well!!

Food was fantastic - the owner was wonderful, explained the dishes and was friendly and welcoming. THere were six of us - each ordered something different and all were well worth the visit, Would highly recommend this place. Do make reservations as it is not large and is pretty busy most nights.

The ribeye was not as tender or flavorful as anticipated and we would not recommend the fireside platter, but everything else was FABULOUS. The risotto (tomato and mozzarella), pasta with ragout, stuffed zucchini flower, octopus salad and fried tripe made up for any short comings. Fabulous, friendly service and GREAT recommendations from our waiter.

This little restaurant in the center was as expected, very characteristic in the dishes and in the atmosphere. Shame about the layout of the table, too close to the staff. Recommended the Fiorentina steak and the Tartare with truffle!

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. It was a bit hidden from main streets with no outdoor seating but after the dinner we couldn't care less - VERY good and professional service, especially in Italy where sadly afwul and rude service stands out. VERY good and well prepared food, decent prices. If you really love food and eat also meat, I'd recommend their rib eye steak (typical to Firenze) with extras. Not only great food makes a restaurant experience great but also great service - thank you for that!

Staff was welcoming and friendly but new and focused only on their priorities. Service slow and disconnected. We had to ask for items. Hope they will figure things out and focus on customers in order to retain their good ratings.

We went to this restaurant following a recommendation by our AirBnB contact. Food was good, we went for a big costata (1kg Rib eye steak) and lamb chops for the adults and hamburgers for the 3 kids. All was good. However for the drinks, the only choice was water or wine, no fruit juices or sodas. We aksed for one sparkling and one still, and 2 bottles of still water were served. Service was poor, the only waiter was fast but still not able to cope with the number of guets and just tried to survive. No time for advice about the menu, no tip that the costata and lamb chops would be way too much food for my wife and I. The costata came first and we thought and hoped that the waiter had fotgotten about the lamb chops (we had nore than enough food with the steak). But the lamb chops arrived 10 minutes after everything else.
Anyways, to make a long story short the food was good but the service was poor and no atmosphere. A poor experience overall.
