Un locale dove assaporare la cucina toscana più autentica. Dove le ricette si tramandano di generazione in generazione, dai nonni ai nipoti, e in cui anche la bistecca alla fiorentina viene trattata, cotta e servita rispettando tutti i dettami della tradizione. Alla Trattoria Pandemonio, in via del Leone, la famiglia Brogi accoglie turisti e fiorentini dal 1992. Oggi sono mamma Giovanna, babbo Rolando e il giovane Cecco insieme a tutta la famiglia e al loro staff a portare avanti il locale, preparando ogni giorno i piatti tipici della cucina fiorentina.

Il menu, dagli antipasti ai dolci, è intriso di fiorentinità: gli antipasti, con crostini salumi e fagioli con la bottarga, fanno da apripista ai tortellacci e ai maccheronici con il sugo della mamma. Tra i secondi, oltre alle carni alla griglia, irresistibili sono le polpettine di lesso con i fagioli all'uccelletto: le polpette, preparate con un misto di patate e carne bollita, vengono poi fritte e servite su un letto di fagioli all'uccelletto. Non mancano le proposte di mare: gli spaghetti alla bottarga o le bavettine con le vongole tra i primi, il polpo alla luciana o la zuppa di mare tra i secondi. Per i dolci, invece, c'è da affidarsi allo staff che saprà indicarvi le proposte del giorno, confezionate con ingredienti di stagione. Le materie prime sono a chilometro zero: molte materie prime, infatti, provengono dalle botteghe di quartiere o dal vicino mercato. In cantina oltre 260 etichette: accanto ai toscani Chianti e Brunello, anche bianchi secchi, rosati e spumanti italiani.

Il locale è accogliente e rispetta lo stile tipico di una trattoria toscana: i colori alla pareti sono caldi, gli arredi e i tavoli sono in legno, l'apparecchiatura è semplice. Tra una portata e l'altra l'atmosfera familiare si fa ancora più presente e sembra quasi di stare a casa tra le luci intense e i tanti quadri appesi alle pareti.

    I have been infinite times at Trattoria Pandemonio and I have never been disappointed once. I have never tasted a steak as good as the one they do here, but the incredible thing is that everything on the menu is tasty and top quality. The service is one of the best, the waiters are professional but funny and very friendly. It’s always a pleasure to come here and I definitely recommend it to everyone visiting Florence!

    My husband and I ate here a few years ago and loved it so we looked forward to returning. They did not disappoint. The service and food was amazing. We’ve eaten in quite a few places around Florence and nothing has measured up. We will be returning again before we leave in a few days! Perfecto!

    Well, fiorentino steak was good. Everything else was meh. The actual restaurant os nothing like what you see on the photos. So be careful if you look for something less of a basic trattoria.

    This was our favorite restaurant in Florence -- wonderful, warm environment (very homey) and delicious food. We had the vegetable soup (without bread) and the veal cutlet with roasted potatoes on the side. Everything was fabulous. The dessert, their homemade Tiramisu, was the perfect ending to a lovely evening.

    The best steak in town. We always come back during our trip. The steak is juicy and so tasty. Even you pair it w the house wine, you will still think this is the best steak!

    This is our third time here and although Momma Giovanna has sadly passed to the great kitchen in the sky her Trattoria in Firenze is in good hands. The eggplant flan and risotto scampi are absolute musts. Also the veal and steaks are done to perfection. The wine list is more than adequate and the prices are quite reasonable. Finally, the staff have been there for years, are incredibly friendly and helpful even if your Italian is lacking. :) We go to Florence for this restaurant and take in the arts on the side.

    The food and ambiance are incredible. The steak was a little too rare for our liking, even after sending it back to cook a little longer but it was still amazing. The stuffed pasta with zucchini was out of this world. Would definitely go back!!
