In borgo Santa Croce, a pochi passi dall’omonima piazza, in cui si racconta che nel 1500 visse l’architetto e storico dell’arte Giorgio Vasari, c’è un locale che fa del connubio tra cibo e arte un legame indissolubile. Da valorizzare alle pareti, dove trovano spazio tele e opere di artisti contemporanei, e nel piatto. Con un menu che valorizza la Toscana, quella più autentica, senza rinunciare a un tocco di creatività. È il Vasari FoodArt in borgo Santa Croce.

Tra muri in pietra a vista, luci soffuse e piccoli tavoli che rendono l’ambiente intimo e tranquillo potrete rifugiarvi per assaggiare un menu veloce, contemporaneo. Ma che conserva le tipicità della cucina regionale. Come accade per esempio nei primi come i ravioli o il risotto con la bottarga. E nei secondi, con le carni, come la rosticciana o la quaglia.

INSIDER tip

Nel cuore antico e artistico di Firenze Vasari FoodArt cerca di conservare il meglio della tradizione e di proiettarlo nel futuro. A tavola, come nel concept del locale, vale un’unica parola d’ordine: creatività.

Excellent restaurant, very good service the waiter was very kind and helpful when choosing the dishes and the wine. The food was excellent and the concept of exposing art pieces is very nice. A must to go!

The food unfortunately was really bad. Maybe because it was christmas and we were the only 2 people booked for dinner, but it seemed as if the food had been cooked a day before and warmed up... I had to send one dish back and barely go through the second one. Desert was ok. Not good value for money, totally disappointed

Il "Vasari food art" lo descriverei come un ristorante con poco "food" e molta "art".... Deludente

Florence you are lucky to have such an incredible restaurant such as this one. I have come to Florence to help my future daughter in law arrange her wedding. We made reservation based on a recommendation from our wedding planner. Our meal and entire evening was so incredible we are now arranging the rehearsal dinner here because we cannot let our guest leave Florence without dining at probably the best food I have ever had. We look forward to our return to this incredible place. My favorite dishes were the revisited greek salad, strips of chestnut crepe with honey glazed pigeon thigh and ricotta casserole and spinach and ricotta ravioli with rabbit in dolce forte sauce. But hurry and make your reservations now since the menu will change with the seasons.

I was a bit worried at first, as the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. However, it became full quite fast. The atmosphere was nice, the food was quite good and the staff was friendly.

Vasari foodArt has beautiful and delicious food. The ambiance was romantic with great music and art. You go to foodArt for the experience, don’t expect massive portions.

We loved this restaurant; offering a modern twist on traditional food & willing to experiment with flavours; which was wonderful.


The staff were very friendly & helpful, & the atmosphere welcoming.


We also very much liked the simple decor & modern art; which is right up our street.


Unfortunately, we discovered that our friends time travellers from 1950's England, who's idea of experimentation is a pizza with 'normal (Cheddar) cheese' on it & none of this funny foreign stuff (Parmesan), & who believe all art should be copies of Constables! They did not understand & would not even try the food!


It was so refreshing when the Chef replied to the request to remove the strawberries from the beef course, that it was blasphemous: We totally agree & apologise for their behaviour.


We will definitely be going back, without our friends, when we visit Florence again, & we strongly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone except those stuck in 1950's England.
