Eating out in Florence

Eating out in Florence Let's talk masterpieces. No! Not the paintings of Leonardo, the sculptures of Michelangelo, and the works of Brunelleschi - Italian cuisine masterpieces!

We know your interest in Florentine food competes with your love of Florentine art....and we understand!

The pleasure of eating an excellent pizza can, without a doubt, rival the intellectual satisfaction of visiting the Uffizi; drinking a good Chianti can bring you the same joy as looking at beautiful Leonardo da Vinci painting; the famous "bistecca alla fiorentina" can surely compete with all the sculptures of Michelangelo; and laying eyes on real, Italian "tiramisù" can give you just as much internal happiness as a view across Tuscany.

In Florence, you can eat like Dante. But to do so, you MUST get off the beaten tourist track! 

We'll show you where the real Florentines dine: from trattoria's with incredible quality at a fair price, to expensive ristoranti for the absolute best in the city. (Once in your life, you should indulge in this experience!)

Buon Appetito from the StudentsVille staff!


Cafès in Florence

A little bit of an explanation is needed regarding Bars and Cafés in Florence and in Italy: If you want a cappuccino, orange juice or cioccolata calda (hot chocolate) then head for a 'Bar' (strange but true!).


There are hundreds of restaurants in Florence and the quality is excellent almost everywhere!

On this page, we've selected some of the restaurants we prefer in town, not only for the quality of food and wine, but also for price, location and atmosphere.



Even if the pizza in Florence is not as good as in Naples, we have selected the best places where you can eat very well and where, at least for the moment, only Florentines go. If you really like pizza you have to visit these 'temples!'

Fast Food

Florence is rich of typical fast food restaurants where you can eat delicious lampredotto & trippa panini (cow stomach sandwiches! - they're good - trust us) and even excellent 'Pizza al taglio' (pizza by the slice).
