Le Fonticine was recommended by our Hotel. We got there a Saturday night without reservation. Oh well, no problem. Give us a very nice table. Very romantic place. Super Mario was such a great server and welcoming to us. We went back the next day and enjoy the best meal in Florence. You have to try this restaurant. Lots of... More

Visited with my wife on a brief trip as it was almost next to the equally excellent hotel Glance where we stayed and you don't need to bother hunting for anywhere else to eat, absolutely excellent meal and although we had relatively simple but superbly cooked dinner it is a carnivores delight if that's your thing!

Don't be put off by the small room when you enter, there is a much larger room out back, so they can accommodate more people than it first appears. Our meal was wonderful overall, and the lamb chops, in particular, were outstanding. The service was attentive. This place is quite close to the Central Market, so plan your route if... More

Tried the Bistecca alla Florentina steak here and it was mind blowing good. Linguine alla vongole was tasty and portion was generous. The desserts - chocolate cake and caramel cake was divine as well. Attentive service staff. Definitely one of the best restaurants to go to in Florence.

I was very much looking forward to the bistecca alla fiorentina at this restaurant based on the reviews, but I was sorely disappointed. I ordered the bistecca alla fiorentina and a mozzarella and tomato appetizer. The appetizers came promptly and was fine. And then I waited and waited and waited for my steak. I finally called the maître d over,... More

Very nice ambiance, warm welcoming staff. We were greeted by everyone, even the chefs busy grilling wonderful looking steaks in the open kitchen. Food was excellent. One issue. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter poured a half glass for my husband to approve, which he did. After the waiter left the table we noticed the glass was dirty.... More

Upon walking in, we were greeted at the door as family. Prices of the menu were a bit pricey, yet casual atmosphere. It was quiet and low lit when we got there early in the evening. Pasta dishes were quite delicious and filling. Service was quick. They also have a dessert case right in the middle of the restaurant were... More
