One of the rare real florentine places, off the main tourist track. Great meat and local vine. Simple, with photos of the old Florence on the walls, friendly atmosphere. Worth visiting.

We came in without booking a table, bad idea. The only available table was the one next to the bathroom door... A spot do not recommend. We had the classic T-Bone Bistecca, was huge and real good, and some pomodoro pici, good also. Waiters weren't very talkative or warm... So good food but poor experience.

The is a well known restaurant in Florence so be sure to make a reservation. You won't find many tourists in this place and by 9pm the place is packed. Food is fresh and well prepared and the waiters are excellent. House wine was very good. HIGHLY recommend this place.

We went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening. It was crowded and we were probably the only English speakers in the restaurant. We had a reservation, otherwise we probably wouldn't have been able to get in. The waiter made us feel at home, explaining the Italian menu. We ordered the house wine which was delicious, a salad to share.... More

We was recommended I' Brindellone by the hotel we was staying at whilst in Florence, who suggested the restaurant was in an area “where the locals eat” and would provide an authentic experience away from the tourist areas. Our hotel made a reservation for us and we arrived at the 7.30pm opening time. There was only one other couple in... More

It's a simple restaurant, with simple menu, but everything that you order is very nice. You should probably make reservations, but the day we went there we were lucky to find one table for us.

We tried this iconic Florentine dish in a few restaurants during our 3 week trip to Florence in September and this was the best by far.This is a small casual restaurant with friendly staff. We had one of the best meals of our vacation here. You need a reservation but it is worth the extra effort. I highly reccomend L'Brindellone.
