Recommended by the Hotel Davanzati we shared a Fiorentina steak for 2 which was superb. Luigi the sommelier really looked after us generous liquor measures and a real character. We went there agin on our last night and had lobster tagliatelle which was awesome

The "Grotta Guelfa" is a necessary stop for those who are passionate about good food and love the most authentic dishes. They are dishes that remain tied to tradition and their territory but, at the same time, do not turn away from new tastes. Patrons can have their dinner in the cosy and small lounge or in the wide porch with air conditioning and lively decoration, accessible year-round. The restaurant is located near the old "Palagio dei Capitani di Parte Guelfa". From this corner of Florence, famous for its typical medieval structure, it is possible to start an amazing tour among the artistic beauties of the city.
