We tried Baldovino based upon recommendations from people who had previously stayed at our same location in Florence. They raved about how great the pizza was. Although we found all the ingredients to be fresh, the pizza tasted like an average pizza that we would get back home (in the US). We were satisfied with the first course of pasta... More

Thanks for the review Josie, we are happy you enjoyed the friendliness of our service and fresh ingredients. We regret not having fulfilled your expectations, pizza by us is in high demand because cooked in a wood oven, though each has its ideal of Pizza. We hope to see you again to change your opinion.

The best pizza in Florence. Tasty, quick, cosy, friendly, cheap. Amazing waiter Darina is a true spirit of the place and a real soul mate. Perfect service, fresh food. During our 3-day stay in Florence that was THE place. Strongly recommended.

The restaurant was OK. We had lousy service, provided for by an older waiter with no people skills and very antagonistic and showed clearly to be displeased with being there. I am truly sorry to have gone. We were about 12 people, spent good money but....... There are better eateries in Florence. As a matter of fact "most" of them... More

Good evening Monteco. We are really sorry your experience at Baldovino wasn't positive. We believe our guests should be the center, from the welcome to the choice of the dishes. Sometimes, when there is a greater influx of visitors this attention can be less in some cases. We welcome your valuable comments that will be examined, and we hope to... More

this restaurant serves delicious pastas, no frills, just a few high quality ingredients are all they need to capture the taste of Italy. The very good chocolate cake was quite heavy and rich. Very friendly service.

Recommended by TA and with 20% off on a Weds during Pitti we were drawn in! A really tasty and suitably small melanzana parmigiana to start for me along with salmon and burrata and tartufo for Rob. Delicious - just right. We opted for a bottle of €20 Chianti Classico which didn't come with the discount and was fine as... More

We were led here by a tour guide so had no idea what we would get. Ended up with hugs from our waiter and a wonderful meal. Really good food. Lots of little rooms so the size is deceiving from outside. Intimate and worth your making a visit. We enjoyed salad with salmon and pizza for lunch. Then we went... More

We were all very pleased with our meals. We stuck with comfort food on a cold winter day: the minestrone soup, salmon carpaccio, marguerita pizza, spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti with truffle cream and sausage, sautéed spinach. These dishes are all pretty hard to mess up but the food was delicious nonetheless.

We were staying near Santa Croce and wanted to find somewhere close by to have dinner. We came across Baldovino just a short distance from the piazza. Booked a table for seven and was warmly welcomed by our waiter. We were given a room in the back of the restaurant which suited us as we like to have a laugh... More

Amazing! Hands down one of the nicest, cozy bistros I've ever been too. Atmosphere is quiet and reserved, very elegant. Would highly recommend stopping while in Florence. Prices are reasonable too with a wide selection on the menu.
