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.

Did it again this week during a short three day stay in Florence. I had visited this place before, both on business as well as on private occasions, and once again, Baldovino confirmed why I keep going back. Warm, friendly welcome, no fuzz and frills, the fiorentina ordered was shown before they put it on the grill to confirm the... More

We happened upon this place by chance when in the Santa Croce area.We went for the pizzas, my wife has a Napoli style Margherita and an Aperol Spritz, I went for a cheese and mushroom pizza and some Chianti Classico.

Simply good. A proper tuscan place with an outstanding fiorentina and a great pappa al pomodoro . Close to santa croce you won't find all the tourists tou can meet around piazza della signoria and this is a great upside if you seek relax and quite places. Prices reasonable. Highly recommended.
