We stumbled across this by accident and we're glad we did. Great Falafel and apple pie and my partner had the vegetables, couscous and harissa paste followed by the blintzes. Really enjoyed it and if you want something different it's well worth finding.

Ruths is a kosher vegetarian dairy restaurant right next to the great synagogue of Florence which has an excellent Jewish museum.
Food was tasty service was excellent. Personnel were very friendly. Unfortunately they are only open from 1230 to 1430 and 1930 to 2200. Many restaurants that are not in major tourist areas have similar hours, but if you want a good kosher restaurant you don't have much choice as they are the only kosher place in town.However, we highly recommend this restaurant for all.

We were only in Florence for a day and we deliberately sought out Ruths after we'd found the shul. Have to say the restaurant was lovely and the service was great. We had a mixture of falafel and pasta and all plates were delicious. Definitely make the time to drop in if you are passing.

My husband and I ate lunch and 2 dinners at Ruth's. It is very conveniently located next door to the city synagogue which is a major tourist attraction. It was quite busy and tourists were quite demanding trying to keep to their touring schedules. As this is the only kosher restaurant in Florence, the line was out the door each time we visited. Nevertheless, the staff seated everyone in due time and the food was fresh and delicious. Their minestrone soup is incredibly hearty and spinach lasagna was yum. Apple pastry was a hit for dessert. Highly recommended. Would return on our next trip!
