Ristorante Arrosto Girato.

Restaurants in Florence city centre:
Ristorante da Mario 
Via Rosina 2r (corner Piazza del Mercato Centrale) Firenze, Italia
Another Florentine institution, the wine bar has been run in the traditional style by the same family for more than 60 years. Rigorously open only for lunch, closed on Sundays.
The website reads: “no reservations, cash only. We accept neither debit nor credit cards. We will take your name at the entrace and will accommodate you as soon as space becomes available. We eat together with the other guests.
I continue reminding you not to ask for well done steak, which is used only for Juventus fans.

Mercato Centrale
Via Generale dalla Chiesa, 13 50136 Firenze
Mercato CentraleFirenze gives back to the city an ideal marketplace of taste, redeveloping a vital venue in central Florence.
It’s a rebirth that returns artisans and their produce to the heart of the food scene.


Trattoria la casalinga
Via dei Michelozzi, 9/R, 50125 Firenze (FI)
+39 055 21 86 24


When eating is not only a gastronomic experience.
If you happen to be in via dei Michelozzi at lunch or dinner time, you will certainly notice groups of people waiting in front of “La Casalinga” restaurant: they are all waiting to be seated and they might need to arm themselves with patience.
No one disputes that eating well is, in itself, an excellent reason to go to a restaurant, but when it comes to a restaurant like this, additional aspects get imprinted in the memory of the customers.


Trattoria del Carmine

Piazza del Carmine, 18, 50124 Firenze FI
Phone 0039 055 218601
Tuscan dishes, old photos, bottles of wine and paintings in a rustic room with a retro touch and a wooden ceiling.
