" Amazing! "

We left full, in love with the food, and with 2 tins of their housemade olive oil. My only sadness is that we didn’t find this place before our last day in Florence!

" Il Desco Bistrot! "

This is a small restaurant with very nice staff. The food is very tasteful and made with good and biological products. As I have several food intolerances, eating in restaurants can be very stressful, but here the staff was very kind and helpful. It has gluten and lactose free options, not many, but delicious.

Had 2 apps and 2 mains (prosciutto plate, codfish mousse, spinach flan, and Lasagna Bolognase) plus a bottle of wine, a dark chocolate orange and cardamon molten cake, plus 2 espresso. Everything was awesome and prepared in Front of us in the open kitchen. All the flavours were perfect and simple and amazing. I can see why it’s Michelin Star rated.

Having experienced traditional Florence cuisine, if you wish to try a Florence chef that cooks natural ingredients with fresh flavours without being too fine dining this is the place to go. Service is great. Wine is good.
