Of course it’s not easy to be impartial about your favourite restaurant. This place is almost like a second home for me and this place is great for a romantic dinner for two or a fun weekend dinner with girl friends. I always bring my family and visiting relatives and we often have big and loud dinners with friends. All the food is excellent and well prepared, the staff is friendly and professional. It’s that cozy place, with a terrace outside in the square, which is perfect for all seasons.
The restaurant is really as central as it can get, in a little square right next to Piazza Signoria. There are tourists but also lots of locals eating here both for lunch and dinner time. The kitchen is Tuscan and I personally love all the “antipasti”, the filled pasta (tortelli) and the “filetti” and “tagliate”, that is, grilled or fried meat in various styles. But don’t be afraid to try something else from the menu, it’s all good! Ganino is also a good place to have the traditional “bistecca alla Fiorentina”, a must when visiting Florence.
Osteria da Ganino is a perfect place for any occasion!
