  • Excellent location and Good Food Visited here in May. Florence was the usual, ram jammed with visitors, but the outside tables and view of the cathedral, plus the opportunity to people watch was irresistible. Starter of Octopus with chickpeas was excellent, succulent tentacles perfectly seasoned and delicious. Followed up with the steak Fiorentina which I can never resist. Cooked on an open wood grill it too was very good, perfectly done rare, good crust, very tender meat. Be aware that the minimum portion size is 600g, so it's going to cost you €27 at least. Sides are also a bit pricey, at €4+. Staff were really attentive, and you do get to see the whole world pass by.
  • Amazing experience! Great food and service!
  • Food was what we expected but the wine list is real pricey and the food is at the high end of moderate. The tagliatelle with porcini and truffle oil had good flavor but the noodles were pretty thick. What we had in Venice were better. The lasagne was average. The pomodoro and bread soup was really good while the minestrone was what you should expect from any decent Italian restaurant. It's a basement, hence the "Buca". Not sure why one review mentions the views because there aren't any.
  • Great location and service Good food
  • The mushroom pasta with the truffle was not what it stated on the menu as it said cream and truffle I got nice pasta with mashed mushroom and chunky absolutely revolting thick soggy mushrooms witch was more like mushroom soup. wouldn't recommend as over priced and the cover charge was expensive and the pore food quality 👎👎

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
