As we have said several times, eating in Italy is a ritual taken very seriously!

The most traditional dish in town is, of course, the Bistecca alla Fiorentina (“Florentine steak”), which is wonderful! In cities like Florence, the best tip I can give you is: don’t go to tourist restaurants. The best restaurants, which are also frequented by the locals, are on the side streets, those that nobody pays much attention to. They are frequently small doors and, usually, family businesses, generation after generation, which gives the dishes the authentic Florentine and homemade flavor. Visit our Section on Food in Italy!

Important Tips

  • Do a lot of research before you travel, ask your friends for tips, read a lot about the restaurant you intend to visit, so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises.
  • Avoid ordering dishes from other regions in local restaurants, they feel very offended, many of them do not even include dishes from other regions on the menu.
  • For dinner, reservation is normally required. Anyway, make the reservation, especially if you are traveling in high season.
  • Be sure to ask for suggestions at the hotel where you are staying: they usually have a list of excellent restaurants close to the hotel and, if you are lucky, you may even receive a discount, as many hotels have agreements with the indicated restaurants.
  • Ask if the hotel restaurant where you are staying serves lunch and / or dinner: sometimes a great restaurant is right under our nose and we don’t realize it.
  • Don’t be afraid to “discover” a new restaurant. Is research important? Yes, but sometimes being surprised by a new place can be fantastic.
  • Remember that if you are driving DO NOT DRINK! As tempting as wine may seem, drink and driving DO NOT MATCH, O.K.?!
  • If you have entered a restaurant and found that it is not for you, do not hesitate to change the restaurant! Sometimes we think “since I’m here…”; don’t fall for it! Change without getting a guilty conscience.
