This is a little gem worth visiting for a quick lunch. We had the pasta with wild boar which was really good. All their pasta is home made.

Just wandering around you're never sure what you're going to get. This restaurant was recommended to us and it was great. Very affordable, good selection. The house wine was tasty and priced right. We had one order of the Florentinian steak special and it was everything they said it would be.

We came here for dinner following the really good reviews. Service was very good and friendly but the food was disappointing. We had pasta and the sauces were bland. The tomato sauce was really oily. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant - there are so many better options in the area.

Everything we ordered was excellent. The service was good, the house wine was better. We ordered the Bisteca Alla Fiorintine (Rare T-bone steak) and the waiter was not offended after we tried it and asked him to put it back on the fire for a few more minutes. The end result: Excellent!

We were on our way back to the hotel when we discovered this restaurant. The waiter was very welcoming and chatty. We wanted to try the bistecca so we took the menu of 20€. It was very much worth of the money! All in all it was great experience and one of the best discoveries in Florence.

Osteria Brincello does not look like much from the outside, but once you enter you find bright, tasteful decor, a varied, reasonably priced menu and very good service. In addition to the regular menu they offered a variety of specials including a good sized Florentine Steak for 20 euro which was well prepared and tasted delicious. Paired with the house... More

Visited on 10/02/16. Great food and an even greater service. Thumbs up to those who were working on the night - one to remember. Definitely recommended.

Living quite close for my 7 months stay in Florence, Brincello became one of my favourites. The home made pasta dishes are all amazing, as are their steaks. And their dishes of the day always offered a bit more variety with the same excellent quality. Fried ravioli was always a favourite appetiser. Not once did I have an even an... More

Pasta was average. Gnocchi texture was soft and pillowy but a little gummy. Pici with al sugo and mushroom tasted watered down and too much rosemary. However their Bistecca Fiorentina looked great. Servers brought out the piece of meat to ask the diners if they were happy with the piece. The char marks they got on the meats looked perfect!!!
