Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a few steps from Santa Croce, near the famous Vivoli's Gelateria. A good choice from the menu: we had three different pasta dishes, and all were good. Crostini toscani perfectly done, and a good Bistecca. We'll go back.

This is where you go if you’d like to know what a Nonna who’s a good cook would make for her family. The decor is negligible, but the food is excellent… it’s home cooking, but excellent Tuscan home cooking. When we lived in Florence, we...used to come here about once a month, for the great, seasonal cooking, and then go next door to Vivoli for dessert.More

BEST MEALS OF THE TRIP!!!! I'm from Orange County so I'm pretty spoiled when it comes to great restaurants, but WOW this place, somewhat off the beaten path, has us wanting to return ASAP. My mom and I had the Wild Boar Pappardelle, my husband...had lasagna, and we took vegetable soup home for my grandmother. Every single dish was flavorful and amazing. The waiter was so nice and gave great recommendations for this green vegetable I believe was cooked kale. It had a slight spice and was so good we ordered extra to go. Definitely going back before we leave.More

A 5 of 5 experience. My husband and I went to Italy last year and enjoyed food at so many restaurants but this restaurant was one of the best meals we had so far. The tiramisu is amazing, the lasagna a must try. The service...was great!! I called this place a little hidden gem. It’s not too far but we found it while walking around so it was like finding q little gem.More

Getting our train ticket from Rome to Florence, the ticket agent says her favorite restaurant is Pallottino. I now understand why. Every dish we ordered was nicely platted, fresh and wonderfully tasty. The house wine was great as well. And all reasonably priced. Don’t think...twice, it’s worth it.More

As a passionate foodie who loves to eat authentic, local and good quality food I was looking forward to testing this restaurant. Excited to get to taste all these delicious dishes I went to the restaurant. Arrived, I noticed that 1 very large table was...completely free and a bit smaller one only half occupied. Three people sitting on the edge of the latter. I asked the waiter (maybe also owner) if they have a table for one. He looked around and said ‘no, no we have no space’. The other half of the table with the three women was full of used glasses, which could totally been removed. It was 9 pm on a Friday night, and I understand that it was busy, but this is not how you treat people. Clients are no cash machines but humans! And also, travelling alone does not mean you’re not willing to enjoy good food or that one should only eat at tourist traps because they have a higher turn over!More

This is in a backstreet with some outside tables- sadly the several outside tables which were empty were apparently reserved. We sat inside - probably the only people in there and next to the kitchen on a hot night. Food was okay - service minimal....Wouldn’t return.More

Trattoria Pallottino is one of my favorite restaurants in Firenze. The hosts at the B&B where we stayed, kindly made reservations for us more than a month in advance, just to ensure we had the opportunity to dine there again during our short stay. In...particular, I enjoy the roast chicken and roasted potatoes -- a nice break from all the pasta... The tomato bruschetta is also delicious, as is the pappardelle al cinghiale (wild boar ragu).More

We ate dinner at this hidden gem located near the heart of Florence. The staff working this restaurant does not speak much English, but they do offer a menu with English explanations. If possible, I would recommend trying to speak a few words of Italian...to your waiter/waitress - it’ll go a long way. Onto the food, which was excellent. We only had two dishes: the Gorgonzola Gnocchi and Eggplant Buffalo Mozzarella Spaghetti. Like many other reviews have described, the gnocchi stole the show and was incredible. While gorgonzola can be overpowering, somehow this dish’s power didn’t get old and was delightful until the last little gnocchi nugget. The staff was nice but slow, so expect a two hour dinner.More
