It had been a couple of years since seeing Franco & eating at II Porcospino. Things have not changed & still our favorite place to eat & drink in Florence. The fried artichokes were a favorite this trip. Thinking of you Franco as we transition the presidency here in US tomorrow! Your liberal friends from CT!!

Just wandered in after visiting the Mercato Centrale. Our server was welcoming and informative. Good retreat to spend a leisurely lunch after a morning of walking. All five of us were pleased with our menu choices.

We love the food, staff, wine. Franco who took care of us during our visit several years ago was away on Holiday, but Tony and Fabio did not disappoint. We did not order from the menu... It was a slow night so Tony and Fabio took great care of us w both food and wine. Pitchers of house wine and... More

It's our own fault as we didn't check Trip Advisor before sitting down and saw the sun hitting the out door portion of this tourist trap. The waiters were all really funny and we did enjoy a lot of banter with them. But the food was so bad compared to what else you can get eat in Florence. Avoid.

On holiday from Australia, we came here for dinner looking for an authentic Italian meal. We chose well! We were warmly greeted by our host who quickly put us at our ease and offered to tailor our menu just for us. Our home made pasta meals were simply delicious, and were well complimented by the wine.

We booked this restaurant via the tripadvisor app with a 50% discount and it was really nice! The stuff was friendly and the service quick. The food was delicious we tried pasta and pork, the ingredients were fresh and the house wine was very good too. The prices with the discount were very affordable.
