My husband and I reserved a table for La Buchetta a few months in advance because I was impressed with the tripadvisor reviews, and wanted to eat here for New Years Eve. We were not disappointed. The food was some of the best Italian food I had in Florence. The Service was perfect. Servers spoke English well, so that was... More

We went here for lunch based on Trip Advisor reviews. I had the gnocchi which was delicious. My son ordered the steak with blue cheese in the sauce - unfortunately when we were listening to the description from the waiter, we just heard 'blue cheese' which my son loves, but missed the part about walnuts, which he has an intolerence...

We went entirely by its reputation on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The loquacious owner explained all the dishes accurately and we all enjoyed our various choices of gnocchi, ribollita and leek, potato and spinach cake. The fiorentina steak between three of us was superb, as was the filet mignon and tagliatta. Some of us ordered dessert! Tiramisu and... More

Another recommendation from our driver, Dimitri, that was the perfect suggestion. A small, intimate dining room, beautifully appointed with a wine cork theme (in a very classy way - not tacky at all), with some of the best food we had during the entire trip. Everything was perfect and the wait staff and owner were extremely attentive.

We ordered the Caprese to start, which was perfectly fresh and ripe tomatoes and cheese that melts in your mouth. Between the two of us, we split the Bistecca Fiorentina which was 1.2 kg beautiful piece of meat. They weighed it in front of us before cooking medium rare / rare and with a bottle of wine recommended by the... More

We actually went twice within three days, which must be a recommendation in itself. Very pleasant staff: our waiter spoke excellent English! Not difficult to find; past the Uffizi from the Ponte Vecchio; turn left at the next bridge and there you are !! At 7.30pm most customers were tourists but, fear not, atmosphere and food are very Italian. On... More

Everything about this meal was great. We stumbled across La Bruchetta and decided to stop in. Best decision of our vacation! The wine: perfect; the steak: delicious; most importantly, the service: exceptional. Our waiter took the time to explain the menu, list recommendations/house specialties and ensure we had an exceptional experience. If you are looking for an intimate setting and... More
