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.

We chose Osteria la Dolce Vita based on the slew of positive ratings on Tripadvisor ... and we're glad we did! Located in the centre of Florence near the Piazza della Signoria (and one street past two incredible takeaway "schiacchiate" shops on Via dei Cimatori...selling the traditional local sandwiches for lunch), Osteria la Dolce is small and lively, with walls lined with wine bottles and a quirky cloud and hot-air balloon installation on the ceiling. Despite being in the touristic centre of the city, the quality of the food and wine is exceptional: the Tuscan steak with pepper sauce was huge and deserving of its praise, and the friendly and professional service was outstanding (when I accidentally dropped my knife, a replacement one was brought immediately without my even having to ask for it). Along with an array of excellent wines to accompany the meal, complimentary limoncello, and very reasonable prices, Osteria la Dolce Vita is a true find ... and a restaurant to which I shall definitely be returning. Grazie, ragazzi!More

The resturant was conveniently located, staff were lovely and attentive and great value for money! The lasagna was the stand out for us and we got treated to some complimentary limoncello. Would recommend!

Such a fabulous little restaurant. The staff were so friendly and very efficient. The food was amazing and the ambience was just perfect. We found this restaurant on our first night and felt no need to go anywhere else for the remainder of our long...weekend. The Chianina steak was the definition of “melt in the mouth”. I highly recommend this great little place.More

Visited on a rainy night. We were seated next to the fridge with steaks ageing in it. This was an uncomfortable seat as every time someone opened the door, they bashed the fridge and therefore our table. We were in and out in 40 mins....The food came really fast. I had a seafood risotto which was nice, although a little salty for my taste. They do most wines by the glass but not Vermentino which was a bit disappointing! The service was friendly and the atmosphere was great. Well decorated.More

Wonderful food and service. A gem of a place, excellent food with a real sense of authentic Florence. Try the fillet steak with walnuts and Gorgonzola, a real speciality. Very friendly service

On our return to Florence in April, we were determined to once again dine at Osteria La Dolce Vita Firenze, the restaurant that hosted our first night's dinner the previous year; an experience that we remembered for not only the special food, but the great...hospitality of Antonio, the restaurant's excellent manager. The food was amazing; we shared the Lasagna Classica, and a wonderful bistecca dish, as well as the Risotto al fungi, all served by the very attentive waitstaff. We plan to dine at La Dolce Vita every time we visit the fantastic city of Florence, Italy, and recommend it highly for the good value, excellent food, and great service. Thank you, Antonio, and look forward to seeing you again...More

This place was recommended by our apartment host, and it was a fantastic recommendation. We chose steak to share which was unlike any steak experience I've had in the UK. The waiter proudly showed us an uncooked giant hunk of meat on the bone for...our approval. The steak was cooked to perfection and washed down with an afforable chianti recommended by the waiter who was sympathetic to our taste and budget. Children were warmly welcomed and accomodated. Picky child #2 motored through spagetti bolognaise and declared it the best ever.More
