It is a peculiar place and the waiters are very nice however the prices are incredibly high, we know it is Florence but 6 euros for 2 tomatoes or 10 euros for butter pasta is totally crazy! The meat is very good and also tortino...More
Sostanza is always a good experience. It's the same food as in all the other restaurants, but it's just a bit better here and the atmosphere is so nice. We were the only tourists that evening, all the others were locals.

Went for the bistecca, ate seconds of the amazing chicken with butter sauce instead. Probably hands-down one of the best, most simplest things I've eaten in my life. We sopped every piece of the sauce up with bread and pasta and ordered another serving. The...More
Trattoria Sostanza showed up on many "best of Florence" lists we looked at before our trip, and two people we met in Florence also recommended it, for good reason. It's seriously old school. No frills dining room, the walls lined with photos of folks who've...More
