nice decor, ok pizza (nothing special), super aperol spritz, average service and very annoying 15% service added to bill - it should be discretionary & wasn't worth 15%!!

We came across this place by locals recommending it. The family who owned the restaurant were in the restaurant having lunch at the same time as us, and it really made you feel at comfortable. They were all really nice and we spoke to the whole family at the end of our meal. They had a wide range on their... More

It looks like just another tacky, tourist-trap from the outside, but on the inside the restaurant is lovely and the food is delicious. There is a huge pizza oven just as you walk in and the kitchen is completely open so you can see everything being made. It is about 5-10 minutes walk form the main square, but it worth... More

We went here to celebrate my daughter's birthday while in Florence. It was fantastic! The building is beautiful and the food is amazing! The staff was friendly and welcoming. I think everyone on staff come over to our table to wish her a Happy Birthday!

We had a fantastic night at Ciro and Sons. Beautiful food, service and atmosphere. Everything on the menu could be made gluten free without any fuss. I had the pizza. It is the only gluten free pizza in Italy that I have finished as the base tasted incredible. Planning to buy the mix to make it at home. Disappointed when... More

This is a prideful family owned restaurant and deservedly so. The atmosphere is between formal and funky combined with professional yet friendly and fun staff make it amazing for couples. Formal dinning or family dinners.. the food is first class and well priced for decent meal sizes.. highly recommend to everyone.

Ciro created this eating landmark in the shadow of San Lorenzo and has attracted many visitors from far and wide. Based on a recommendation we stopped by very early one evening for simple pizza and wine, and were a tad concerned that it's a tourist trap. The room filled up quickly and the excellent wait staff was professional, friendly, and... More

The best prices in the area for the most delicious food!!! 2from 3evenings we dine here and will come back if will come to Florence again! For big companies reservation is needed, because the place is always full. Best pizza, beef Wellington is amazing, risotto con porcini, penne arrabiata.... Everything is very delicious here!
