Finally we found one of the best gluten free restaurants in the world, beer, pasta and pizza made in a way that tastes like normal food should and looks even better. Great service by family members and fantastic wine choices

My parents recommended this restaurant to me and my partner, and I understand why, as it is lovely, with a beautiful interior and very nice food. I assume that my parents had visited in a quieter season, where they had a more leisurely experience, whereas unfortunately our meal was rather rushed and there was little personal treatment. Nevertheless, I understand... More

My wife and I recently stayed in Florence as part of a two-week vacation in Italy. As a celiac, finding quality dining in unfamiliar places can be quite a challenge. Ciro and Sons stepped up to the challenge. The first night my wife and I split the legendary "Bistecca alla Fiorentina" . It was hands-down the best steak I've ever... More

Great restaurant, good location, friendly staff and very good food. They also have gluten free pasta and food for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Not too expensive!

This was our 3rd choice as the 2 we wanted to eat at were closed on Mondays. Truly disappointing. It clearly caters for tourists - the prices are astronomical and the quality of the food average. Especially after we went to other restaurants and sampled what Florence had to offer. Wouldn't recommend and wouldn't waste your time going there. Go... More

From the outside the restaurant appeared to have a cosy, quaint Italian feel but on the inside it was no different to a chain restaurant in the UK. There are much better options for a nice meal in close proximity. The food was ok but the drinks were limited to a German Beer and Pinot Grigiot. Both of which don't... More

Ate here for early dinner and what a wonderful restaurant. Service was excellent and food was very good. Desserts were to die for. I advise getting the pizza.

Whilst staying on a family holiday here for 5 days, we eat twice at Ciro & Sons. There is not one single thing you can complain about. The food is superb, service great & decor beautiful. I cannot wait to return to the city so I can enjoy the food here again.

Gained 10 lbs.(mostly from pizza) during my one week visit to Italy. Ciro's was clearly the best of 8 or so places. The service and friendliness of the staff was also the best.

Went here for dinner as it was close by to my hotel. The food was fantastic!! The pizza is amazing and cooked in a wood burning oven! Our waiter was so nice and helpful and recommended a great chianti to try. Great experience and great value- would highly recommend it!
