Eating at the Ristorante Cafaggi is nothing less than memorable. The personnel is friendly and the hostess very helpful when it came to selecting our meal. We had a first serving of a delicately creamy pate' on white bread followed by fried shrim and squid. The fish had no trace of oil, making it light and deliscious. The main course, though, was unlike anything I've ever ate before: afettato. It consists of a huge stake, just perfect for my company of four, served in slices that seem to be pealing off the bone, accompanied by a salad. The meat had a nice crust on the outside while almost rare on the inside. It was very juicy! We washed it down by the house's own red wine. It was simply deliscious.
We ended the meal with ice cream, brought from a renown local producer, which, even if the weather was about 18 degrees C, was just perfect.
A friendly place, run by a friendly family, with great food. I won't miss to pass by again the next time I'm in Florence.

We ate here twice on our stay. Great value and excellent service. Try whatever appetizer they have in the window on that day. We had the stuffed eggplant. It was outstanding.

Family owned since the 20's and a great experience. Excellent Osobucco! Just a great place, it is bright but don't let that bother you!

The original cousin and very friendly atmosphere.
Ristorante is family owned. Original owners (over 80 years old) are till working welcoming guests.
One of the best places for calf breaded brain – the very old Toscana dish.

Delightful family restaurant, operational since 1922. Excellent food. Connie, our waitress, spoke perfect English and is the 4th generation. We were headed to a different restaurant and stopped at a small shop (nearby as it turned out). The woman there (very tactfulky) suggested Cafaggi as typical Tuscan fare. We bypassed the other restaurant and went here. So happy we did. My only criticism is the lighting--waaaay too bright. But the food and family owners were so delightful that we're going back tonight! An excellent find that I doubt many tourists go to. Highly recommend.
