“Great Food, Service and Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

We loved LeFonticine. Super Mario took great care of us. He recommended a great wine for our dinner and made sure we felt welcome and special. I had the grilled beefsteak with balsamic and my wife had grilled chicken. Both dishes were delicious and the salad was nice and fresh. The meal was reasonably priced and we say go see Super Mario and tell him Chris sent you!

“Great find in Florence”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Great ambience and excellent service. Started with the insalata Lorenzo di Medici and had the Cinghiale as a main course. Paired the salad with the house Sangiovese and the main course with a glass of the Rosso di Montalcino, both excellent. The food was excellent and when the chef heard me speaking Italian with an American accent, came out to say hi and converse about New York, very enjoyable :)

“Expensive but good”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

Really excellent Bistecca in very pleasant surroundings. Attentive staff. The restaurant was surprisingly large after coming through the small street frontage. The bill for 2 came to 90€, for this we had no starter and Bistecca for 2 (huge), a shared tiramisu and bottle of chianti. The beef was top quality. An enjoyable evening despite being locked in the lavatory!!

“Wonderful food & service”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Our hotel booked the table for us and right from the start we were treated like old friends. The food was typically Tuscan as were the surroundings and the wines were superb. We enjoyed our first meal so much we went a second time and were given complimentary aperitifs and after dinner drinks.

“classic Bistecca alla Fiorentina”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

My wife and I stayed literally across the road from this place in Hotel Nazionale. After a few days of great sightseeing and lots of walking! We asked the staff in the hotel where we could find a really great Bistecca alla fiorentina. Most restaurants we passed offered the dish but we wanted some local knowledge. I was surprised and a bit suspicious when the said we must try Le Fonticine as it was 30 seconds away. Entering the place allayed some of my trepidation as it is a terrific looking venue, very Florence, winding through various dining areas filled with mostly local customers. we chose a semi open garden area at the rear. The waiter was of the old school and to be honest that is the beauty of Florence, the service is meant to be offhand and quirky. he was great and enthusiastically recommended some good Red.
We both ordered the Bistecca and it was magnificent. Done the way I believe it should. Nice flaming almost crust on the surface with medium to rare centre. Only complaint was I could not finish it it was so filling. The atmosphere made us really happy and would recommend to all our friends to give it a run. Well done guys.
