We visited La Spada on the advice of the barman in our hotel (always a good source of information) and were really pleased with our meal.
The restaurant is immediately inviting with it's wood fired grill going and this made for great steaks and grilled meats. Add a nice bottle of chianti to that and you can't go wrong.
Service was perhaps a touch slow, but we weren't in any hurry so not a problem for us.
Would happily come again.

La Spada is a lovely restaurant a block off of Via Tournabuoni in Florence. The staff is very friendly and helpful with the menu. We had both a pasta dish, grilled meat and grilled vegetables and everything was delicious. The house wine was pretty good also. We visted for lunch in February, so no crowds.

May be we caught the restaurant on a bad night, but one starter (spaghetti carbonara) was tasteless and one main course (rosticceria) contained more salt than the Dead Sea.

Plus the single server was inattentive and took my credit card out of sight for charging without a word.

Firenze provides many good restaurant experiences, this was not one of them.

I found this place by chance and was initially attracted by the set menu at lunchtime and the fact that there were other tables of 'solo diners'. At first I believed that this was a business type restaurant where office workers would come for a cheap lunch, but I then realised that is was popular with a very wide variety of people, locals and tourists alike.

The staff was polite and helpful. The service was quick and efficient. The set menu was generous and well cooked/presented. I did not even notice the portions being that much smaller than those from the A la Carte menu. The soup was particularly good.

I added 1/4 litre of wine and coffee to my order and still managed to spend less than 20 euros! This, for Florence, is a bargain.

I would definitely go here again when on a day trip as it was a welcomed rest point, and the staff did not hassle me to eat up and leave.
