Stumbled across this place when our original dinner plans didn't work out. With no reservation we were seated. The restaurant is long and has two different entrances on different streets. Waiter had good English and could explain the set menu deals as that was the only part of the menu not translated. We both had the same set menu as we wanted to try the local special t bone steak. Very good value for quality. €35 each for 4 courses. Steak was perfect! Came out very full. Loved it

Florence is filled to the brim with restaurants, so it helps to ask the locals where the best food can be found. So many meals we had in Florence were so-so. La Spada was recommended to us by the owner of a similar restaurant just down the street. The inside decor is stunning and cozy and the food was divine. To say the portions are huge is an understatement. We started with a charcuterie plate followed by the traditional reboilita soup which, in my opinion, was outstanding. We had the specialty in Florence, Bistecca ala Florentina. It is an experience just sharing that steak with someone. Dessert was amazing as well. Best part was probably the service. Our waiter spoke excellent English and was so friendly and helpful. Please visit this restaurant while you are in Florence.
