We have visited this restaurnt becauce of the suggestion from our hotel. First of all, Osteria del Milione has one of the best location near Florence, at the top of the hill with a panaromatic view.
And here stops the romance.
We came into restaurant around 7 PM, only 3 tables were occupied by another guests, but there was a lot of reservations (for late evening).
We were seated by waiter inside (because there was no free table outside). 15 minutes after beeing seated, we have asked for Menu Carte. Another 15 minutes later we have asked to order some wine and meal. They were about 3 waitres there, but they have no system for their work, so they just walked around us without any question and interest.
Served food (variation of cold starters) and pasta were average for Tuscany ( as we have seen later during our holiday). After finishing the main course, we´ve waited another 15 minutes to ask for reciept.
Our suggestion for owner is to practice much more with the staff and trainee them for 1st class service.

What an amazing restaurant! I loved it!
Stefano and his son Lorenzo serve some of the most genuine Tuscan food I ever ate... DELICIOUS!
The new summer menu is brilliant and I keep on going back to the restaurant because I want to taste all of the dishes. Start your dinner with some COCCOLI AND PARMA HAM and some LIVER CROSTINI... Than try the pasta called PICI, amasing fresh pasta a sort of very thick noodles served with pecorino cheese and black pepper followed by there famous BISTECCA ALLA FIORENTINA (Florentine steak). Do not forget there unique selection of cheeses and desserts!
The locatio is just breath taking one of the best view of florence great for romantic dinners or a big table with friends. I am a big fun of Stefano & Lorenzo's work and of course I love the food and the lovely chianti called PUTTANO! You must try all of the menu, pure genius!
Thank you guys for the food and the great nights at your restaurant and see you soon :) Gary + Steven & Logan

On July 4th 2012, while in Florence, my wife and I and another couple that were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary went to this restaurant, Osteria del Milione, which it just outside of Florence located on one of the hills. It’s about 10-20 minutes taxi ride from we were staying. It was recommended by NH Porta Rossa Hotel whom also made the reservation. As you walk into the property, you see olive trees, fig trees, flowers, herbs. You then walk by their fire pit, where different types of meats are being grilled, to the patio where you can see the spectacular views of the country side are spectacular with Florence in the distance.

You have a choice of eating on the patio or inside. We were seated on the patio. The evening was very comfortable. We choose with the house wine, which was excellent. We started with appetizers then to first and second plate then to dessert. The food was excellent. The staff spoke English and were very helpful and polite.

This is one place where you do not rush, it’s a 2-3 hour meal, but worth every minute. If you ever in Florence, stop by, I hope you will enjoy it as I did.
