“great for breakfast, so so for food”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

the breakfast options are great and not very expensive; the burgers, however, are not amazing. the place was really busy on a saturday night, which is fine, but it's a bit odd when you feel you're being pushed away so as to release the table.
staff is nice in any case and it's good for a change, if you don't feel like italian food.

“SORRY GOES A LONG WAY”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

On Nov 1, 2013 I wrote a bad review following a bitter experience with the restaurant's customer service.

After a month I went back and management profusely apologized for the bad experience, and awarded us a free lunch. It's wonderful their willingness to take responsibility and apologize, not many restaurants in Florence would do the same.

Go to The Diner and know people there truly care, it's great!

“Really great spot”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

This place was a welcome break from Italian food after 3 weeks in Italy. The food is standard diner fare- nothing fancy, but familiar and comforting. The service was always excellent, and quite quick. I went there several times, and was pleased with the food every time. It does get a little busy, but not more so than most other restaurants at meal times. If you're in Florence, it's definitely worth dropping by.

“Real meat”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

I'm not used to eating red meat but when it comes to these burgers...temptation got me! They are very good! It tastes like home-made beef patties and you can rest from pizza and pasta.
It's better to avoid lunch or dinner time, specially on weekends since it will be full and you'd need to wait, it's better to have a late lunch or late dinner!
The fries don't taste as good as the rest of the plate, but it's a big and very good burger! You can leave them aside.
