Description: We are located in the historic center of Florence, between Piazza del Duomo and San Marco and we offer a simple and tasty cuisine, made with the freshest ingredients of the highest quality. We owned a small farm in Reggello that provides us vegetables, fruit and extra virgin olive oil certified organic by ICEA. For this reason our menu is seasonal and changes every three months according to the production of the garden. The focus is on offer vegetarian dishes and great attention is paid to the Gluten Free offer, almost everything on the menu is suitable for people with celiac disease! Limited offer of meat, but always available in most traditional recipes:)

Our Tuscan culinary highlight to date. This restaurant thinks deeply and creatively in putting together great food and wine. Thanks to the staff and chef Fabio for a memorable fine dining experience at a fraction of the cost you would find elsewhere.

My birthday was right near the end of a 3 month cycling trip in Italy. We tried Il Desco two nights before the day, and decided the food was so great we would go back and have the whole Tasting Menu - 4 courses of delicious food, (with organic vegetables) and (beautifully) matched wines. At 40 Euros (33 E without the wine) it was a snip. You know the food, where when you put it in your mouth, your brain thinks it's gone to heaven? Well, this was it. The friendly service, and knowledge of the wines, was as good as the food. Thank you Il Desco, for a splendidly memorable dinner! How we wish we lived in Firenze - we'd be regulars!

This is a really nice restaurant. A small menu with fresh food sourced locally. It is simple and very well done. The service was friendly. Small and intimate. Well worth trying.

ordered the evening special. was brought to me in less than 5 minutes. not exactly made to order.
reviewed the lists of potentially allergic foods. they mistranslated arachidi as pine nuts which in fact are peanuts. for the non italian speaking could be deadly.
not an italian native speaker in the restaurant
