Last night, a couple of my Italian friends/colleagues and I ate at Buca Lapi...all of us for the first time - though the staff treated us like old friends. As my review title suggests, we hard the Bistecca Fiorentina, along with roasted potatoes, a very nice Chianti, and a simple bowl of gelato and an espresso at the end. The food was very good - the bistecca was done correctly and had a very good flavor...better than many I have had before. I did not pick up (or see!!!) the check so I can't comment on the "value" of the meal, but it was certainly quite good. I was not a big fan of the motif (the walls and ceilings are covered in posters from around the world), but otherwise the ambiance was nice. I definitely left a satisfied customer, and I plan to return on another trip to Firenze.

This place has it all going on. The food is fabulous and so is the service! Hard to find but definitely worth the walk. The cavolo nero toast is out of this world and so is the chocolate tart!!! Wow, you must go here.

I got more than enough to eat here as a vegetarian. Food was tasty and portions huge. Unique ambience and friendly service. they even have a menu in English language, that helps! That delightful taste of food prepared with high quality ingredients and passion lingers on your tongue .....

A casual restaurant with good food but lacked the extra seasoning and oomph. We were given this place by multiple people but feel like we missed out on a another great experience. We longed for La Giostra.
