“Authentic Tuscan in its best - interesting to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

Osteria means very typical restaurant. Brucia Tegami is probably very hot (burning) grill plate. The restaurant was open in Dec of last year. However, it is very loyal to the local tradition. I'm very curios at looking in the kitchen. Here I could see young staff that seemed very local and very excited about what they do.

The menu is simple, but every item in the menu has its own twist. We had dinner for a family of 5. Our 3 kids are 8 - 12. We followed the staff recommendation and had local Chianti wine with fresh vegies in a form of a salad and grilled. All were great. We had two types of Taglitalia that is home made. One with tomato sauce and the other one with ragu. Both were made to perfection.

The mains were grilled beef. The special one was flat piece of grilled meat with tomato and capers on the top - great! The sliced beef was great piece of meet with great tastes grilled to perfection.

Don't miss the deserts - especially the Tiramisu.

The place is simply decorated and small. It offers simple and good atmosphere. There is no outside dining, but the interior is air-conditioned. The peak season for them is out of the summer when they serve mostly locals. We were lucky to get a recommendation from the nearby hotel.

I do recommend this experience.

Fresh pasta, good wine, friendly service, what else do you want? The place a bit hard to spot but it is worth it.

“Three times we ate here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

This was our favorite restaurant on our visit to Florence. The service and food is exceptional. I highly recommend a reservation or early arrival or you will not get a table. It was so great that we ate here three times during one week. Their menu changes daily. One of the owners speaks English. We tasted many things on the menu and can surely say that everything is great. From Appetizers, to Pasta or their great Beef meals and not to forget Seafood you can't go wrong.

Absolutely Terrific.
