Great food in a historic setting – and not a tourist in sight
Word to the wise: Although there’s no strict dress code, the Taverna del Bronzino gives off a fairly formal air, so you may want to consider dressing up a little.
Although it’s in the old house of Bronzino, built by the Modernist master in 1580, and is located just a short walk from the centre, this magnificent taverna is somehow overlooked by most tourist guides. Yet the fact it does a roaring trade with the locals demonstrates that it must be something special.
And special it is. In fact, the ever-changing Tuscan cuisine – from ravioli in lemon cream one day to Florentine steak with chestnuts the next - along with the extensive wine selection, excellent service and romantic ambience makes Taverna del Bronzino one of Florence’s finest hidden gems.
