Don't bother service is rude and food ordinary

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel but it was very ordinary. The restaurant was very crowded - mainly tourists. We were seated in the corner but four other tables of couples had to get up so we could get to our table. The tables were 2 inches apart and they were very small.

By the time the bread basket had arrived and wine our plates were balancing on the edges of the table.

The service was very poor and inattentive.

I have been to many Florence restaurants and can cope with brisk efficient service but to be ignored for 30 minutes just to get the menu is a bit much.

We each had a pasta and a main and a bottle of wine and the bill for 2 was 109 euros. The food was very ordinary. We did not have dessert or coffee as I could not stand waiting any longer.

So for that price do yourself a favour and avoid this restaurant.

Lovely, white linen restaurant in the moderate to expensive range.

Cammillo Trattoria is a very pretty restaurant that seemed to attract "ladies who lunch," and when I was there an academic crowd as well. There was a nice mix of locals and tourists and the service was very accommodating. This was one of my last lunches in Florence on this trip and I had yet to have one of my favorites, fried zucchini flowers, so I had that as an appetizer and it was very good. I asked for the waiter's recommendation for a pasta dish in season and he suggested a terrific pasta with fresh peas with a light garlic and oil sauce. I still dream about that dish! I would be happy to go back for another meal here.

We ate here twice. I had a truffle and mushroom dish that was indescribably different and delicious. Very good pastas and meats. Reasonable prices.

Directions: Between Via de' Sapiti and Via dello Sprone
