Uffizi: Il Boccale

Borgo SS. Apostoli 33 , Phone: 055.283384


Reviewed by: Geralyn from CT, review #1410

When: 2005

Cozy neighborhood restaurant with one very enthusiastic waiter, terrific pastas and complimentary digestivi. Full of repeat customers.

We were looking for an affordable, air-conditioned restaurant near the Ponte Vecchio and found this gem.

Only 9 tables and all eventually filled with tourists, but we could tell that many were repeat customers. One of us ordered off of the tourist menu (they had two, at 10 and 14), five of us off of the regular menu. There were many choices of pasta and my non-pasta-eating son loved the Tagliarini al Salmone. I thought that the Gnocchi Gorgonzola were heavenly. Frittura di Calamari was a small portion, but excellent, light and crispy.

After the meal, our waiter offered all of us a complimentary amare digestivo, which thrilled my 16 yr. old son to no end. Dinner for 6, 2 courses each with 1 liter of house white, 2 liters acqua, fantas & sprites for only 110.
