Osteria dell'Agnolo is a friendly full service restaurant open everyday from noon until late evening. Multi-lingual waiters and waitresses are happy to help!

Directions: In the vicinity of the Duomo

I have been traveling to Florence for over 10 years at least once a year and sometimes twice. Osteria dell'Agnolo is where I go most of the time for a quick pizza or a full meal.

Osteria dell'Agnolo is conveniently located in the historic center of Florence right near the Duomo. The osteria, which translates to Inn, is a warm and welcoming place, good for couples, families and even large parties. You may sit at a counter or a table upstairs or downstairs; there's plenty of room. I'm always seated immediately when I arrive, they have menus in many languages and the waitresses will be happy to explain every dish to you. The food varies from antipasto to your choice of any kind of pizza from a wood fired oven, to the most tantalizing Italian specialties, but the Tuscan dishes are excellent. There is a full service bar as well as a fine selection of wines, I've never been disappointed by the wine. They also have a fine selection of desserts. Make Osteria dell'Agnolo part of your itinerary and say hello from me!

A restaurant that was open all day, but didn't advertise "tourist menu". Good food and great service.

We ate here several times in our 2 weeks in Florence. Outstanding dishes were the minestrone; salad with shrimp, white beans, cheese, and arugula; seafood salad; spaghetti vongole; cheese plate.

We ate both lunches and dinners here and the service was always good, the waiters friendly, and they remembered us after a couple of meals there (me and my long list of allergies!).

For 2 people, we usually had an antipasto and a first or second course, plus either dessert or a liqueur plus a liter of house white wine and that was about Euro58.00. Judging by the number of young people they served, there were probably cheaper items on the menu. But we weren't in Italy to skimp on food and wine.

I even did the unspeakable and asked for a doggie bag when I couldn't eat all my cheese plate at lunch. The waitress didn't make any indication that it was not acceptable and made me up a nice carry out. That was my dinner that evening, so that brought the price down.

I would definitely go there again and would recommend it to others. It's very conveniently located near the Duomo.
