Today I’ll bring to the discovery of a restaurant that, including location, food and efficiency of the staff, will make, even more memorable, your stay in Florence. It is called “Lungarno 23”, like its address and to describe it to you, I’ll begin right from its location, so central to allow you to dine a few metres from Ponte Vecchio, admiring perhaps the most suggestive point of the city, the Uffizi Gallery, in front of Piazza Della Signoria’s Tower, with a glimpse of the dome of the Duomo and of Giotto’s Bell Tower. All together. Only this view could be enough to sit at their table, then plus the excellent quality of your dishes.

The “Lungarno 23” cuisine is rich of love, definitely linked to Tuscan tradition, its famous meats and the best wines of our vineyards. If you decide to follow my advice, you should try at least one of the burgers of the menu, they are absolutely wonderful as the combinations they propose, the abundant portions, the contours and accompanying sauces that make them a unique experience.

Great deserved goes to the extreme quality of raw materials, from meat 100 % Original Chianina, certified with I.G.P. mark Brand (protected geographical indication), amazing cheese, passing for season vegetables, all so fresh and traceable, like their own philosophy imposes, here “quality is a mission”. To give you greater confirmation I also advise you to test their Tartare (lean and raw meat) to have proof of it. But for all the pasta  lovers, even better if fresh and handmade, I assure you that they’re so incredibly good in first dishes, as in starters (what is better than  broad beans and pecorino cheese?!?!) and the homemade desserts, prepared – as everything in the kitchen of “Lungarno 23” – according to traditional recipes and a thorough search for quality.

“We are committed to the day-to-day research of the best products. The result can be appreciated by the best sitting at our tables.” they explained to me during one of my dinners in their restaurant. Their mission is to make known and safeguard the heritage of flavours and materials of Tuscan and Italian cuisine in general, from which recipes are often drawn and which enrich the menu. As well as the beers and the wine list, in which here at “Lungarno 23”, they have always selected  the most refined companies, squeezing the eye to local and national production but also including international excellence.

I’ve already talked you about gorgeous view and the extraordinary cuisine, let’s talk about the service… impeccable. The staff is made up of prepared boys, very fast and, not last, super kind. Believe me if I tell you that in this place you’ll feel like at home, of course a precious one, with a view (if possible, ask for dinner in the dehor) with no comparison and which offers the possibility to park in the nearest garage, to have a menu for children, to use the ” boys library ” and with a “Dog-friendly ” spirit.

An excellent quality / price ratio makes the “Lungarno 23” an experience absolutely to do, while your stay in Florence!
