Description
This charming, hidden restaurant has deep roots in Florence - it was first opened by the Hapsburg Lorena princes. Today it serves classic Tuscan and European cuisine.

La Giostra is a fine restaurant serving Tuscan specialities. It is a typical family-run restaurant that provides good food with pride and attentive service. It is also very popular with the locals. Prices are reasonable. Portions are very generous.

This was also a more or less traditional Italian menu with some luxurious twists like truffle sauce on a veal chop. The restaurant emphasizes it’s a family run venture with photographs on the wall showing the father who is the chef (and claims to be an Italian prince) and his son, who was serving us. We were given a complimentary tray of antipasto which was delicious and very filling. It also has a good wine list. The place was very busy even though it is somewhat difficult to find on a small street with only a small sign over a doorway.

My number one restaurant recommendation in Florence. This place is great. I can't really describe it, you just have to experience this place (if you can find it on its hidden alley).

Che scorpacciata alla Giostra di Firenze, è che poi, alla fine, uscendo da un locale come questo, dove non si spende molto e si mangia molto bene, un po' di Felicità la si sente di dentro, vicino al cuore, non so. Ottimi piatti, ottimo il servizio. Un consiglio? Risotto ai funghi porcini, in primis, poi l'agnello allo scottadito, altro? Ci sarebbe anche i tortellini alla burrata. Dai che si mangia bene e qui non potete proprio sbagliare.
