Trattoria Armando



Dine with the opera stars in this elegant, family run establishment.

Upon entering the unassuming door of this small, family-run trattoria, you will be taken over by the warmth and hospitality of the family and the trattoria itself. In the main room, black and white photographs cover the walls attesting to the history of this establishment: long has it been the favourite eating place of the musicians, singers and performers of the nearby theatre, Teatro Communale, who affectionately dedicate each of their photographs to the wonderful meals prepared by Armando and his family.

The formula is simple: a warm welcome (maybe a glass of prosecco while you wait for your table to be set up?), genuine, simple, and beautifully presented regional dishes (make sure to check out the specials board and the home made desserts), a simple but selective local wine list and the feeling that you are witnessing some historical-artistic legacy – you might just also be sitting in Pavarotti's chair.

We dined at Trattoria Armando on our last evening in Florence and it was superb. I really suggest this restaurant to everyone who is fed up with eating out in the tourist area. Staff is also friendly and speak English.

Local spot in Florence for tourists as well as locals. Service was attentive and food was very good. Would definately return to this wonderful restaurant!
