Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ambiance inside Ristorante Gilò was a tasteful fusion of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and contemporary Asian influences—classy, yet welcoming. The service was seamless and attentive; and our servers were the epitome of professionalism. They graciously walked our group through the menu and explained the preparation of the dishes. For a first course we shared the Burrata, it was simplicity perfected, with the richness of the cheese balanced by a very delicate and earthy shaved truffle. As a main course I ordered the Sausage and Asparagus Risotto, a harmony of robust and fresh flavors. The sausage meatballs were a surprising burst of flavor, and the risotto was the perfect texture. The dish was artistic and meticulously plated. The grand finale, a Panna Cotta with Fruit, was a visual sonnet. The striking splash of sauce brought an unexpected energy and drama to the dish, making it as thrilling to the eye as it was to the taste. The dessert was a fitting end to a meal that was nothing short of a masterpiece. Every dish at Ristorante Gilò was finished with an artist's touch—vivid, photo-worthy, and packed with flavors that danced delicately on the palate. This restaurant is a must-visit!

Extraordinary Quality of Food, Service and kindness. We are pretty sure this restaurant will go through the roof, so do not miss to enjoy a dinner there before everybody knows. We stumbled over this diamond when looking for a good dinner in a calm and relaxing atmosphere as we had our 9-months old baby with us. We got in touch with the owner who was very kind, offered us a brand new baby chair (high quality version! ) and served the best dishes (Main Course and Desserts) we get our hands on in florence due our whole stay - and we checked out a lot of Restaurants. Best regards from Germany

We booked as were very impressed with the immaculate decor and reviews. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment, the soup was thick unlike any soup we had seen, we were told it was the Tuscan way. My pasta with truffle arrived and was just warm, they offered to replace and it was nice, but not exceptional. We both ordered the Beef Wellington which was also nice but not exceptional at €38 per portion. I cannot tell you how dissatisfied we are with this restaurant. The night before we had eaten at cucina Torcicada which was amazing for the same value!

The host was very nice and explained the menu to us as we were trying to decide if we wanted to eat there. Service was prompt. They give you bread as your waiting for your dinner which is always a plus in my book. My husband got the green pepper steak, and I got the asparagus risotto. They were both phenomenal and the steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare.

My wife and I had just returned from a six-hour excursion to Pisa on a Saturday evening, arriving back at our hotel just before 8:00 p.m. Striking out on two attempts at making reservations at other establishments, we decided to take our chances down the street from Piazza Santa Maria Novella and happened upon this hidden gem. Our glasses of wine were excellent, and the dinner that followed was exceptional. We each had the salmon and vegetables cooked to perfection. Side dishes of roasted potatoes and beans and onions were also ordered. A different take on Tiramisu, but extremely tasty capped off our evening. The service was prompt and solicitous. Arrivaderci has acquired a whole new meaning for us.

We stumbled across Gilo Restaurant very late one night and was incredibly well looked after by a lovely waiter from Sao Paolo. We ordered 2 types of pasta including the truffle pasta which was just divine. Would love to return to try the meat one day.

Whilst it was very conveniently located (literally across the road from our apartment) I did check it out before we sampled the goods. We shared a number of starters amongst our group and enjoyed some fabulous steaks. Definitely the best steaks of our trip. Great service from all the staff, who were nicely surprised by our tip. Doesn’t seem to be an Italian thing unlike US where they hunt you down with false niceness and demand a minimum 20%. Quite a few locals in which is a good sign and when we went past on other nights they were busy. Cracking decor evening street eating not for feint hearted as can be a tad busy and noisy. Sadly didn’t get a chance to return before our Florence trip ended.

Had a wonderful meal at Gilò. We ordered the house special eggplant parm, duck with pear, a Florentine steak, and the berry pannacotta. Excellent flavors and presentation. Highly recommend. Not your traditional Firenza osteria, but that’s not what you’re looking for after a night or two of traditional menu. Exclusive olive oil and Limincello, a true local experience hidden here. Ronni is the man, thank you for the excellent bar service.

5 out of 5 because it was beautiful, elegant yet understated, and quite comfortable. Also because the staff including the cook were all attentive and helpful and professional. 5 because the food was flawless and the garnishes were beautiful with intriguing tastes. We wanted extra helpings of garnish! Best risotto I have had in years, and my friend’s best lamb since she lived in Australia. House wine from bolgheri was perfect. Food was rRemarkably not over salted in this salt-loving town, and plenty of fresh and grilled vegetables balanced all the meat and pasta we have not been able to turn down. Definitely a “happy place” we can’t wait to get back to.

The food was amazing and would 100% recommend to any wanting to experience Italian food made properly. One of the most enjoyable meals we have had away on holiday. The staff were very polite & welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

The food was excellent as well as the service. I had the truffle tagliatoni, which needed a little bit of salt, but once I put the salt on it, it was amazing! My husband had the lasagna. It was very meaty and tasty. My son had the pomodoro gnocchi and it was excellent as well! The portions were good and the food was very tasty and felt like home made authentic Italian food. The servers were very nice. I definitely recommend this place.

Our night was amazing, nothing to complain about. We stumbled upon this place randomly and were greeted very warmly by the staff. Food was perfect all around, both waiters were great with us and neighbouring tables (dani & another waiter whos name i forgot). We were very well treated, werent in a rush and were served whenever we were ready for the next round of food. Highly recommend this location !

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
