When it comes to finding the best Italian cuisine, you should look no further than the restaurants in Tuscany.

The Best Restaurants in Tuscany, Italy

From family-owned and simple restaurants to luxury fine dining, you’ll find a restaurant on this list for every taste bud and budget.

Cafe Cibreo, Florence

The kids had pasta with red sauce and my sister and I had a tray of hors d’oeuvres, called vassoio di antipasti, which is a fresh vegetable-based meal. Perfect complement to a hot July day in Florence.

Nerbone at the Mercato Centrale, Florence

Ever wondered what a cow’s stomach tastes like? Well at the Nerbone you can try. Lampredotto, as it’s known in Italian, is best paired with Trippa alla Fiorentina, in other words, tripe Florentine style.

La Pieve di Pomaia

The best thing to order here is pizza; they have 20-30 different types of pizzas, enticing you to re-visit each night and switch up your pizza flavours.

La Carabaccia Trattoria, Florence

La Carabaccia Trattoria is a great small restaurant that offers only three plates and one appetizer daily. The menu is handwritten on a chalkboard outside. They specializes in seafood, and to that extent, serve exclusively the catch of the day.

La Taverna di San Giuseppe, Siena

It was a little more “fancy-pants” than the other restaurants I previously mentioned, but OH so good! My daughter ordered tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms; my nephew had Tagliatelle of beef; and my sister had pasta with truffle, which was in season.
