Florence Restaurants

Simon Boccanegra

Fodor's Review

Florentine epicures flock to this place named for a condottiere (mercenary) hero in a Verdi opera. Under high ceilings, candles on every table cast a rosy glow; the fine wine list and superb service make a meal here a true pleasure. The chef has a deft hand with fish dishes, as well as an inventiveness when it comes to reinterpreting such classics as risotto with chicken liver—he adds leek and saffron to give it a lift. A less expensive, less formal wine bar serving

a basic Tuscan menu is also on the premises.

Simon Boccanegra Review

Avoid this place - the service was terrible, part of our meal never arrived, some of the meat was spoiled, and our experience was very disappointing.
