Osteria de'Benci Review

A few minutes from Santa Croce, this charming osteria serves some of the most eclectic food in Florence. Try the spaghetti degli eretici (in tomato sauce with fresh herbs). The grilled meats are justifiably famous; the carbonata is a succulent piece of grilled beef served rare. Weekly specials complement what's happening in the market, and all of the food pairs beautifully with their wine list, which is heavy on things Tuscan. When it's warm, you can dine outside with a view of the 13th-century tower belonging to the prestigious Alberti family.

    Good food in a funky atmosphere

    Excellent tuscan food that is not overpriced. This place has a very college feel to it with loud music and hippy type servers.

    Less (money) is more (taste)

    Delicious and inexpensive, what more is there to say? Young staff was blasting 1980s American music, which detracted from the atmosphere, but I forgot all about it when the food came out. Great Tuscan cooking.
