Pictures of this restaurant (1)Gelateria dei Neri, Florence -
Not one of the more famous names, and a bit off the tourist trail, but the best ice cream by a country mile. The cioccolata was just brilliant. Other flavours also amazing. - Tim

On the recommendation of our extremely helpful hotel reception, we gave this a try. It was well worth the short walk, even though our feet had covered a lot of ground in the day! The welcome was warm and the service attentive but not intrusive. We sat outside under the two giant umbrellas. No view of a church or ancient architecture, but pleasant enough. Pizza was well made and wholesome and so was the Insalata Beatrice. House wine (white) very drinkable and reasonable at 4.5 euros a half litre. In Florence this is exceptional value. - Tim

After years of thinking this establishment had closed, we saw a light when passing yesterday and thought we would change our plans and give it a go. Not the best decision. The carpark being empty should have told us something... We were the only people there. The setting is delightful if a little `tired`. The welcome was warm - possibly because customers are so rare! We had a pizza and piece of veal (ie one course). Not the best but by no means poor. But it was very expensive for what it was. Euros 7.5 for the pizza, 9 for two very small pieces of veal, 3 for a basic salad, etc. With half a litre of house white (in itself not bad at all), and two coffees - Euros 32.50. That is about 50% over market rates... Now we see why the car park is empty. - Tim

First impressions of the new management of what was Il Flamingo (they have moved down the road to what was Tre Castelli) were good. A few small changes to the outside dining area, for the better. A huge plate of tortelli al ragu was good, tortelli probably bought in rather than home made, but good nevertheless. Pizzas at 4.5 euros were OK, not the best. House white 6 euros a litre was quaffable, as they say. Staff did not seem to have much zip and zing, helpful enough, but not really any enthusiasm. Overall, as an outdoor summer pizzeria, worth a look and very reasonable. - Tim

Tried the new chef. Facilities and welcome just as before. Antipasto was huge and varied enough. Cheese crepe was inbcredibly cheesy and a bit doughy. Bisteccha di miaile turned out to be a mixed grill. Nothing exceptional. Maiaile con lardo was very nice in contrast, A well presented and sensible sized portion. House white was very pleasant enough but 10 euros is too much. - Tim

Placeholder only, because there are no pictures of this restaurant (0)Il Molin del Sassone, Fornaci di Barga -
There was a pleasant enough outdoor area, but the evening was not that warm, so we went in. The dining room was spacious and well appointed, paper cloths and napkins and chunky water glasses a bit out of keeping really. The welcome was warm, perhaps because we admitted that a friend of the waiter had recommended it. The food was good: antipasto varied and plentiful; ravioli delicate and correctly cooked. For mains, the bistecca di maiale was absolutely brilliant, soft aromatic and perfectly cooked; the pizza was nice and crispy; but not exceptional. House wine (white) at 8 euros was lovely but a bit pricey. - Tim
