This was simply the best meal I’ve ever had, hands down. Buffalo Mozzarella and Prosciutto, ravioli, fettuccine with porcini mushrooms and finally the beef stew in red wine sauce.
This is the Italian restaurant you dream of coming to. The menu is handwritten daily, the bread is sliced right on front of you and the whole experience is perfectly Italian. Our waiter even picked out a wine right off the shelf because it complimented our meal perfectly. This was seriously the best meal I’ve ever had. Make reservations though before you travel to Italy.

Great food ( pasta with duck ragù, beef stew, ravioli with mascarpone cheese sauce, raspberry tiramisu!)
But the best part is the lively atmosphere and service in this intimate setting with seating for 35 guests. It is always full with many turned away each night.
Vini e Vecchi is the real deal! This family owned and run restaurant is well known and loved by many.
Grazie mille to Mario,Tommaso, Fidan and Pasquale for two memorable evenings!

We came for lunch and we're so happy with our food we quickly made dinner reservations. Even simple dishes are mind blowing. I had fettuccine with asparagus that I will dream about forever. A must visit when in Florence. Reservations required!

This was recommended to us by a local and it was just absolutely amazing. The food was perfect, the service was helpful. It's small, so make a reservation. I will absolutely be going back!

My wife and I recently had lunch at Vini e Vecchi Sapori. We both had water, wine and two pasta dishes. While the pastas were excellent, we were really put off by the apparent cost of the wine.

The waiter who took our order spoke excellent English. We asked him for a 1/2 liter of white, house wine. Rather than explaining that they only serve wine by the bottle or by the glass, he brought to the table a 375 ml bottle of wine.

When the bill arrived, the charge for the small bottle of wine was € 14. It was only after we questioned this charge that the waiter showed us the printed wine list; and, yes, € 14 was the cost of the wine. After noticing that I had annotated the bill with what each item cost, the waiter took the bill back and deducted € 6 from the total. Frankly, it was the honorable thing to do and was much appreciated.

This is a very small restaurant (maybe 6 or 7 tables), and you should expect to be seated with others if you go. The prices are higher than many downtown Florence restaurants with comparable food; but, it is only steps away from the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery.
