Just back from a great dinner our Airbnb is literally just around the corner so we checked out the menu and reviews last night and ate dinner there tonight. We leave for the port of Rome in the morning to cruise back to the USA after being gone for 9 months. This is one of the three best meals we’ve had since we’ve been traveling and the best in Italy.

The four of us shared three starters:
The liver pate (tasty and I’m not much of a liver fan, the parpadelle-so very good, and the pici with tomatoes and GARLIC-wow!

The lady in our group had the pici with anchovies and breadcrumbs for her main while we three guys shared a 1.3 kilo Steak Florentine. It was delicious! We had a side of the fried potatoes with garlic and sage. That dish is extraordinary! Be sure to order it no matter what you have. We had two bottle of wine and our entire bill was only 150 euros.

While the food was great the atmosphere was even better. It was obvious the entire staff (Roberto in particular)enjoy their jobs and want everyone to have a great time.

Our evening ended with the entire restaurant singing Happy Birthday to our lady as well as coming up and wishing her a happy day. Before we left we added ourselves to their wall with a $2 bill and an order form me to order the potatoes! Roberto brought us grappa as we were leaving.

We will definitely plan on a return trip to Staggia to try some of the other amazing dishes we saw folks order.

Highly Recommend!

The atmosphere was wonderfully authentic and the food was delicious. We tried the Florentine steak and it was fabulous. Friends raved about the lamb chops. Roberto was charming and very gracious to let us in before the restaurant was even open, as we had walked into town from a nearby Villa.

Last night in Tuscany and yet to have Bistecca Florentino. I’ Nostrana had good reviews and we just came by about 8 on a , Monday night. This is a locals restaurant and doesn’t look like much from the street, but the food is excellent. The service is warm and friendly. Not much English, but the menu has some English words and we communicated just fine.

The Florentine steak, a 1kg porterhouse (that’s 2.2 pounds for my Texas bothers) with a rock salt crust, flash seared to medium rare - Fantastic!

Great meal, comfortable atmosphere, if this restaurant was in Houston I would eat here two or three times a month.

Quality doesn’t need a lot of words

We had a lovely dinner with friends in this restaurant. It opens at 19.30 so we had a little stroll through the town when we arrived early. The food was amazing quality and the quantities were overwhelming. We will come again next time.
