    The food is very good. The barrata with grapefruit and jelly is unbelievable. The best I've ever had. The rigatoni with tomato sauce is excellent. The truffle pasta good. Balsamic steak is ok.

    Very good service, with appetizers, prosecco, and limoncello on the house. The rice gelato with strawberries was incredible, definitely for two people. Small cover charge (€3/ person), but worth it!

    Back in 1700 La Giostra was the winter storage place for a carousel located in the Piazza dei Ciompi. Now is a typical Tuscan trattoria with a cosy atmosphere. A favourite with Florentines! Read more

    Tried pear ravioli & was great; maybe it could have used more pear flavor. Pigeon dish was very good with a sweet sauce. Wifi available, complimentary glass of prosecco & plate of Italian goodies.

    This is a beautiful and charming restaurant with amazing food. If you want excellent Florentine steak, this is the place to try it. The pasta with truffles was amazing. So was the cheesecake. Perfect!

    Delicious meal. Pretty interior. Osso bucco and pear ravioli (didn't taste pear but still great). Friendly, quick service. Although filled with tourists, would still recommend.

    We had to wait in the live line outside the restaurant for almost 2 hours, even if we made a reservation before we waited in the line. Everything else when we got in was fantastic, the atmosphere.

    The tip: meet the owner. You'll know him when you see him. He is an artist, he is extraordinary, he is 1-of-1. The service is i. Fish was fresh. Antipasto was terrific, pear ravioli molto bene.

    Best place I've been in Florence. Best service ever. Great food (I'd go again for the Bisteca Fiorentina). Tiramisu was amazing. Can't emphasize enough: great service!

    Good piattis (small amounts), but expensive. Bistecca alla fiorentina prepared at least with 1,5kg (80€). Waitress are very kind and CUTE! 170€ for 3

    Best of the best!! Go for Burrata cheese, ravioli stuffed with cheese and pear and definitely the signature dish in florence fiorentina steak.

    If you are hungry for American accents this is your spot. That said the tortellini w/white truffle was v. tasty & the complimentary prosecco a lovely touch - avoid the limencello, unless u like Pledge

    Save this for your fancy dinner out. We had Thanksgiving dinner and it was spectacular. Kicked off with prosecco, a bowl of burrata & little pots of honey & fig. And it only got better from there.

    It started out very good with our apertivos, bread and dinner. However, after the place got full all went downhill! We asked for dessert, waited 55 minutes and never arrived. Quite a dissappointment.

    I wish I had more petals to give to Soldanno. Run by the coolest guy in Florence, La Giostra serves up incredible Tuscan food like pecorino and pear ravioli and steak. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Steak fiorentina is buttery and perfect, and the pasta to choose is the simple spaghetti pomodoro

    It's supposed to be wine by the bottle only, but they will open a bottle for you and let you drink by the glass.

    Service is very good. The food is good, but way overpriced for what it is. You can find equally tasty food for 3/4 and even 1/2 the price in other restaurants.
