Italy – Trattoria Beppino, Florence

With family in Firenze fortunately I have eaten at Trattoria Beppino a number of times.  The down side for this review is I am unable to tell you what the menu is like or what sort of price you would pay to eat here, as I have never seen a menu and never pay the bill!!:-)

Suffice it to say that if you wish to eat good tuscan food off the well-trodden tourist track then head for Trattoria Beppino in a residential area of Firenze to dine with the locals and get a taste of good, fiorentine food.  They tend to have a number of fresh pastas available for you to choose with a variety of sauces so you can mix and match your pasta as you like – I had gnocchi and tomato sauce having just arrived in Italy wanting a taste of “home”, my Nonna no longer alive to make me fresh gnocchi.  Salads are large and well created, the faro is heart-warming and the ambience is local. On a previous visit the Kiwi had steak fiorentina – a must for any red-blooded male who doesn’t mind blue meat!  It is a real taste of local produce, cooked and prepared as the locals like it – a real tuscan feast – Enjoy!

    Hi there!

    I had the pleasure of dining at Beppino twice while I was staying in Firenze. I enjoyed wonderful hospitality (it is, of course, family owned) and lovely, fresh food. My meal of an inslalata caprese (fresh buffalo mozzereella, tomatoes, olive oil and basil) a “mezza ” (half portion) of gnocchi (which is unbelieveably light and feathery) and a baked chicken breast that fell off the bone and melted in my mouth was 22 euros. I did have a nice glass of house red, and, as a treat, the owner’s wife presented me with a taste of her homemade chocolate liquer (as she does everyone.)
    I love it! It is located in the altr’arno neighborhood (where I recommend lodging — it’s quiet and peaceful) which is accessible via a short “d” bus ride from the ponte vecchio.

    Sorry, my typos are horrific.
