This tiny, traditional joint has been in business since the 1950s. It’s become our go-to for bistecca alla fiorentina, in both classic and marbled styles. Whichever you choose, your meat spends a short time on the grill and is best served simply with roasted potatoes and fagioli al fiasco (beans stewed in olive oil). There’s also a full Tuscan menu of fresh pasta, crostini, soups and the like. Service is attentive and knowledgeable, especially when it comes to selecting a wine to wash down the red meat (Chianti Rufina Nipozzano is our choice). The location is one of Florence’s most heavily touristed areas, but with over six decades behind it, Il Nutino is doing things the right way.
