If only every Tuscan restaurant in town was this good. Family-run Osteria di Giovanni is a standout in this category and therefore always buzzing: You should reserve even in low season. Meat is a specialty, both traditional (the bistecca alla fiorentina is legendary) and modern interpretations like faraona all’arancia (guinea hen stewed in slightly sweet orange). Only the very brave should attempt a primo/secondo/dolce route: Portions are large. A seemingly steep cover charge (4€) is actually a good deal, because it includes a couple of tasty snacks and all the mineral water you can drink.
