Cestello Ristoclub

Choose your own fish from the display, which changes according to the season and the day’s catch – even on Sundays – and decide how you’d like it cooked. Or let yourself be guided through a tasting menu of 3, 5 or 7 dishes, each one meticulously arranged into a work of art. Through chefs Rastrelli and Di Sacco’s direct contacts, each fish is traceable to its origins in the Mediterranean. Meat-eaters can also enjoy options like foie gras and Florentine steak.

Bistro del Mare

Florence’s best-kept dining secret is hiding right in the city’s heart, just steps from Ponte Vecchio. Don’t let the prices fool you. Any of the adventurous dishes on chef Migliore’s pared-down menu could compete with counterparts in much fancier Florentine restaurants. The online pre-order and reservation option is fabulous for the time-pressed or smartphone-happy.

Pescheria San Pietro

Located beside the main train station, this chic new restaurant with its vintage-inspired décor is a godsend for travellers wishing to eat well and close by after a daytrip out of Florence. Named after the angler apostle and the Italian name for the John Dory fish, which chef Raddi uses for his tempura fish and chips, it doubles as a cocktail bar and makes fresh pasta daily.
