Florence Dining Advice

Kat | Apr 30, 2012 11:03 AM

Hi - we are two adults and a child (age 9) coming to Florence in July. I am aware that this is a very busy time and need advice about dinners. We have 2 days there. People here seem to recommend booking reservations for dinner, but with a kid and a cranky husband in tow, it is better for us to be able to just choose a restaurant when and where hunger strikes, rather than being bound to a reservation. But, I don't want to get stuck eating bad food out of desperation. I am thinking of the Oltrarno district, hopefully a bit away from the masses, since we'll be visiting the Pitti. Will we be able to walk into an enoteca or trattoria around 7:00 p.m and have dinner without a reservation? Or, do even less casual restaurants need reservations? We'll be skipping the more upscale places. Thank you.
