Florence..Thumbs up to Il Ritrovo

Kathy | Sep 23, 2003 11:29 AM

I have just returned from a trip to Italy which included a couple of days in Florence. Headed straight for Il Ritrovo based on recommendations on this board. Everything was as promised - a bit tricky to find -we asked for directions when we were on top of it. Definitely odd -no sign, you'd never find it unless you knew it was there. The staff was very friendly the food was very good, not in a fancy and ultra creative way but in a typical homestyle italian way - just what we were looking for. Good value. Very nice atmosphere. Lovely people.Really nice first evening in Italy. And,as promised on this board - practically empty. One other table filled (a Thursday night)Interestingly enough,the owner wanted to know how we found out about the restaurant. I mentioned Burke and Wells - he mentioned Chowhounds.I restrained myself from shouting back GET A SIGN!
As they say here in New York...go figure.
