Baldovino's: "Best Bang for your Buck in Firenze" Florence Restaurant Tip by Fritzanity

Florence Restaurants: 635 reviews and 655 photos

For the typical approx. 20 year old traveler, this is the best affordable meal Florence offers, agreed by locals and study abroad kids alike. I had cheese raviolo sauteed in a pear butter sauce here and it was literally top 3 foods I have ever tasted in my life. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu, and the atmosphere is fun and the location ideal for going out afterwards (just to the left side of Santa Croce church).

Favorite Dish: Cheese Ravioli Sauteed in a Pear Butter Sauce- does this need further explanation? It's the creative combination of fantastic fruitful flavors with the freshness that food in Florence assures at the legit local hot spots.

Address: Via San Giuseppe 22r (St. on left of Sta. Croce)
