Associazione La Pentola Delloro: "This is a must visit restaurant" Florence Restaurant Tip by SHARKFIN

Florence Restaurants: 635 reviews and 655 photos

This is a well known rest among florentines. It serves food the way they cook in medevial times. The owner is very passionate abt food and his research lead him to recipe thats was from those times. The dessert i had that night was a recipe from the medici family cook,my wife had pasta done the way they did for the jesuits of medievial times. Check out the tuscany web site under Alessi , you will know more and i agree to everything that is on the website having personally experience the food and the warmth of mr alessi> By the way there is no big sign announcing the existance of this restaurant , just the address and some articles and awards pasted on the door . My wife and i shared the appertizer , both had a first dish , main course and shared one dessert ,1/2 bottle of a very good house wine and the bill came to Eur 63. Mr Alessi even signed and gave a copy of a cook book he published to my wife .

Favorite Dish: The black pepper steak recommended by the owner .. supposedly recipe from great architect .. i think was the person who built the famous dome in florence . Also i had recooked bread with beans .. very delicious .. cook the way they did in the old days . i did not know it was bread , thought it was some kind of mash potatoes or something . It turn out to be bread reheat again and again .. like old days when they cook for the masses, reheat to serve again and again ... stress again delicious .. needs to go back again before this old man retires ...
