Housed in the 16th century cellars near the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, Buca Mario is a 130 year old restaurant in the heart of Florence, famous with the locals for serving up the city’s best Bistecca alla Fiorentina in a setting that is hidden from the tourist crowds.
Florence is beautiful. Every guidebook, website, and television show says the same thing and, yes, Florence is stunning. Architecture, art and culture and food! After a day of sight seeing, I walked out of Palazzo Pitti and into the first place I saw, Ristorante Caffe Pitti.
