It goes without saying by know that Florentine steak is a “must try” when you go to eat out in Florence, up there with ribollita, pappa al pomodoro, and other classic delicious dishes part of our local cuisine.
This is exactly why it feels great when you have a chance to try an alternative restaurant, serving something different than the dishes you have seen a hundred times, where the atmosphere is casual but refined and the feel very laid back. If you are ready to try new out flavors, put yourselves in the hands of chef Beatrice Segoni.
The place for you is Konnubio, where you can experience an explosion of flavors, impeccable presentation, and an exceptional location.
Prosecco and amuse-bouche got us started. The fish and meat appetizers are as varied as they are exquisite. They offer sophisticated first courses, such as whipped codfish tortelliwith a sauce of purple potatoes and black powder.
The main courses also make quite an impression. The fried calamari, shrimp and prawns are magnificently presented with julienne vegetables and ginger mayonnaise! And so how about the desserts? Well, the pistachio crème brûlée with raspberry cream is sublime.
Vegans and vegetarians will also have plenty of options.
The staff is young and friendly, the restaurant is large, yet still cozy with sophisticated furnishings. Konnubio is open all day, from the mornings for breakfast through the evening, and is a perfect choice for a lovely evening of good conversation, good wine and a magical atmosphere!
