Pescheria Di San Pietro: fresh fish and pasta

Everyone’s going to Pescheria San Pietro…

but not to buy a trout like its name — meaning fish shop in Italian — might suggest, but to have a nice meal of fresh pasta and great seafood.

This new seafood restaurant opened about six months ago in Via Alamanni. Here fresh pasta is king on the menu. And, indeed, the monkfish ravioli and asparagus were exceptional.

Before you come inside you can see where the fresh pasta is made, just in case you had any lingering doubt about the homemade genuineness of their food.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting with a variety of styles in their small dining areas, whose decorations are sea and fishing inspired.

As soon as we arrived, the manager welcomed us and showed us to our table. She told us a bit about the restaurant and the seafood cooking classes they organize.

The staff was superb, especially with the three-year-old son of one of our friends who was pampered by everyone.

The menu is full of options, with everything from a simple cone of fried seafood to a sophisticated tuna steak. We tried a bit of everything and it all lived up to our highest expectations.

They have a take-away service so you can enjoy their specialties at home too.

Another great thing about it is its long hours, from 11:00 am to midnight, to fit everyone’s schedules. The prices are reasonable, I’d say on average less than other seafood restaurants in Florence.

In short, nothing should stop you from checking it out: it’s easy to reach (next to the tram’s Alamanni station); the prices are good; it’s always open; everything is nice; and, first and foremost, the food is fabulous!
