We are located in Borgo San Lorenzo, in the heart of the historic center of Florence. History and tradition guide us every day in offering you a gastronomic proposal synonymous with quality in the Florentine culinary panorama. The ancient inn dates back to 1580. Even today, a plaque placed above the entrance of the restaurant recalls its ancient splendor, when during the Renaissance it began to serve its first dishes and to welcome travelers passing through Florence. This is why the Osteria of Borgo San Lorenzo is considered the oldest restaurant in the world. We are located 100 meters from Piazza San Giovanni with its splendid marvels. Here history and tradition come together in a gourmet oasis made up of Tuscan flavors and aromas.
Our menu, created with respect for the Tuscan tradition, is based on the freshness and genuineness of ingredients: from polenta crostini to tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, to typical Tuscan soups or penne with sausage and truffle, to the classic Florentine steak or the sliced beef tagliata with rocket and Grana cheese.
"Ponder well on this point: the pleasant hours of our life are all connected
by a more or less tangible link, with some memory of the table"
Charles Pierre Monselet
The undisputed protagonist of our pizzas is the slow-rising dough. The use of simple yet excellent raw materials such as Italian tomato sauce and fiordilatte or buffalo mozzarella make pizza the queen of your evenings at the Osteria dell'Agnolo.
In the heart of the historic center of Florence, a few steps from the Basilica of San Lorenzo and Piazza San Giovanni, the Osteria dell'Agnolo is a corner of Florence that has remained unchanged since 1580. A tasty stop for enjoying real Tuscan cooking with your friends or family.Location
