Dating back to the late 1800s, La Spada comes from a long tradition of serving food and refreshments to locals and travellers. Staying true to its origins, Chefs Giuseppe and Claudio have created a menu of simple, authentic Tuscan dishes – specialties include charcoal-grilled, spit and roast meats as well as classic Tuscan appetizers and pasta dishes. Traditional Tuscan menus are quite meaty, but there are also plenty of options for those of you who are vegetarian or gluten-free.
Recently rennovated and expanded, La Spada has retained its Tuscan-rustic atmosphere so you can find a quiet corner for dinner with a friend or they can easily accommodate if you want to bring your whole class!!!
Take a look inside and you will quickly realize that this is not just a restaurant for tourists but is a favorite with the locals because of its high quality food (especially meat) at very reasonable prices. And for those of you who live in the area, there is also a deli section where you can order take-away portions of the restaurant’s food if you prefer to eat at home.

All of the staff are great at La Spada but secretly our super faves are Francesco and Ivan. It is always worthwhile asking them for their recommendation. They will tell you if there is something special on the menu or which cuts of meat are best. If you are not sure what to order, the lasagna is one of the best in Florence and of course La Spada is on our list of Top Spots to try the authentic Bistecca Fiorentina.
