Alle Murate

16r Via del Proconsolo
Florence , Italy
39 055 240-618

For a unique Florentine experience, book a table on Alle Murate’s mezzanine beneath the earliest known frescoed portraits of writers Dante and Boccaccio. Housed in the 14th-century seat of the city’s magistrates’ and notaries’ guild, the restaurant also has a vaulted basement with Plexiglas floors suspended over a Roman archaeological site. Audiocassettes explaining the surroundings are available to listen to while you eat. Food here is good and authentically Tuscan, if a little overshadowed by its surroundings. In season, order platters like pigeon in white grape sauce or white bean soup with shrimp.
