Opening Hours
Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat 12:00 - 22:15

già nei primi dell'800 i fiaccherai si fermavano a questo indirizzo per avere un bicchiere di vino e un piatto di zuppa calda,il nome è dovuto dal fatto che negli anni '50 il posto fosse in mano a un certo Corrado, persona dall'igiene molto dubbia, noto a tutti come 'coco lezzone ', Nei primi anni '70 venne acquistato da Gianfranco Paoli, fedele avventore, e dai suoi fratelli. Bene, da quel momento in poi il ristorante non è più cambiato: panche di legno, tavoli in comune, tovaglie a quadretti e cucina toscana. La particolarità di questo locale consiste nel pranza gomito a gomito insieme ai fiorentini nei tavoli in comune. La cucina produce piatti autentici toscani fra i quali spiccano la ribollita, la pappa al pomodoro e l'immancabile bistecca alla fiorentina. Buona selezione di vini toscani.

Tips from the Net @ Coco Lezzone

We wasted a dinner in Florence eating here. This may have been a good restaurant many years ago. Feels like they are just milking it now with high prices charged for what I got. Don't eat the bread even though they automatically charge 2 Euros per person...I saw the waiter pick off left over bread from turned over tables. Waiter is also pushy about tips...

Very disappointing. Would not go back; would not recommend Coco Tezzone to others. Has there been a change in the kitchen? The thin red house wine was served in plastic cups; the chicken liver crostini was chunky but tasty; the ossobuco was tough and dry (sent it back); the white truffles were tasty (and costly) but the pasta on which they were served was dry (pre-cooked?); the veal scallopini was tender but a bit overwhelmed by the tomato sauce. Some attractive Items on the menu were not available. GooglePlace - September 2017

Very nice local hangout. Not touristy at all. Interesting menu. Good traditional food. GooglePlace - July 2017

DON'T GO HERE!! The prices are double what they are everywhere else, the food is boring. We ordered veal with tomato sauce that only tasted like tomatos, the pork was grilled for 6 hours which was about 6 hours too long and it was extremely dry. A plate of 6 asparagus cost 12 euro and even though there was a coperto (cover charge) of €2 per person the server, who always looked irritated, bugged us about how service is not included. Total joke, i dont wish this meal on anyone. GooglePlace - June 2017

Loved the food. Great beef and tasty vegetables. One thing on the minus side - I couldn't try all the dishes. GooglePlace - June 2017
