Tips from the Net @ Il Portale - Trattoria e Pizzeria

Family was staying at hotel next to the station, got a "discount offer" from another place that I'd tried once before; it was ok but nothing special and hard to get into. I knew of Il Portale because I'd gotten a quite good pizza for takeout from them two weeks before when I had also been in a hotel near the station. We all went to Il Portale for a longer, nicer dine-in meal and got a variety of things on the menu. Service was admittedly a little slow at first despite our being one of only about six tables at the time. Hey- it's Firenze. Look around a bit, relax, appreciate the menu which is pretty varied and has English subtitles. :-) Once our server did come- and he was a funny, warm gentleman who made us feel welcome- things picked up. Soups and salads were very good, wine was great, table service was appreciably more attentive even as the place started to get a fair bit busier. My family members got several different main dishes that they liked. I had the Bistecca alla Fiorentina, which was very nicely and correctly cooked, and flavorful. Prices were reasonable for everything we got; there are certainly many places in this city that will charge you more and give you less for your money. Il Portale was not the most incredible cordon bleu once-in-lifetime gastronomic experience I have ever had- but I didn't demand nor expect it to be. It was good food at decent prices with fair (could have been a little faster at first) and pleasant service. Wide menu w/English! It was memorable enough for me to write this review, and memorable enough for a return visit on my next trip to Firenze if I am staying near the station again. GooglePlace - July 2017

2 stars because the service was good. Food was pretty poor. I ordered Mr hamburger (because I didn't just want half kilo of beef on its own to myself, I wanted a few other things). The meat was burnt and so was the bread. The chips were average. The nicest part was the slices of fresh tomato. It's a shame because the waiting staff were very friendly. There are many places in florance that specialise in massive slabs of beef and I would recommend finding somewhere else. GooglePlace - April 2017

Very good ricota and spinach ravioli and 4 cheese gnocchi. Our group of nine people didnt lime our first table, so we asked for the manager to move us! There wasnt anyone at the restaurant (we got there a bit early for dinner) but he said we would have to wait 20min (tho he could have moved us easily). He would also look angry at us because we were talking a little louder than he'd like (but nothing that disturbed other tables). Other than that, the plates were really good!!!
