Recommendations for a group dinner in Florence next week

Hi all,

We're attending a wedding outside of Florence and are getting a group of around ten people together for dinner the night before the wedding - just a casual meet and greet for people who aren't involved in the wedding but in town from NYC. We would love something a little upscale but nothing too formal - a fun atmosphere. If possible, looking for a place that starts serving on the earlier side, as one couple will have an 11 month old along. Any recommendations?

Thanks much!

    Cantinetta Antinori is another for the best wines in Italy.

    1. We love Taverna del Bronzino. I've seen families with babies every time we've been there. The service is upscale but the atmosphere is casual. They have a wonderful bistecca ala Fiorentina.

        1. Try Coquinarius...friendly, upscale and casual, creative pastas and they serve dinner earlier than most places.
