Revisiting Florence 50 Years Later

As a student in the 60's, I was too poor to eat out at anything but the university mensa or a tavola calda. Now I'm returning in April for 3 days, but many of the places I wanted to go then....no longer exist. My 2001 edition of Slow Food Osterie d'Italia suggests the following but I would appreciate comments from any hounds who have up to date experience.
Ristorante Al Tranvai
Piazza T.Tasso, 14r
Borgo San Frediano 145
via della Rosina 2
via Senese 89r
Volta San Piero 6r
via de’ Macci 114
All of the places you mention above are great, and I would recommend all of them EXCEPT for Cibreo. I'm just not a fan at all.
FYI, all of the places you are listing are great, but definitely at the 'simple' end of things. For simple, I'd add to the list Fagioli, Casalinga and Sostanza.
But there are a lot of slightly higher end places you might want to explore, since maybe you can afford it now? Have a look through the boards.
