Florentine steak on a Sunday in Florence Italy?

Hello. I am wondering if anyone could recommend a great restaurant that is open for Sunday dinner that might serve bistecca? Any other recommendations would be most welcome. Thank you!

  1. Have you checked to see if Sostanza is open on Sundays? It has been discussed and recommended on this chat board countless times.

    I would encourage you to go to the upper right-hand corner of this page and do searches for both Sostanza and bistecca to find past threads that will be of interest to you.

        Unfortunately it is closed. It's tough to find a good restaurant open on a sunday

          Cipolla Rossa is open on Sundays, and has good bistecca.

          Tre Soldi is also open and is excellent. I'm not sure it has bistecca, but their tagliata - covered with lardo and herbs, is out of this world.

        2. Sorry, Sostanza is not open on Sundays, nor is Trattoria i due G, and of course Trattoria Mario is also closed. I'll check around a bit more and get back to you if I come up with other ideas.

              A remarkable restaurant, with a decent Florentine steak.
              There is a fireplace and a tree growing up in the middle of the floor. Just there last Sunday evening.

                Cipolla Rossa looks to be open on Sundays. I haven't tried their bistecca but had a very nice lunch there in April, plus the location is very convenient (Via dei Conti 53).
