Accademia Ristorante information
There aren’t too many decent eateries in this area, which is one of the reasons why this family-run restaurant is perennially packed. Factors such as friendly staff, cheerful decor and consistently good food help, too. The set menu of antipasto toscana, a raviolo with porcini mushrooms or truffles, spaghetti in a spicy sauce, and bistecca alla fiorentina with oven-roasted potatoes (€30) is excellent value.
