While living in Florence for four months I ate at lots of different but there were a bunch I visited more then once. La Giostra was one of them. We were instructed many times about the pear ravoli whichwere great, but we ended up having many different favorites there.
I lived less then a minute walk from this restaurant which was great. What wasn’t so great about it was I didn’t burn any calories on the walk there or back & i really needed too since I was defintely eatting a lot of calories while there.
Upon arriving you see the owner with tons of bracelets going up his arm (probably almost half way) the myth behind it is one bracelet for every girl hes slept with but we found out this was untrue. After sitting they give you complementary antipasti & some prosecco. Then the meal begins.
Below are some pictures of the things I have had there.
