Almost two years ago Florence Delice was created with the idea to help people discover the delicacies Florence can offer both to the taste and to the sight. A useful tool for visitors from out of town and for those who are looking for a restaurant in Florence that offers a specific type of menu, for a good wine cellar, for a less renown museum still worth a visit, as well as for those who wish to know which shows are on for the night.
The wide selection of places where could eat or have a drink bears the signature of a famous representative of the Italian food and wine tradition, Leonardo Romanelli.
Leonardo, a sommelier and a famous food and wine expert, is very popular also for his extensive activity as a journalist, blogger and tv host and had already mentioned the trattoria Il Pennello in the past.
Already in 2009 he wrote an article about our restaurant in his blog.
In that particular occasion, he gave a wonderful description of Il Pennello: The vintage restaurant. We still thank him for this wonderful present he made us.
Vintage we are indeed in the comfortable rooms at the hearth of Florence, in the food that maintains the traditional taste of times gone by, but above all in the typical homey and Florentine atmosphere that fills the air – with Gino and Giovanni welcoming customers with the friendly touch known only to those who have been innkeepers their all life.
However, being “vintage” doesn’t necessarily mean that we renounce to the positive aspects of modernity, and our presence on Florence Delice is there to prove it. All the frequent updates of the app always confirmed our position amongst the restaurants in Florence worth a visit.
This result is flattering but not surprising: indeed, in 2014 we were awarded the Certificate of Excellence Traveller’s Choice by Tripadvisor once again!
If you are interested, you can download the app Florence Delice – Leonardo’s Florence for iPhone and iPad free of charge from Apple Store. However, the app is not required if you wish to make a reservaiton at Il Pennello: a phone call or a mail through this website is just as good.
