Please find below the reviews of our visits to the restaurant:
Saturday, April 14, 2012 we came back after many years to Ristorante Da Oliviero Via delle Terme 51 / ra Florence in the Via Tornabuoni. It is a historic restaurant in Florence, meeting at the time of the "sweet life" of the likes of Marcello Mastroianni caliber, Federico Fellini, Sophia Loren, Maria Callas, Burt Lancaster, Segovia, Tyrone Power, Ella Fitzgerald, Liza Minnelli, etc. The restaurant is elegant and classic, and at the same time very cozy. The extremely friendly and prompt service. The kitchen offers two menus: the Tuscan menu and the creative one and both offer both meat dishes of pesce.Appena arrived they offered us a prosecco and immediately brought water and a great bread basket with different kinds of very tasty crushed. Then we were offered a snack, a pea soup with goat cheese (we hope to remember well ... still very good). For wine we opted for Pepe Nero, a red Tuscan Vermentino that accompanied dinner excellently. Tonight we felt in the vein of creative cuisine, so we ordered as appetizers:
- Crispy Egg of Paolo Parisi with mashed asparagus and parmesan wafer
- Bloc de foie gras with quince jelly and brioche to Sauternes
As a first:
- Risotto "Carnaroli" Watercolor, leeks, mortadella of Prato and reduction of red beer
- Pork fillet, pine nuts and raisins with salsify and pioppini
- And then a fillet of beef with mozzarella, spinach and ... (sorry we do not remember the exact name of this dish, but still very good)
To finish a delicious cake which in this case, by failing to take note, we do not remember the exact name. Coffee and liqueurs offered by casa.Tutta dinner was excellent.
Price for two people 152 euros.
The price seems to be appropriate for the environment, quality of food and service. From Oliviero ranks among the top positions in our own ranking of preference, just after the restaurant Borgo San Jacopo . In the Ristorante Da Oliviero board you found the pictures taken during the evening.
