Concierge.com's insider take:
Opened in June 2009, this beef-oriented restaurant on the riverside Lungarno road, just upstream from the Ponte Vecchio, makes for a great alfresco summer dining experience. Despite its proximity to the main tourist routes, Lungarno 23 (the address, natch) is as much frequented by locals as visitors—perhaps because it's set back from the street in one of Florence's Liberty-style patrician villas. One of the owners also has a Chianina cattle farm in southern Tuscany, and the beef he raises goes into hamburgers (each named after one of the farm's prize bulls), steak tartare, roast beef, and carpaccio. Inside the spacious main dining room with back wall bar, a chic trattoria ethos reigns; but Lungarno's real trump card is its outside terraced seating area overlooking the riverside promenade (though not quite the Arno itself, which is hidden by a low wall).—Lee Marshall
Open Mondays through Saturdays 12:30 to 3 and 7:30 to 11 pm.
