This stylish trattoria on a street alongside the art-filled Santa Croce is the first Florentine project of dynamic expatriate Scottish hotelier and restaurateur David Gardner. Baldovino has been going for years (since 1995, to be precise), but a winter 2010–11 makeover freshened up its chic bistro-style decor and creative Tuscan menu without changing the focus on value that makes it a perennial favorite for locals and visitors. Pizza from a wood-fired oven is a strong point—try the pesto variety—but Baldovino covers most bases, from substantial salads to pasta dishes to luscious bistecca alla Fiorentina. The wine list is excellent and the mark-ups reasonable. Next door, at number 20r, Baldobar serves coffee, pastries, wine, and Tuscan snacks all day, while at number 18r there's another Gardner enterprise, wine bar Enoteca La Botte.—Lee Marshall

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 7 to 11 pm.
