Eating and Drinking in Florence Italy

Bistecca alla fiorentina, the most famous steak of the world

June 1, 2010

Tuscany and Florence in particular are surely famous for their cooking and Bistecca alla Fiorentina, Florentine-Style Steak , is featured prominently amongst the most famous dishes.

We’re talking of this delightfully rich and flavorful tranche of steak, taken from a specific Tuscan breed of cattle, the white chianina beef. It is supposed to be the most famous of the steak world – maybe with Japanese kobe.

You can taste a Bistecca alla Fiorentina, Italian national proud, in Santa Elisabetta Restaurant at Brunelleschi Hotel in Florence, where the Chef Simone Bertaccini cooks traditional Tuscan food, using seasonal products and doesn’t let you make the mistake of thinking that this steak is the be-all and end-all of Tuscan cuisine however.

And if you stay a minimum of 3 nights in our renovated rooms you will get a Bonus of 100 € to spend in our Hotel for Food and Beverage services, during the month of April and June 2010.

Your Bistecca alla fiorentina is yet on the grill…
