Food, service and wine incredible as to be expected. The cacio e pepe was noteworthy!
We dined in the indoor part of the restaurant and we are both vegetarian.
The service was faultless but the food was very plain for us, nothing stood out or felt special. We have enjoyed the rest of our dinners in Florence so much more so personally I wouldn’t recommend this place for the food.
Perhaps in the summer when you can sit out in the terrace it may be slightly better because of the ambience but I’d still recommend a drink rather than a meal

excelent, very delicious food , atmosphere everything
Excellent food. Deep wine list. Gorgeous surroundings. Expensive, but not unjustifiably so. Special.
Because of our fantastic experience in Paris at the restaurant in George V.
We decided to go to the 4 Season restaurant in Florence.
Staff was Fabulous, food was deplorable.
Would not give 1 star, if we didn't have to.
There are so many Great restaurants in Florence, go to one of them.
Dear RobertB, Thank you for leaving a review after your experience with us. We are glad to read that you found the staff fabulous, but we regret to read that you did not enjoy our food selection, made with the highest quality ingredients and traditional recipes with a twists. I am at your disposal if you would like to contact me personally in order to discuss about our food philosophy and what went wrong. Best regards Vito Mollica Executive Chef and Director of F&B
Gracious service - attentive but not intrusive, outstanding gourmet food, superb wine choices guided by a helpful sommelier and tasty surprises between courses. One could not imagine a more satisfying dining experience.
Visited for our anniversary dinner. The service was impeccable, and the tasting menu was very good. I loved the little details in between, like the excellent single-origin olive oil, the homemade caramelised onion bread, and the fresh mint tea which they cut from a live mint tree in front of you.
Dear Andhika, Greetings from Florence. Thank you for choosing us for such an important occasion as your anniversary dinner.

beautiful settings at Palagio restaurant, food was correct (tasting menu) but the service was very slow.
Very nice food. Great service. Was recommended. It lived to expectations
Friends had suggested we try IL Palagio for several months. We did and found it to be very worthy of its Michelin rating. A beautiful venue, in the Four Seasons Hotel, a restored Medici villa which has been maintained in a first rate fashion. Food was outstanding, wine list was huge, the chef was on site, and all the staff was very knowledgeable of the menu, wine list and the options. It is expensive, as one would expect with this level of service...Wine selections were carefully chosen with the help of a very helpful
sommelier and the cost was modest, by our own standards.
It is an experience, one should not miss while in Florence.
The food and service was excellent and it was a great experience for my young daughters.
The food was good but not great. For a Michelin star restaurant we expected to be wowed and we were not. It is clearly not worth the price point and we would have done far better by going to a local place with less pretension and better food.
This Michelin Star restaurant lives up to its billing as a phenomenal dining experience with classic Tuscan dishes alongside inventive insertions of international fare.
Great ambiance in a wonderful cadre. It's a beautiful culinary experience.
The highest recommendation based the impeccable service, stunning surroundings and sublime food - couldn’t fault!
Lovely venue and spectacular food! Great service made for a lovely date night
Good meal meeting a high standard. Service did partially meet expectations. Wine pairing is expensive. Overall we found Il Palagio just average and not meeting very high expectations compared to the many 1 Michelin restaurants we visited around the world. 5 course Tasting menu EUR 140 plus EUR 95 for wine pairing.
One of the best restaurants we’ve ever been to. The setting, service and food we’re most fitting for this 14th century palace in romantic Florence.
The friendly staff met us at the hotel entrance and escorted us through the plush sitting rooms and bar to a lovely outdoor dinning area surrounded by private gardens and walking paths.
A fabulous and unforgettable night for our 50th anniversary.
We’re blown away with the full experience. The Chef Vitto is a genius and the staff is incredibly sharp and friendly! It’s such a beautiful ambience with the live music and incredible garden view.
What a wonderful evening with excellent food and even better ambience and service! I had some trepidation in planning a visit to a hotel based restaurant in a city know for its cuisine but I wanted an entire package (food, service and setting) to celebrate our daugter's birthday. I was not disappointed! The restaurant had moved to the garden for the evening. Live music with dancing under the stars set a very celebratory mood. We selected the tasting menu with wine pairing. Each dish was well prepared with the lobster and gazpacho and tuna and pickled vegetables personal favorites. The wine pairing though scantily poured was less expensive than most and the Slovenian wine really went well with its paired course. The wait staff was very attentive and particularly noted the nature of the special occasion, serving our daughter a glass of sparkling and bringing an extra dessert for the table accompanied by the pianist playing Happy Birthday. A great time capped off by some celebratory sighting as we left the hotel. Thank you to all involved in helping us make great memories!
We chose the prix fixe menu with wine pairings. It was outstanding! Unique and creative. Truly a special experience.
Fantastic dinner with incredibly atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed the piano entertainment. The staff were knowledgable (especially the sommelier) and the food was delicious!
Are you lookong For special Occasion ? Perfect for anniversary , company event , top Occasion.
All you need at top quality
The service was very attentive in a discreet way. The food was outstanding and refined using local produce. The staff were knowledgeable about the food and drink on offer. Beautiful surroundings and a wonderful singer creating a lovely ambience. We would definitely recommend a visit.
Outstanding tasting menus. Divine setup in favorable weather. Perfect wine recommendation. Up to the expectations level.
Romantic, impeccable service, delicious food, felt far from the hustle and bustle of Rome. A wonderful way to celebrate our 38th anniversary!
