clients are always looking for good eating and what we usually suggest is to try the Florentine steak.
The word Bistecca is derived from the English “beef steak” and the Bistecca alla Florentina is a porterhouse cut believed to have been introduced to the region by wealthy English residents in the 1800s. The Bistecca alla Florentina is made from the meat of the Vacca Chianina , a large white breed of cattle that takes its name from the Chiana valley and was originally raised in this region for agricultural work and also to pull carts.The people of Florence consider the Bistecca alla Florentina one of the highest expressions of Tuscan gastronomical achievement. If you eat a Bistecca with a good glass ( or bottle, better...) of red wine, a Chianti one, you'll taste the real Florentine way of life.
At Hotel Mario's you' ll get all the information about where to find good restaurants where is possible to eat the steak. When you are in Florence, impossible miss it!
