Trattoria Cammillo – Florence, Italy

Looking for a place for a nice dinner in Florence? Look no further and keep reading!

First though, make sure to enjoy the views of the sunset over Florence from the Piazzale Michelangelo. It is a must if you are ever visiting Florence! There you will have the best view of Florence Cathedral, also known as Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, and watch the colours changing over the city while the mountains start to appear in the background.

Had enough? Feeling hungry? Good!

Head down toward the city centre but stay on the south bank of the Arno river. Stroll along the Arno on Borgo S. Jacopo street. After a 15-minute walk, you should reach Trattoria Cammillo!

The traditional trattoria is something out of a movie! The outside facade is vintage and very welcoming after a long day walking around the city.

The interior is very traditional and the waiters seem to have worked there their entire life. All of them are very elegant, extremely knowledgeable and their service is delivered with a bit of Italian wit, which is oh so charming. You can tell they are very proud to work at Trattoria Cammillo!

Pick a glass of wine (or a bottle) from the extensive wine menu.

One tip, if like me you feel overwhelmed when choosing wine, in Tuscany you can never really go wrong by ordering a Chianti or a Montepulciano!

Now the food… Oh the food!!!

Once again, just like in an American romantic comedy where the main character goes to Italy to find the meaning of life and eat all the food. The plates are simple, the dishes are traditional, and everything is delicious.

We weren’t feeling very adventurous that night and went for classics, and Trattoria Cammillo didn’t disappoint. A Caprese salad to start (tomato and mozzarella).

Followed by the most delicious mushroom pasta, COVERED with fresh truffle and parmesan!

We ended the dinner happy and full, very, very full, as the before and after pictures below show!

We didn’t book a table and were very lucky as Trattoria Cammillo can get really busy! I would definitely recommend making a reservation if you can.

  3. I would love to visit Florence sometime! Only ever been to Rome in Italy, and I have yet to discover the other amazing places:) The food looks amazing, you can never go wrong with mushroom and truffle pasta! I’ve had a bit of an obsession with truffle-flavoured things lately, it’s becoming an expensive obsession…I’ll keep this in mind for if I ever visit! Thanks for sharing:)
