Neighborhood: Santo Spirito (Oltrarno)
Cuisine: Italian

The significance of this Florence institution can be seen immediately upon arrival as the front door is plastered with sticker after sticker of awards from the past years. Expect to pay a bit for the chef's fantastic creations, but they are well worth the extra euro. Not only does the restaurant deliver some of the freshest seasonal pastas and side dishes around, but it is also well known throughout the city for their Bistecca Fiorentina (Tuscan porterhouse), which is cooked just enough to brown the edges. Don't assume that awards equal pretentious staff - this family-owned establishment is full of friendly, accommodating and chatty waiters. Il Guscio is great for either a special occasion or simply a glimpse into local Italian cuisine. -Annie Bettis
