Il Desco Bistro

Il Desco is an intimate and welcoming bistro situated in the heart of the historical center of Florence, Via Cavour 27, a few steps from the Duomo  serving tasty and healthy food  made primarily with local organic ingredients
Fresh vegetables, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and other produce are sourced from the certified organic (ICEA) farm “Podere La Croce” in Reggello (30km far from Florence), owned by the same proprietor of the Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco and Il Desco, while meats and cheeses are selected by other local farmers.
The atmosphere is warm and casual and the food is freshly prepared with tasty and healthy suggestions for vegetarians, "carnivores" and  those intolerant to gluten. There are dishes of the traditional Tuscan cuisine often revisited with a more contemporary inspiration and you will find the introduction of ethnic food, such as seitan, harmonized with our Mediterranean taste.

Light Meals are served from 12 to 10pm with à la carte menu and specials of the day expertly explained from the the bistro staff. In the afternoon you can even enjoy snacks with cheeses, typical cold meats, salads, sandwiches and organic vegetable flan: all freshly prepared and of excellent quality! To warm body and soul you can choose from a varied selection of fine wines as Chianti Classico, Chianti Rufina, organic wines but also the great and genuine Crafter Beer Baladin.
Homemade cakes, teas, hot chocolate and other beverages are also available in the afternoon. Many products are offered for sale!
