The History


Lorenzo de’ Medici - Typical Tuscan Restaurant

Lorenzo de’ Medici Restaurant and Pizzeria offers a warm and welcoming environment, with a suggestive atmosphere. With its warm lighting, stone floors and rustic furniture, it transmits the magic of days gone by. A trip of the senses  will help you feel embraced by an antique Florence.

Among the most characteristic of its rooms, the “Piazzetta” is a little corner of rustic Tuscany which will win you over at first glance. Each detail has been specifically studied to evoke a small village. In the warmer seasons the space has an outdoor covered wooden seating area.

Our history


The Lorenzo de’ Medici Restaurant has offered traditional Tuscan cuisine since 1950. Located in the heart of Florence, the business grew over the next 10 years, reaching its current high quality of service.


Following the Flood of Florence in 1966, major renovations were made, conserving the characteristic rustic appearance. The kitchen offers dishes made with the freshest local ingredients, which are sourced from the surrounding Florentine province, the nearby San Lorenzo Market and from small local producers. Only genuine products are used, remain faithful to the high quality Made in Italy style.


The restaurant added some renowned Italian dishes to its Tuscan offerings. The culinary journey evolved with the creation of a completely gluten free menu for celiacs and gluten intolerant customers.

Recognised by the Portal of Reference for information on Celiac Disease, our attention to our guests never ends.

Member of the Italian Association for Celiacs, our gluten free restaurant focuses its attention on easily digestible products.
