A gem. If I had only one issue, it may be considered silly - they had no limes for a gin & tonic. Yes, I know - but lemons do not belong...

Lo Scudo was an excellent mid-range option for dinner. Every person we interacted with at the restaurant was warm and professional, service was prompt and friendly, and the food was excellent! It was fresh, tasty, and plenty for sharing. Would return, and recommend you try it out!

Food was outstanding. The Restaurant had a really good vibe with a relaxed atmosphere which I found very surprising considering it was so close to the Duomo. Lo Scudo is in an ideal location and frequented by locals in the main rather than just "walk-in tourists". There were enough diners within the restaurant to create a good atmosphere. The numbers also providing reassurance that the food and experience would not disappoint.
I also need to specifically mention the very hospitable welcome that we received, nothing was too much trouble, with very useful and helpful advice and information provided about each item on the varied menu.
The restaurant is laid out very well, enough room at each table so that you do not feel crowded, with the restaurant decorated in a wonderful traditional italian olde world style.
We attended for my wife's birthday evening, and the manager of the restaurant made her feel very special, providing here with a birthday treat (Panna cotta) with a couple of candles, nice touch.
All in all a lovely experience, made to feel very welcome and special, food and wine were excellent, fantastic quality and pretty good value for money for all the experience.
Would definitely love to return and enjoy another experience.

Cannot tell you enough how good this little gem is. The staff were amazing and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
We had a 3 course meal and every course was 100% quality.
I had the green and white fettuccini which was outstanding.
The freshly made warm chocolate cake was sublime and the wine was tremendous. We like it so much we came back again 2 days later.

Amazing.

This place is a real gem. Found it through opentable and me and my partner thought it was tremendous.
We had three courses and every course was sublime. ‘Best lasagne’ my girlfriend has ever had.
So much so we returned two days later.
Can not recommend this enough.
Excellent food and excellent service.

Everything was wonderful! The food was delicious, the waiters were friendly, attentive, and fun. The restaurant’s atmosphere was everything I expected from Florence; full of old world charm and authenticity. I would highly recommend Lo Scudo to anyone who has time for a well-cooked meal with local ingredients. I would’ve said fresh, but the prosciutto was aged to perfection!).

Wonderful, restaurant with attentive staff and owner. We were there for a special birthday and they made sure that we enjoyed every moment; even bringing out a special desert with candles. Everything on menu was delicious! Will definitely go back next trip to Florence.

I enjoyed meeting the owner and his personal interest in my dinner. He explained that his approach to food is keep the ingredients fresh and simple. You can tast the difference. He also suggested several excellent wines. This dinner was one of my highlights in Florence.

The food is amazing as all their products are locally produced. The staff is always smiling and they are very attentive and fast. The environment is calm with ambience music, which makes it very romantic. The place is a family owned and they really know how to make you feel at home!

Wonderful food. Host’s behaviour was a little odd, acknowledging people and then leaving without a word for long stretches before coming back to show them a table. Also, it’s an enoteca but we were not offered a wine list? Odd. But the food was amazing and great atmosphere!
