Le Carceri, restaurant Florence | BKWine Pick

Le Carceri actually means “the prison” and that is what this place used to be. Now it houses a nice restaurant and apartments (of the more voluntary kind). In a calm court yard hidden from traffic in the old penitentiary this restaurant has a very nice outside terrasse – calm since there are non cars and no scooters in sight. Le Carceri serves typical Italian bistro-tarattoria-pizzeria food: pasta, pizza, grilled meat or in stews, fresh or grilled vegetables etc. Not sophisticated but well prepared and good.

It is also interesting to take a look at the prison converted to housing.

The restaurant is often quite crowded either with local business people or just neighbours. The location is away from the city centre, a good 10 minutes walk, which you can think is good or bad, depending on your mood. (On the other hand, it is quite close to Hotel Privilege, where we often stay.) A good restaurant to go and relax with friends and have a straight forward Florentine meal.
