In the late seventies, traditional Florentine cuisine was almost forgotten amidst the influx of standardized Italian cuisine. Loriano, a Florentine of many generations, with his wife Carla, gave birth to the idea of opening a restaurant in Florence in order to rediscover true Florentine culinary traditions. In remembrance of dining taverns from back in the day, they opened "Alla Vecchia Bettola" fusing together a decor typical of the ancient osterias and an exclusively Florentine cuisine.

So here we are, ready to taste a bit of this old Tuscan flavor, those flavors long gone but not forgotten, those aromas that will make any Florentine cry out: "Oh, that's good ol' lampredotto!" The ristorante "Alla Vecchia Bettola" emerged from years of combined culinary experience under their belt. June 23rd 1979, the restaurant opened its doors.

In the kitchen there's Carla, together with Carlo, a young student (another true Florentine) from the school of hospitality in Florence, and there is also Piera who acts as a sort of “sous chef.” During the lunch rush, you'll find Loriano juggling back and forth between the bar preparing charcuterie and also waiting tables. Most of the patrons become friends and are his inspiration to stay rejuvenized.

Slowly, people started to spread the word: "finally, good comfort food just like it used to be.” Here you can savor typical Florentine home-cooked dishes. The volume of customers are increasing every day, so much that the demand for hired help is growing. Year after year, patrons are consistently satisfied and well served. Even the owner's children, now grown-up, are committed to working in the restaurant. Time passes and new faces appear in the kitchen.

The brothers decided to continue their parent's tradition of “Bettola” with a new additional locale: "da Nerbone." Situated in the central market, you can enjoy sandwiches or stews for lunch as well as "lamperotto" and other typical Florentine fare. Behind the bar at “Bettola,” there is Loriano and Maximilian watching over the dining area being served plate after plate of typical peasant dishes such as the sbriciolona, "potato ravioli with wild hare sauce", ribollita, florentine tripe and many other simple and delicious Florentine delicacies.
