Alle Murate in Florence - worth it or no?

Thanks all. Having not received prompt acclimation, had already crossed Alle Murate off the list. Will follow Jen's and Erica's advice to "go local." Il Guscio does look nice. Will report back when we return.

Sorry to hear about Il Ritrovo. Marco was a true character and put out a very nice meal.

Venice - need 'best of' suggestions

We had an outstanding meal at Ristorante Riviera on the Zattere in 2004. Bogoli to sink your teeth into, and the fegato brought tears to my eyes. We ate outside along the Guidecca Canal. Magical.

Looking for Bistecca alla Florentina in Florence....

You might also consider all' Antico Ristoro di Cambi in San Frediano. Order it al sangue. Mostly locals when we went in 2004. www.anticoristorodicambi.it

Alle Murate in Florence - worth it or no?

Looking for a "blow out" dinner in Florence. Alle Murate looks interesting, but how is the food? I understand it is not inexpensive (200E for 2 (?)), which is fine if the food quality and dining experience warrant it. Can anyone who has been since they moved to via Proconsolo shed any light?

Also note that Il Ritrovo, which was once all the rave on this board, is no longer mentioned. What happened?
