Restaurant description

The traditional Florentine and Tuscan cuisine in a beautiful and typical restaurant in Florence
The Buca Mario Restaurant was founded 1886. This is when its first owner and founder Mario Corsini decided to house a place in the Palazzo Niccolini's cellars where soup and ribollita could be served, along with a wine cavern. Mario's formula was so successful that this place attracted many clients, even non-florentine clients, encouraged by a spreadword in favour of the Buca Mario (at that time the only way of advertising)..

Therefore, through the years Mario Corsini's restaurant became famous for its typical Florentine taste, for its characteristic cellar room, aswell as a tradition amongst the most respectable restaurants in town.
Still today, the Buca Mario is one of the most characteristic places to eat in Florence. Its ancient caracteristic evironment, according to Corsini's original idea, has stayed inaltered in time. Furthemore, it is protected by specific rules imposed by the Florentine Council: any structural change that can alter its peculiar style is not allowed.
