In collaboration with local wine, olive oil and food producers, we are bringing our passion for Florence and Tuscany to the table. We are reviving Florentine culinary traditions and most importantly we are supporting our local producers whose ingredients become the real protagonists on the table.

Embracing the concept of farm to table and sourcing local products not only gives you an authentic experience and the opportunity to taste unique, non-commercial products, but it helps support our local economy, and reduces our impact on the environment. Tuscans produce food with passion, respect and gratitude for the land and what it provides.

Let Demetra introduce you to our wonderful wines, our local produce, our traditional Tuscan dishes together with a taste of true Florentine hospitality and culture.

    My second review - we were in Florence only 2 nights and had reservations for our wedding anniversary at a very popular roof top terrace restaurant but after dining at Demetra Hostaria with Monica the night before we knew we had to go back. Luckily we were able to get a table and had the most fabulous meal once again. Monica made us feel like family. Everything was superb. This night we had vegetable flan and the soup, followed by spinach ricotta gnudi and tagliatelle with duck ragu. Our mains were the chicken and pork loin. For dessert we had panacotta, and apple crumble. Each dish was delicious and perfectly prepared. Thank you so much for making our evening so special. We will definitely be back!! (I tried to post some photos but was unable)

    Quiet place off the main part of town. Wonderful meal, service was great - Monica was so sweet. Helped me choose my meal and it was one of the best dishes of the trip. Pepper stew is a must get!

    I booked this at the last minute due to a scheduling conflict with the restaurant at our hotel and it was nothing short of amazing! Everything was superb and perfectly prepared. We had the soup of the day, gnocchi, beef stew and apple crumble. My husband said it was the best meal he’s had out in years. I highly recommend.

    Demetra HostariaResponded 4 days agoThank you very much for your kind words! Monica:)

    The moment we entered from an almost empty side street, the experience was wonderful. The simplicity of the gnocchi with tomato and cheese was one of the best ever. The hearty meat stew was full of strong flavor and delicious. Our server, Monica I believe, was absolutely delightful. This restaurant is a hidden gem that I hesitate to write about for fear it will become “discovered by the masses!” But if you’re reading this, definitely go!

    We had just arrived at Firenze and couldn’t get into the handful of places reco’d by our airbnb hostess and came across Demetra, which could take our party of five on short notice. It also was only 2 blocks from our apartment. It is very old school and traditional in appearance, very fitting for the area. We could only see two employees, so a tight run operation. Nonetheless the service sped along and we never felt like we had to wait excessively for food or wine service. As we could only speak limited Italian we appreciated that the server and chef worked patiently with us to communicate the menu options. All in all a nice evening,

    Our 25th anniversary! What a beautiful authentic family restaurant in Florence. The woman, who we assume was the owner, was a sweet a honey and nice as can be. Loved everything from the bruschetta to dessert. We would go again!!

    There are not enough superlatives to describe this restaurant. It was an enchanting experience with our host and server orchestrating a memorable meal. There were four of us who each ordered different selections. Nothing was disappointing. The restaurant's ambience was low-key and lovely as well. In spite of the fact that we were visiting Florence in the midst of a terrible heatwave, the restaurant was adequately cooled and relaxing. I most definitely will keep track of this restaurant and look forward to my return visit.

    One of the best meals we’ve had in Italy. Everything had amazing flavor - a great showcase of antichi sapori. Monica was so warm and welcoming and made us feel like we were eating at our home. Great gem amongst an area filled with tourist traps

    Terrible experience, restaurant doesn’t really taste italian, there was a large group which took all the attention of the waitress and the maitre d’ Bread is flavorless, gnocchi undercooked, no beef on the menu Wine selection was good. We made it clear to the waitress that we did. It like the experience and they did nothing about it

    Demetra HostariaResponded on July 14, 2022We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your evening. In general our guests leave feeling like they are part of the family having had an experience that is rare to find in other restaurants. We would like to clarify that we do not serve Italian food but exclusively Florentine and Tuscan dishes. In fact the reason that the bread is 'flavorless' is because for centuries it has been made without salt. We take all feedback seriously as a way to constantly improve our service and experience.

    I had booked at a Michelin Star restaurant and at the last moment found this jewel of a trattoria while walking to the restaurant We cancelled the previous restaurant and we’re bewildered by the love and care owner Monica and her chef put into every last detail. Food is naturally and locally sourced you will not be disappointed

    Demetra HostariaResponded on July 14, 2022Hi David, thank you for your kind words. I have passed them onto to both Monica and Vik. Monica was thrilled that you enjoyed your time at Demetra Hostaria.

    You can’t go wrong eating here! The service we had here was our best we had our whole 12 day vacation in Italy. They are very attentive and make sure you have everything you need throughout the whole dinner. The place itself is adorable on a side street near the Duomo. Casual and date night too! 10/10
