With themed menus, frescos in a former noble family palace, and a bar with an open-air vertical garden, Locale is one of the more fun fine dining spots in all of Italy, not just Florence. Start with the city’s most unique Negroni remixed with vermouth kombucha and floral bitters poured over hand-carved ice blocks. Be sure to get an order of grilled radicchio, chestnut honey, and giardiniera panini from their bar food menu before moving onto the mains. Everything coming out of the kitchen here is going to be excellent, but nothing feels overly serious. We’ve tried dishes like creamy squid ink risotto, wild mushroom tarts with juniper sorbet, and vegetarian porchetta with beets, rainbow chard, and green apple. You’ll definitely need a reservation, but for a fun experimental dinner, this one is worth the effort.
