Opened in December by Matteo Fantini and Nicolò Baretti, Io-Osteria Personale is one of the hottest new restaurants in town. Housed in a former butcher shop, it’s located in the heart of San Frediano, a neighborhood loved by Florentines but generally unknown to tourists.
“I have always felt intimidated by high-end restaurants, so we wanted to create a place where people could taste fine food in a comfortable setting,” said Fantini.
To that end, tables are made of raw wood while hanging on the white brickwork walls are blackboards explaining how the sophisticated dishes are made. Fantini personally chose the wines from all over Italy with the focus on Tuscan wineries, but shied away from expensive and famous labels, opting for smaller, unknown ones. Baretti created the menu based on local ingredients. A must-try is the chocolate soufflé served with tomato jam and basil sorbet.
