Pitti Taste was the reason why I decided to make a trip to Florence (the photos of this trip are coming soon). The final tally was a group of 8 gourmet souls meeting for the delicious food of Florence. Some of them were also interested in the fair but primarily it was the "Fiorentina Steak" that brought us together. We had reservations at the Trattoria Gobbi 13. As soon as I entered the place, I thought it was the cutest trattoria that I had ever been to. The sharp decorations, the ceramic plates, and the gloomy atmosphere created with the candles formed my first impressions.
We started with the appetizers: buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, pecorino, and gorgonzola cheese were the ones I remember. Then arrived 'rigatoni', Gobbi's famous speciality, to pretty much every single table. I don't think I noticed a single neighboring table that did not have rigatonis on it.
Fiorentina Steak was the pinnacle of our dining experience which I can only describe as "phenomenal".
The next day we decided to go there for a second time and strengthen our memories of the scrumptious food. We started with buffalo mozzarellas again. Then I had myself some onion soup while one of my friends had the "Tortellini in Brodo".
I can say that Gobbi 13 was a cozy place not only because of the decoration and the near-magical atmosphere, but also because of the employees who were incredibly nice and warm.
