Choosing a Florence Italy restaurant is a hard task for a traveler - there are so many of good restaurants in Florence and you can't visit them all during your stay.
Following the crowd in searching for the best Florence restaurant is risky. Many restaurants are just located on a busy street and that's why they are always full with customers, normally tourists. They eat there once and they never come back again.
You can very easily end up with a microwave cooked pasta from the restaurant's freezer. I've had this experience in the past...
The general rule is to give a preference to pizzerias and trattorias if you've got a tight budget. Another smart thing to do is to take advantage of "happy hours" in bars and enotecas where you can get many nice snacks next to your drink.
The Santa Croce area, Santo Spirito square and Santa Maria Novella area of Florence is where you can find good food at reasonable prices.
