Toscana Firenze is an Italian restaurant situated on the edge of the city centre, near the Siegesdenkmal in Friedrichring. In former times the restaurant was two separated restaurants virtually side-by-side and they have simply knocked through the wall to create one giant restaurant.
There are 220 seats and the staff claim that they can cope with groups of up to 100 people at any one time, so ideal for bus and coach tours.
This restaurant was responsible for starting the so-called Freiburger Pizza War - which started when they simply offered anything from the menu at half price. Many other Italian restaurants in Freiburg were forced to lower their prices or join in with the half price offer in order to stay afloat. Since these times, many of the other Italian restaurants have dropped their half-price offer but Toscana-Frienze have done so too, but leaving their prices at half of the prices of other restaurants. For example, it is possible to order a large pizza with three toppings for 4 EURO, pasta dishes for roughly the same and side-order salads at equally tempting prices. A couple ordering two drinks, two starters and two main courses can expect to pay something in the range of 18 EURO for the complete order, un-heard of elsewhere in Freiburg.
As one can imagine, this restaurant can get very busy during weekend mealtimes so either book to get there early to ensure a table. Take-away is also available, either by telephoning the order 10 minutes bfore pickup or simply arriving at the restaurant. One can also choose between seasonal specialities like asparagus, wild pig in autumn, fresh mushrooms in summer and a large varity of delicious fish dishes throughout the year.
They also have a large selection of Italian wines and server the local Ganter beer to their guests.
Opening hours are 11:00 to 01:00 seven days a week without a break!
TIP: Take plenty of cash with you as they do not accept credit cards.
