Bistecca alla Fiorentina, T-bone steak

The Chianina breed is the oldest in Italy; and it’s one of the oldest in the world. This breed of cow was used up until fifties, especially for framework. Nowadays the Chianina breed has become one of the best breed in the world. It’s famous for its features: lean meat, less subcutaneous fat, with a low cholesterol content. The Chianina is known all over the world as a high quality and genuine meat and overall famous because of its taste.

Interesting tip: The Florentine Steak (Bistecca alla Fiorentina) was born during the St. Lorenzo Night, when, in Florence, people used to roast calfs of Chianina breed. The name “Chianina” was due to a group of English travelers. They used to call this meat as “beef steak”. So we call the T-bone steak as “Bistecca”, or Bistecca alla Fiorentina.

Our Restaurant in Florence is specialized in cooking Bistecca alla Fiorentina (T-Bone steak), offering quality, experience and a quality service.
