Visited in September 2012. Definitely the highlight of the craft beer scene in Florence, although there really isn't much competition.
Pub has a cool atmosphere and the service was friendly. There were only 5 offerings on tap, which was a touch disappointing. The selection itself was ok, with an APA, AIPA, Blonde, a Belgian style beer and I forget the 4th one now. I had Morgana, the AIPA and it was quite good.
Didn't have food. I would return here if ever in Florence again, but that has more to do with the lack of options than anything else.

This place was the first microbrewery I visited in Italy. Technically this is just their brewpub—they brew elsewhere—but they feature their own beers. Friendly vibe, 4 brews on tap the day I visited, and it did not disappoint. Food—small bites and polenta fries—were on par with typical bar food, nothing worth going out of your way for, but you can’t beat their happy hour pricing. 3.5 euro for imperial pints. It might not be a “must see” destination stop while traveling through Italy but if you happen to pass by its definitely worth dropping in.

Mostodolce in Firenze is literally a stone's throw away from the train station near the piazza Santa Maria Novella, so if you are taking the train through Italy and are stopping in Firenze, try to check this place out as it's only a 10 minute walk from the station. I had the opportunity to visit this establishment twice while in Florence between 6/15 to 6/22. Just a note - those wishing to visit the brewpub should try to visit between 3:30pm and 7:30pm as imperial pints are 3.50 euro as opposed to 5.00 euro.
From the outside, Mostodolce closely resembles and American bar/brewpub. Interior is somewhat dank (I like the dank) and was a pleasant oasis form the heat of Florence. Upon entering, an L-shaped bar is located directly ahead. Immediately adjacent to the bar, as well as along the right wall are a number of 4-person tables and some booths. The bar itself can accommodate about 15 patrons. The atmosphere is very pub-like - lots of wood and some brass accents. Background music was fantastic - Elvis, Iggy Pop, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Metallica, Queen, etc.; better than most of the music I hear in the bars I frequent in the States. Service was decent, but a little slow and none of the staff spoke English; however, the menu is translated into English, so it didn't pose a major barrier. Food was really good in my opinion. I had the best Margherita pizza ever here and there is a full menu array that goes beyond the typical pub fare (which they also serve) - salads, antipasto, crostini, hearty pasta dishes and desserts to boot. Food prices were very reasonable as were beer prices during happy hour. Four beers were on-draft (Pepita - a pils; Volpe - described as a bock-style; Martellina - a Belgian Strong Pale Ale; Black Doll - an Irish Dry Stout; and Saison dell'Arco - a farmhouse); I tried three of the four (I just couldn't do a stout in 95 degree heat). I have to say that I enjoyed each one; however, Pepita was probably my favorite of the three. For non-beer drinkers, Mostodolce also stocks a full bar and wine offerings, as well as soft drinks, coffee, cappuccino, etc. Two things of note, cocktails are a bit pricey at 7.00 euro. Also, water is not complementary - this seems to be the case throughout Italy, so expect to pay for water if you wish to hydrate. I have to say that I really dug this place a lot and would have visited it a third time if I could have squeezed it in. If you are in Florence, this is the place to hit if you are looking to quell your craft beer addiction in a country renown for its wine. As a final note, 750ml corked and caged bottles are available for take-away if you wish to mule a few back to your point of origin.
