From the delightful welcome from grandma to the tour of the fish market in English with the cute waiter, I was wowed with the atmosphere and service. Then came the food and the matched wine!! Amazing!!! Highly recommended for fine dining when visiting Florence.

Truly an amazing dining and drinking experience! The ambience is inviting along with the owner and her amazing crew of servers. Between the food and drinks not only were they delicious it was also a work of art. We will go back.

Recommended highly by concierge, nice place, extremely expensive with absolutely horrible service, food presentation good, but you'll wait forever, nobody refills your drink or water, gets you bread or butter, servings are microscopic , we expected better for the price we paid. overall SUCKS!

This restaurant is a total rip off. We paid 280 Euro for five-course menu and it was a disaster and the service was miserable. I don't recomand this to anyone.

We had the pleasure of eating here on Christmas Eve, surrounded by lots of Italians, wearing long flowing fur coats and bringing Christmas gifts in designer bags.... quite an experience in itself. This would seem to be a restaurant well-known to the locals, and was...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
