Great menu: You can either choose 'Costata', or a more simple 'Zuppa', in every case You'll taste real and good food; house wine will complete Your meal. Look for "esercizi storici fiorentini"-sign on the window and You'll find A place to stay.

Tuscany is know for its wine, soups, and meat and this place has it. Been advised that the best authentic Italian joints are off the beaten tourist paths, which is where place is located. Definitely go for the Tuscany veggie soup and steak with arugula & grana padano cheese.

We were heading to another restaurant and suddenly saw the Trip Advisor sign on the window. We took a peak inside and liked what we saw: a good balance between relaxed and formal; people of different ages (including many locals) happily eating meals that looked very attractive. It was perfect: the service (the owner provided advice without pushing), the food... More

We visited Santa Croce and discovered this Trattoria in the back streets nearby. Good selection of dishes and a nice 'local' atmosphere. We both had pasta, good portions and really tasty, and we had friendly and helpful service. Excellent value too.

This is one of the Trattoria nearby to NH Hotel next to the century old Gelato shop where our walking tour ends us... We thought just to get some food before our gelato feast. The menu is handwritten, that looks like also a century old practice and in Italian that we cannot really understand. So to play safe, we ordered... More

I've never had such poor service, our waiter hardly spoke to us and didn't want to give us the time of day. I hoped the food would at least make up for that, ordering the octopus/pasta dish which sounded delicious. The octopus was mostly minced with a sauce that made me want to be sick. My brother enjoyed the spaghetti... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Friday. I asked for a glass of Prosecco, and was told by our waiter that it was only available by the bottle. I knew I had a glass on the menu, so I showed it to him, and asked him, "what is this?" Apparently that started things off on the wrong foot. I... More

Dear customers, thank you for coming to us, we regret not being up and definitely got off on the wrong foot and I read that we continue with this step.

Typical Tuscan old trattoria born in 1911, just a few steps from Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza Signoria. Rustic, informal, with benches and wooden tables and an open kitchen. Sixty seats in the two internal rooms and the outdoor seating area in the pedestrian zone. Always make a home-style regional cuisine and economical and we specialize in Florentine steak cooked to coal.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
