Our best meal in Firenze (and the cheapest coincidentally). Lovely restaurant, simple but flavoursome and beautifully cooked dishes, such as pasta with duck breast, steak tartare and Tuscan specialities. House wine is really good.

I can't remember how we got her - perhaps one of our guides recommended the little streets in the area as having good restaurants. In any case, the bruschetta they served was the best I had in three weeks of Italy. Very 'saucy'. They must...More

The food is good, not all in same level, not excellent, but quite satisfactory. Was very disappointed by the deserts, the Tiramisu and the Creme Brule were simply not good

As you go down the stairs into the restaurant, you're really not sure what to expect. But when you get there it is the most charming setting all arches and brickwork. The waiters are quick to attend to you, albeit without a smile or a...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
