Used to be a really nice experience with nice, fun staff, genuine food and excellent wine, right from the start (1970s) through Fabio's legendary management and on into the 2000s. I hadn't been for about 10 years but was forced to the other night through...More

We know Florence well and came here unplanned this evening. We had excellent pasta & salad and the very best house red wine that we have encountered in Florence in many lengthy visits. Inexpensive with well organised, friendly, brisk service and we will definitely return....More

The menu is focused on traditional Tuscan recipes. Every day they have an menu insert of the daily specials. Everything we ordered from the specials list was delicious. We were all eating off each other's plates. We found this place by happenstance, and we came...More

Rude service. Food was edible, but nothing special. The table-bread was the best part of the entire 4-course meal.

Me and my boyfriend ate here on our second night in Florence, and it was by far my favourite meal on our trip! In the day time, you almost don't even notice the restaurant from the outside, as it's just a tiny door that blends...More

This place is so cute, an underground cellar with amazing well priced food. We had the lobster pasta which was by far the best pasta in Italy. Also had a truffle pasta which was very good. Their tiramisu was the best I've ever eaten. This...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
