Yes, this place in nice and the service good, but the food is just okay. We ordered the fix menu with steak Florentine and my meal was raw, my wife was fine, as was my son. Overall I have to say disappointed...sorry La Spada.

Eat there twice. Lunch and dinner. The none grilled dishes are good. Ribolletta and lentil soup were good, not excellent, but a good sample of Tuscan farm fare. Eggplant parmigiana was excellent. Meat whether rabbit, chicken or beef were too dry. We are a party...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
