Service is apathetic. My coffee was luke warm. I ordered French toast which was dry and unpleasant to eat. My partner ordered eggs Benedict and the eggs were well under, the bacon was good but the hash brown was stodgy and seemed like it had been reheated, because it certainly didn't taste fresh. There are so many fantastic restaurants in... More

We went for breakfast and they know how to do it American style. Although Italy does have great food, they typically don't do as much for a morning meal. The Diner is truly an American style diner.

The brunch is really good and the hamburgers too. For this type of food the prices are good (usually they are higher in other places). If you want to eat a good American burger or an American brunch you have to come to this place.

Ate here with friends when we were in town for a wedding. It was nice to have some food that reminded us of home. Prices were reasonable and the food was awesome.

As with others we were craving a basic North American style breakfast and made our way to The Diner. The good: Service was attentive, staff very friendly, great coffee. The bad: The hashbrowns were very greasy. 2 of my 3 "over easy" eggs were completely cooked with broken yolks. There was part of a food sticker in my salad. The... More

Dear Luke, I'm sorry that you were less than pleased with your experience. We are very proud of our food and know that it is of the highest quality. All the fruit and vegetables arrive every morning fresh from the market and are attentively washed, making it little credible that the lettuce could taste anything but fresh or that any... More

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.
