We enjoyed a truly wonderful dinner here, on the night of the Festival of Lights. The attached piazza was alive with live music and dancing. My wife had a magnificent dish of Gnocchi in a Gorgonzola cream sauce topped with fresh truffles. I had the Ravioli in the Cinghale (Wild Boar) sauce which was delicious. A great local house wine...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, The Grand Minerva. It was well tucked away but easy to find on the map and only 5 minutes walk from our hotel. We struggled with the Italian menu until we realised they had separate menus written in English but we had to ask for them!! We both had the veal in a... More

My wife and I happened to walk past here and found it to be one of the most interesting and well run restaurants we have ever been to!! Very good warm lighting and atmosphere throughout.

Went here after a recommendation from a friend as they have a number of truffle dishes. I did get there about 8.30 on a Saturday and it was very busy but they got me a table on a lower floor. The first thing I noticed was all the tables are too close as they are trying to cram as many... More

We were staying just across the Piazza and it always seemed quite busy. We opted to sit outside and had a simple platter of local meats and cheese followed by past with a boar sauce - all very good and washed down with a chianti. Staff were attentive but unhurried and we had a pleasant relaxing meal.

Quaint, cozy, romantic and delicious. An entire page of TRUFFLE dishes. Attentive staff. Many private areas so you feel like you are there alone when the place is actually quite large. Hidden gem, will recommend this to everyone.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
