Good food, fast and good service. Good menu with plenty of variety. Pappardelle al cinghiale & vulcan pizza are great options. So good that I ate here twice in 24hours. Recommended at a good price

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
