Yes, your concierge probably recommended this place, but they also probably get a kick back for it as well. After sampling a ton of food in Tuscany, I an honestly say that this place is not worth your money are your time. The food is mediocre at best, the tables are cramped and the service is, well, less than stellar.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as one of the best Tuscan homemade food in Florence. We were not disappointed, from the knowledge of our waiter to the exquisite Gnocci and Raviola dishes we ate, washed down with local Classico Chianti. The food and service was so good, we are returning tomorrow night.

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place and she had done well by us at check-in so we took the reservation. The place was full, but we had that reservation. We were pleased to hear nothing but Italian. We started with an excellent single malt scotch neat and vodka on the rocks. A bottle of acqua frizzante joined the... More

I went there for a quick meal and despite being packed with tables of 4-8 they were able to seat me quickly at a two top. Had the caprese salad followed by the truffle tortellini, however, the table next to me had a meat platter that I was literally drooling over. Come to this place with friends and enjoy the... More

Arriving late into Florence, we were recommended this nearby place by the hotel concierge. We received a warm welcome into the restaurant seemingly populated entirely by locals, and were served a sublime meal that felt home cooked with pride and expertise. Wonderful experience of perfect carpaccio, al dente pasta and tasty Italian sausages across the courses. Warmly recommended.

I have been there with my students for 6 evenings just this month. It's one of the best restaurant for the welcoming, the food, the products I ever been in Italy. Everything was good and the portions perfect. Situated in the center and easy to find. I can only say that if you go to Florence you must go there!!!!!

Made a 7pm weekday reservation for two at this cosy restaurant just off Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. Restaurant was sparsely populated at 7, but packed to the gills by 8, so we were glad we made the reservation. Service was prompt and friendly, and my Cotolette di agnello alla griglia con patate was tasty and ample. Indeed, portions are... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
