After a remark we first got an explenation about how carpaccio is supposed to be eated and cooled down. . . After some words from here to there she also got the tagliatelli. Price... More

I couldn't find words at the time to describe the heavenly tastes we've had the pleasure to experience at this restaurant ! DO NOT MISS the T-Bone steak ! No matter what your budget is. This is one of the best culinary experiences I've ever had. What we had: The Eggplant Melanzane, The Charcuterie (meat cuts) platter, and some bruschettas... More

The famous Fiorentina steak was excellent as were the rest of the dishes we ordered. However, 250€ for a dinner of 7, with only 5 beers-no wine, is a bit steep.

We have been visiting Florence for many years and now have an apartment in the city. And each and every one of our stays starts, and ends, with a visit to Nico at Osteria dell Olio. The food is wonderful, but the experience created by Nico and Lediana is even better. Olio is located close to the Duomo (which is... More

We came across this little restaurant on our first evening in Florence and had a lovely meal there. Good traditional Italian cooking, fresh and delicious. A beautiful creme brûlée to finish with a nice twist. Would recommend.

After spending some time marvelling at Il Duomo, we decided we could do with a sit down and a spot of lunch. We didn't go very far before we happened upon this little place, tucked down a stone paved side street with a wooden platform for outdoor dining. We took a table in this structure and ordered. We each ordered... More

Was at lunch after a tour of the city and sat next to two local guys. They talked of many things we need to do but highly suggest this osteria. It was amazing. Great food, wine and ambience. We had a server named "Niko" and he was the best. He likes if you can guess where he is from. :-).

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.
