We ate at IO whilst visiting Florence over New Year 2017. We opted for the taster menu and the fact that you can choose each course is a fantastic idea that we hadn't seen elsewhere. Every course was amazing and the service matched the quality...More

My husband and I made a saw the reviews on trip advisor and walked in for dinner. It was fairly busy, so it would probably be wise to make a reservation. However, since we were going in the middle of the week, we were able...More

The food is superb; we had the four course tasting choice which was plenty for us. A local white wine recommended by the sommelier was a total success too. The creamed codfish was great, the chicken ravioli the best ever tasted and oh, that octopus...More

Lovely, tasty dishes with just the perfect wine served by a top notch staff. Easy to find and nice priced. One should pre-book to be sure to get a table.

Amazing food and service. They thought of everything. Textures, temperatures, flavour balances. Our waiter was so excited by the food he almost giggled every time he explained the dish.

It really deserves a Michelin star! They are able to balanced and complex flavours such as the smoked ones perfectly. My creamed codfish, smoked tomato, herring caviar and fried quinoa was very balanced and the colours in the plate wonderful. Food is well presented and...More

This may have been the best restaurant meal I have ever eaten. We had a four course menu, the tastes were exquisite, different than you would expect, but really great, just the right amount for dinner.

Short and sweet review: As starter, I had grilled calamari with potato & lemon cream. Calamari was tender and the mix of the condiments made it taste better. My boyfriend had grilled asparagus which was fresh & delicious. Then I had spaghetti with red prawns...More

This was our first dinner in Florence. It is a relatively small restaurant. The owner/manager is very friendly and involved with all the tables. He appears fluent in multiple languages including English and French. We ate early (7:30pm), but we saw locals arriving around 9:30pm/10:00pm;...More

Very very good. We opted for the six dish (any two starters, one first course, two mains and two desserts from the a la carte menu) taster menu at 55 euros/pp. My wife declared it to be one of the best meals she has ever...More

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
