We visited on a Friday, where they had a set 5 course experimental menu. We opted for the full menu at a cost of €25 euros, with wine for each course. Each course was cooked to perfection, delicately presented and very enjoyable. Customer service was...More

All the students work hard and are eager to learn! This place takes reservations (highly recommended). Gets very packed even on weekdays. Well worth it, though.

One of the worst places to eat in florence. It is sad that it is a culinary school restaurant and the food is such poor quality. The only positive note is that the servers are kind. But in terms of food, NEVER EAT HERE. I...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
