We didn't look these folks up before we walked in bc the place looked cute - no clue why this is 3*- best Seafood I've had after a... More

My wife, daughter and I had dinner in the Tre Merli, unfortunately! There was no atmosphere, the portions were tiny and my fish was tasteless and rubbery. When we complained to the Manager, Hojni, her first words were to ask us where we were from! As if that had anything to do with anything. She was defensive and made no... More

We went there as a bunch of girlfriends. We had some startes and main courses like pizza, pasta. The food was okay, but the service was terrible. Especially one waiter. He was doing is job like he just didn't wanted to be there. First there was just one pizza coming after 15 minutes the pasta came, than another 20 minutes... More

Pretty decent and reliable pizza and friendly staff who made a solo lady feel welcome! I went back after being disappointed with other nearby eateries.

During our stay in Santo Spirito, we decided to venture North of the river and try the first restaurant we came across. We ordered grilled vegetables with tomino melted cheese, Florentine trippa, and some of the house red. Unfortunately none of the above impressed whatsoever: the vegetables were grilled in such a way that they seemed to lose all flavour,... More

Just looking for a snack after touring Pisa. As there were no smokers there to start with we sat outside. It was a beautiful day for beer and pizza. Pizza crust was perfect. It would not matter the topping. We had prosciutto cotto. Very nice.

With no reservations tonight, we decided to walk around and look at hole-in-wall places that weren't full with lines out the door. We did this expecting not to have 5* food or 5* service. That being said, we were extremely surprised at what we good. The service was very good (except for the does not include service charge stamp), I... More

It started with the waiter who advised us on the wine. He wanted us to try "one of his best white wines". This white had cork. Clearly. Not his fault, but not admitting was... We chose a red instead. Food: tagliata looked like it was served before, cold too. Like the stone cold plates where it was served on, potatoes... More

Waiters are efficient, the place is buzzing. Their pizzas are quite good, but I would deginitely recommend one dish, the squid. A lot of garlic and a freshly prepared squid. Excellent.

With a group of 7 it is challenging to find a table without reservation - with this restaurant it was easy. Maybe should have taken this as the first warning sign... Service was slow and arrogant and menu didn't come to life at all on the plates... Had to wait for the dishes for hour after ordering, something seemed to... 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.
