Was a little worried if this place would be a tourist trap as it's on a main square. In one way it may be.. slightly more expensive prices than the back streets, but boy.. was it worth it. The food was amazing, service was good...More

The wait staff was prompt, courteous, and solicitous. The manager helped us pick the perfect Montalcino brunello. The risotto and lasagna Florentine were outstanding. We even got sweet treats to take back to the hotel. Overall, a great place to dine on Piazza della República.

Great space very traditional and cozy in the square but the tiramisu in a bowl was a total joke, instead of coming to the table like a sliced cake, ridiculous service. Just Ridiculous, Bad experience. They need to learn how to please the clients. Because...More

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
