I can't fault the food, it is excellent (!!), but I had eaten here over a decade ago and was excited to share a wonderful experience with my family. Sadly the staff were hard and almost rude. The ambiance is now almost boring. It has...More

It's a nice little restaurant with some decent food, but it's WAY too expensive for what you get. There are many better places in Florence if you're looking for value.

A very crowded and noicy restaurant, uninterested staff and uninteresting food. It might have been killed by guide-book recommendations.

Ignore the negative reviews I don't understand them? We were recommended this restaurant by our concierge as the best Steak in Florence and we were not disappointed! It is always busy and we were fortunate to get a table on a very busy Wednesday night....More

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

A reservation is always recommended, since the restaurant is normally full at lunch and dinner time. Still, the friendly staff also always try to accommodate one or two persons. In case you know your way in Florence, you can... More
