This restaurant is a favorite with office workers and others who live or work on the north side of the Piazza Libertà. The menu changes seasonally. My favorite dish is an avocado and shrimp salad served only in the summer. The branzino is always good. Check the board for daily specials. Dessert is not to be missed.

Went for dinner to try local food and we were treated horrible there was only two other people and service was over an hour. The food was too salty and under cooked. Never ever recommending this place to anyone who speaks English.

The Alfredo happened to be round the corner from the hotel we were staying at and as such we decided to give it a try. What an absolute gem of a restaurant this is. I would class this as a classic local restaurant where you are getting the real deal. It is away from the tourist areas and as such... More

Food and service have been very good each time visited. Better make a reservation before hand if your going between 8-10 pm. The place is popular among the locals too.

We had just arrived to Firenze at night and we weren't sure how far it would be to get to city centre by foot at that time and find a table. We were happy to find this traditional italian restaurant around the corner and even more that it had a nice cosy table available without reservation. Pasta dishes were nice,... More

We went for lunch. Packed with locals but spoke English. Food I would say average. Prices a little high. Service was fast by Italian standards.

It's not expensive if we think about the menus prize in comparasing with other restaurants in firenze, but the food is not that great. Lasagna sucked to be honest, I can buy better on the supermarket and the meat was nothing special either

Good food, good wine, and great atmosphere! This place was packed with locals on a Saturday night and they just kept coming in. We had an entree of charcuterie, I followed with the pork and my husband with the raviolis. Both meals were good although a little bit on the blend side. Overall fabulous tough as the atmosphere was fantastic.

We were directed here by our hotel Bernini when we arrived a bit early. The manager said that was where he and his staff ate. We had just flown in to Pisa and so were grateful to go anywhere offering food. It was a great choice for lunch. We chose off the fixed price menu, the starters were as big... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
