We had a party of 7 for dinner. They have a really nice wine selection and lots of good pasta dishes to choose from. The home made tiramisu was so delicious! Definitely a good choice for family gatherings. Our server was very friendly as well.

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
