The first visit was so lovely that we went back again. The service was quick and friendly. The ravioli was tasty and the pesto gnocchi tasted very homemade. Sadly the second night we didn't get any bread. All round a great evening. Marg

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
