Went here with some local friends and loved it. Started with the Zuppa de Verdure (veggie soup) which was thick and rich with veggies. Followed it with Tortellini, which was simply the best I have ever had. Big call, but absolutely loved it. Friendly, and helpful staff with good English skills if your Italian is like mine :) Must have... More

I love this restaurant. I happened on it four years ago and had dreamt about that pasta I had there and wondered if it would still be as delicious today. So I have now moved here and off I set to find out! First they brought out the bread... baked just for me, they teased! But guess what?! It was... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. It is now my first stop when I go to Florence! The staff are lovely and welcoming. The food is delicious and it's great value. Would recommend the pizza! Not too expensive considering it's location.

This restaurant is located in a nice and central area of Florence in the Piazza Mercato Centrale. It is not cheap, but this is normal, considering its location. The pizza was absolutely delicious (nothing like pizzas cooked in the traditional ovens!). Along with a cold beer, it was a lovely lunch in a busy and beautiful spot! A nice treat.

Cellini is an unassuming, but very nice restaurant next to the Central Market. We had a delightful lunch in the outside seating area. I had one of the better pizzas during my 2 week stay in Italy here and my wife had a delicious salad. The Moretti beer was ice cold and the pizza was burning hot- a perfect lunch... More

This restaurant is in a nice area of Florence in the Piazza Marcato Centrale. There are several restaurants in the Piazza, but we chose this one as it was fairly busy but not as packed as some of the others. It turned out to be a good choice. The service was excellent and my swordfish was great. Reasonably good value... More

I've eaten there three times this year on two different trips to Italy. On the second trip my wife and I ate there, she has an allergy to milk and the owner or manager Bella was very helpful. Their pizza never disappoints! On the second night Bella recognized us and gave us an additional 10% off!!

The pizza and tiramisu were absolutely fabulous. Went with a big group and the waiters were extremely pleasant and willing to accommodate. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for authentic, Italian cuisine.
