My daughter who has been studying abroad over here recommended this place. She was right on. On the recommendation of one of the owners who helped us with the menu, we had a small sampling of 5 pasta dishes and 3 meat dishes. All of these came random by the chef as we had no idea what was coming. The... More

Been here before and was keen to return - as before it didn't disappoint. House wine is good value and perfectly drinkable, and the food is spot on - mainly rustic in style but with some nice presentational touches here and there. But it's not about the presentation, it's the taste. A couple of plates of mixed cheese and salami... More

Nice atmosphere, good food and well priced. We had the tasting menu and shared between 2, included 5 small pasta dishes, 3 small steaks prepared in different styles (including the blueberry), and 3 salads. Reasonable wine list.

This was by far our favorite meal of our trip to Italy. Everything we ate was delicious. The blueberry steak and balsamic steak were both perfect. The pasta sampler and dessert sampler were great. I loved the tiramisu so much that I ordered another order and ate all of it myself! Also the house red and white were the best... More

We made a reservation here during a trip to Florence in place of our traditional thanksgiving dinner and it lived up to very high expectations. Steak sampler was a great way to try all of their signature steak dished in one night and the service was great. I'll definitely be coming here next time I am in Florence

I love going here and getting the sample plates. The menu is quite expensive so sometimes it's best to leave it up to the kitchen and the chef. The salad sample consist of three different salads that are always fresh and delicious. The pasta sample has six different pastas that you can try, each one unique. And the meat sample... More

My wife and I came here for dinner on a recommendation from some friends. Overall, the food was very good and the atmosphere was fun. We split the pasta sampler (which includes 5 different pastas) and the balsamic filet. If I had to do it over again, I would specify that we wanted to split the pasta, and then each... More

8 of us had dinner here. We choose the tasting menu and boy did we taste. I lost track of how many dishes they brought out for us. Might of had something to do with the number of bottle of wine they brought out! They are justly famous for their blueberry steak. It was wonderful. Maybe because we were a... More

Such a great meal we also went to dine in their Washington DC location. Chefs daily pasta sampler is worth the price. The balsamic and blueberry filet are to die for. Yes, a blueberry sauce, incredible. They have a plate that features all 3 fillets. A must visit in Florence.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
