The best restaurant we found in this city. Florentine, salami, wine, bruscetta was everything amazing. Cheap and friendly service!

This trattoria was recommended to us by our hotel staff as an authentic Tuscan cuisine place. It's a small family run restaurant. The food was excellent. They serve pretty good bottled house wine. Good service and reasonable prices.

Very nice restaurant with very nice food and most friendly staff. If you don't want to go to one of the big and famous restaurants, go to this one. Same quality of food but much nicer

Extraordinary beef and tiramisu we had in this place, run by a wonderful couple and for a really good price! They were really friendly and invited us for two Grappas. We will come back for sure! Greetings from España e Lettonia! :D

It was raining and it was right next to our accom, so we decided to pop into this trattoria for dinner. We weren't disappointed. The steak was fresh, the pasta and risotto had plenty of flavour and the house wine was delicious. We'd been to...More

We were looking for a place to have dinner close to the hotel and all the "recommended places were too crowded or the wait too long. Our hotel (Adler Cavelieri) recommended this place across from the hotel. It was run by a very friendly couple...More

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
