Meeting friends in Florence, first time for all of us, they found this place on their walk about. All four of us were delighted by the food and service. Great advice on wine as palates very different and they found us a great compromise. Went to a very highly recommended restaurant with 5 Tripadvisor Stars and it did not come... More

nestled in on this narrow street you find this gem! quaint neighborhood feel with fresh dishes to choose from. Just steps from Hotel Berchielli you can grab a bite without travelling far. 6 of us went and the staff was friendly and helpful. They also allowed us to split our bill between the 3 couples. Neat little wine cellar below... More

The food is outstanding, the people are warm and friendly, the wine selection is great and you don't have to wait until 7:00 to eat unlike many restaurants in Florence. We went often and never had a bad experience. One special was pasta with artichoke and lime which was heavenly. Highly recommended!

We stumbled on this place by accident and I'm glad we did!! They were very friendly and helpful while we were waiting to get into our rental. Both nights I tried the pasta special and it did not disappoint. Off a side street in a great location near the Ponte Vecchio.

Very expensive place and the food was nothing special. In a very quiet street with no view at all. Really a waste of money.

Our hotel concierge recommended this spot close to our hotel, and so glad he did! We had a delicious meal, reasonably priced, with excellent and friendly, welcoming service. Small space but no feeling of being crowded. We enjoyed it so much that we returned a couple of days later and had an equally good experience. Highly recommended.

I was alone so drinking wine by the glass so it was nice to have a choice of 6 or 7 reds and the same of whites including a range of styles and prices. I opted for a very nice Chianti Riserva. The service was friendly & welcoming and the owners clearly took personal pride in the place. I had... More

This was recommended by our Airbnb host, and not just because it was directly opposite our apartment entrance! We were greeted with Prosecco on the house, and studied the varied menu. Specialities include truffle and tartare meat and fish. We opted for slightly more usual food, with pasta and meats, all really well done and tasty, then shared an excellent... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
