Its a tiny restaurant quite famous though. We chose tasting menu and it was perfect with good wine selection remarkable evening. You need a reservation upfront, otherwise unless u are at opening (19.00) most likely they will be booked

So, we had high hopes... The place has great reviews, looks cool, and you need a rez... The food was good, fresh, and texture was on, but flavors were bland and unremarkable. The place was the most expensive of any of our meals in Florence...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
