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

When talking about Tuscan cooking we talk about tradition told in many dishes ranging from Commune to Commune, from season to season and from the many varieties of products that our territory offers. Our intent has always been to follow the season, giving you the chance to taste the most regional specialties, changing the menu several times a year. We are nevertheless proud to be able to do this without GLUTINE and use most vegetables and vegetables at KM Zero.
