We arrived late and without a reservation, so we had to wait for about 15minutes. And it was totally worth the time. The food is unbelievable, do not miss the opportunity to visit this place.

Terrific atmosphere and good service with friendly, entertaining staff. Authentic, Tuscan fare is quite good. Wonderful riboletta, pappardella with wild boar ragu, tripe, lasagne, cured meats and cheeses. On a terrific street filled with shops and restaurants, we return to Pensavo Peggio year after year.

The food is very good and price is decent. The staff and owner (I think) are very polite and friendly. At he end Limonchelo was served for free.

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
