We went without a reservation (hence, not the better tables). Starter (crostini) was disappointing but main was excellent (fish/pasta). Serrvice was good. Plan for 50 Euro p.P. It's a good Italien but nothing outstanding.

This restaurant, whilst perfectly adequate in many ways, does nothing to justify its relatively high prices. The food is fairly standard Tuscan cuisine, well prepared and served, but doesn't rise to the heights of similarly priced restaurants elsewhere in the city. The place is something of a tourist trap (service charge automatically included, for example) and lacks authenticity as a... More

Took my girlfriend here for dinner for her birthday - the staff were perfect, friendly and welcoming. For once he indulged me in my less than perfect Italian rather than answering in English, but the waiter helped in English when my Italian let me down! I explained it was my girlfriend's birthday, and they brought out a complimentary dessert with... More

The place is modern and traditional as well as the food. We had two delucious starters: salmon and branzino they were both very tasty. After that onion soup and ortolana soup. Light and healthy. We saw fantastic fiorentina stakes and colorful pasta plates. We definitely recommend to go and try them when you are in Florence. Buon appetito

We got recommendations for this restaurant from our hotel and came back. Really tasty exquisite food. Will gladly come back next time. Price is reasonable. Good choice of vine. Locals come for family gatherings, which is a good sign. Almost every night full attendance.

this restaurant serves a good italian kitchen, and has a great wine list; the presentation of the dishes is very well done and the ingredients are fresh and high quality; the staff is friendly and efficient; one side note; the restaurant is large and might be a little noisy;

One of the best seafood restaurant in Florence. I would recommend to try Sea bass backed with rock salt. Ambient is quite with very good service.

We stumbled across this restaurant after experiencing some rudeness at another. It was busy and we had no reservation but the maitre d (Guiseppe) found us some space. We loved it so much that our family of 7 decided to eat there every night we were in Florence: Incredible service, beautiful food (value-for-money) and great wine. On our last night... More

The waiter Bebe and the waitress Lauren were so friendly and accommodating made us feel so comfortable and happy. We had the Seabass dinner and it truly was to die for it was just terrific. Will return tomorrow after our bus trip to Sienna. This was the best so far. Just to the left of the train and bus terminal... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
