It was recommended by our hotel, but the food presentation for the price was not even close to how it was described. While we did do the 5 course seafood selection, we would have been better off finding a real Italian pizzeria on our own....More

Friendly service is one very positive aspect of this quite popular restaurant with a strong appeal for Tourists. The food is average at best. Value for Money debatable.

At first you are welcoming with a nice prosecco. Chief Mattheo was so successful but I didn't enjoy the wine which offered by staff and choose it by myself.

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

Lungarno Bistrot overlooks the Lungarno Guicciardini. Its outdoor area opens onto a stunning backdrop of the Scarlatti square right in front of Palazzo Corsini. An excellent opportunity to enjoy this fascinating view for lunch or dinner. Inside, the atmosphere is modern and classic at the same time, cosy and warm. The large open kitchen allows you to see the chef at work. They prepare fresh pasta, different types of bread and desserts every day. Seasonal products are the base of our traditional Tuscan menu, as well as fresh fish. On request we can prepare vegetarians and gluten free dishes.
