After having 10 days of meats and cheeses in Italy we wanted to lighten it up and made a reservation at a vegetarian restaurant near our Airbnb. We arrived but it was so hot and humid inside we decided to look elsewhere. A few doors...More

This place was seriously amazing. The ambiance is adorable and the food was incredible. Started with the tomato soup for the table which is an absolute must! It's more like a bruschetta then a soup and had asking garlic and finely crumbled bread crumbs. I...More

Noon time in the middle of a very cold January on the " other side of the Arno" as the Italians say. The place is packed, always a good sign, and we manage to squeeze into a table at the back next to the kitchen....More

Oh boy...! There’s no need to spend many words: the food was simply exceptional, authentically Tuscan, (uniquely) rich in taste, the atmosphere extremely relaxing. The staff is most friendly, even open to chat between one service and the other. My girlfriend and I will definitely...More

Found this place by recommendation from a blog and was so happy I went with the advice. Down a quiet street it seemed just like a little hole in the wall (in a good way). My husband had the wild boar and I had the...More

My wife and I had a great evening meal at Trattoria Giovanni. Giovanni was very friendly and attentive. We were very impressed with the food, and the location , in a 13th century palazzo, was fabulous. Molto Gracie Giovanni!

We saw this little Trattoria while walking down the street after having a bad experience not far from there. We were welcomed by Giovanni (the owner) and his team in a warm and kind manner. We were given the menus and advised on what wine...More

Family feeling, great service and the food... Real Italian cooking, very good wines and on the top - no tourists! Mostly local or Italian guests add to the atmosphere this restaurant.

Our Airbnb host recommended this restaurant. It was very charming interior and good service. However, we were not overly impressed with our order. Perhaps if we had ordered something different, more tasty we would have given 5 stars instead of 4. Worth checking out.

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
