We chose the polenta with boar, which proved to be good but a bit plane with no vegetables. The parmigiana di melanzale is good, but not the very best we ever had. The torta di cioccolato is DELICIOUS. Red wine of the house can be skipped. You can also order pizza in the evening, which is not on the menu,... More

So, this was directly behind the venue I was working at, and instead of getting the "buy out" dinner at another restaurant, I opted for a Tuscany Florentine style steak here. Boy, was I happy I did. The meat was excellent - so much better than anything I've had in America - and the pricing wasn't that bad. They have... More

Learned my lesson quick: maybe best to not order a hamburger when in Italy. Been here for a week and have had amazing meals and today just wanted a change of pace. It was primarily just a really bad bun, as the patty was decent. Oh well - fail for me. My wife's pasta was tasty and the service was... More

We did not eat pizza here, thought it looked absolutely delicious! We ate here twice during our four days in Florence, it was wonderful. My husband had the sliced Chianina beef, and I had pasta with rage sauce both times. It was wonderful!

I did like a lot of others; researched restaurants in Florence before I came. Had them all in Google maps so I could pick depending on what location I found myself in. This restaurant got high praise. I found on my trip to Italy that in order to get clicks, sell guide books, get readers - sites pretty much have... More

This restaurant was formerly "hot" in terms of tourist spots. Now it is surviving in a very competitive market on the quality of its food. Located in a 18th century palazzo, ground floor it has a charming atmosphere. The Trip advisor bad reviews about service do not understand italian customs. You can walk into a vacant restaurant and be told... More

Wow what a great place for excellent service and quality Italian food. They do have a small cheap lunch menu but also the main lunch menu is worth the extra lovely Italian meats and mozzarella definite must !!! Lovely guys who run the bar.5 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio

Thank JasonLJ

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
