Nice, young and enthusiastic staff serving some really good food and wine at very reasonable prices. Quite a few choices for us vegetarians, huge portions and very flavoursome. Visited four evenings, we dined twice indoors and twice outside - but only because we had booked....More

My husband and I had OK meals here- nothing spectacular or amazing about anything we ordered. Was a bit of a let down after reading some of the glowing reviews!

We enjoyed our dinner here. I had an interesting plate of boar salami and cheese and my wife had the chicken liver that was a bit strong. She also had incredibly rich dish of gnocchi with truffles- thankfully she only ordered a half-portion. For my...More

Such a quaint restaurant in the square. Ate here two nights in a row! The gnocchi is incredible as well as the fresh spaghetti with tomato. Reservations are recommended. Inside and outside seating is available. A must eat in Florence!!

Amazing food in the quaintest of osterias. This was an absolute delight. Service was impeccable also. Can't recommend highly enough. Definitely go here! Loved the way smaller-plate versions of the food were available too. All very reasonably priced as well.

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
