Relaxed great Southern Italian food plus fabulous salads. Better if you speak Italian and come after 930 or lunch outside on a nice day. Wonderful Vitello Tonnata, melanzane parmigiana, vegetable soup, spaghetti vongole.

Want to drink something and have some antipasti, because it was “only” 19.15h but we were not welcome if we didn’t have the intention to order dinner.

I live in Sicily, and was excited to try some Tuscan food. I was NOT disappointed! Every dish, every, single, dish, was amazing!!! I highly recommend eating and enjoying, at Trattoria del Carmine!

Three of us dined here on a Saturday night when in Florence recently. We used our best Italian and tried to fit in rather than expect everything in English - after all, this is Italy! The waiter never cracked a smile or showed any indication...More

We went for dinner last night and had the worst service I have ever had at a restaurant in my life. Yes, the steak tasted ok. The waiter gave me anxiety about ordering as soon as we sat down. No smiles, he actually rolled his...More

This restaurant has been open for over 28 years and it never disappoints. Dinner was amazing in every sense of the word. The menu is only in Italian but the owners, who also serve you, will be happy to assist if you don’t understand it....More

We went for a late dinner at this restaurant and had a really great time. Good pasta, excellent service and a friendly Sicilian on the table next to us made this a special meal. Loved the ambiance and the more authentic vibe.

The food at this community restaurant was reasonable. However the service was very rushed and impatient. The waiter was not very helpful when we enquired more about the food. They even forgot the wine which we ordered. Eventhough there were many other families there, they...More

Funny because the three owners Franco, Valentino and Mario are from southern Italy but they seem to have learned the lesson well, much better that other so called "tuscan trattoria"

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
