The steak was fantastic, as well as the wine. The service was perfect and they have good wine selection. The lemoncello recommended! The location is great and convenient. Highly recommended. 牛排超级好 红酒的类型很多 服务非常棒 如果想享受当地特色 来这里 地理位置也很好 离车站和景点都很近 非常推荐!

An average and mediocre restaurant. No correlation whatsoever between their high Tripadvisor rating and the quality of their food & service. Can find a similar quality restaurant around every street corner in Florence.....

Top notch service along w/ high quality food makes this one of the top spots to eat in Florence. We enjoyed the meat and cheese platter along w/ the large Florentine steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and presented extremely well. Mark was an excellent server.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
