Traditional cuisine with a refined touch. Whatever came to the table was a delight. The 1,8kg Firoentina was a bit cold and we resent it back for re-heating.

Two points. First, I had dinner there on a weeknight in November (not exactly the peak of the tourist season in Florence). Still, it was a little odd that I was the only customer -- just me and the waiter. Second, the food is what...More

We selected the meal and opera package from Viator but were disappointed with the menu options as they gave us a limited menu and suggested that we don't order all the courses as they would be unable to turn them around fast enough for us...More

One of the best meals in Firenze, and I did my research. The food quality was absolutely superb; Michelin-quality, though I do not believe they are rated. Given the typical service levels in Italy, this was also some of the friendliest, most efficient service I...More

Fantastic restaurant in a unique, romantic and historic setting. Food and service was excellent. The language barrier did not matter. We recommend it for a great, adults only dining experience.

This is a great place to eat, wonderful food in this restaurant with deli. The food is not what you expect which makes it all the more interesting. The staff were generally very good and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to go back here.

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
