This place was wonderful. Great food. Great service. A little pricey but worth it for an upscale dinner. The presentation of food is amazing. I had the crab with a spicy red sauce. My husband had sea bass with olives and potatoes. We both loved...More

Been looking forward to writing this review. Worst evening out of my 2 weeks on this past trip. Been going to Tuscany for 20 years and this was by far the worst I have ever been taken advantage of, and with that said… In all...More

Loved this combination of fish market and upscale restaurant! We shared a lovely fish dish and their "refresh" on spaghetti. It was delicious! I would have given them a 5 star rating but the service grew a little ragged towards the end of our evening...More

An amazingly good meal. First, know that this is not a trattoria and you will be paying for the beautifully prepared and served food -- well worth the price. Probably the best, or close to it, fish we have had and we are from the...More

Where to begin? This restaurant is exorbitantly overpriced. Pasta and risotto dishes weigh in at €30 which roughly converts to £27 and a dish comprising two very small medallions of veal with two baby leeks, two baby sweet corn and a mere splash of very...More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and walked the 10 mins or so to Cestello. When we arrived we were the only guests but were welcomed and seated immediately. Our host described and recommended several cocktail options and almost immediately began bringing small...More

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.
