Our Airbnb host recommended Osteria dei Benci because of its Florentine steak. We had a reservation for Friday at 8 pm and the restaurant was pretty quiet. We got a liter of the house red wine, which was probably too much for just two people,...More

We visisted this osteria twice during our stay in Florence, and we loved it both times. The food was excellent, the proposed wine fine and the atmossphere relaxing and casual. We did not take the enormous steaks that some other tables were getting but everything...More

This place was highly recommended so our expectations were high. The food was good, but too rich for my son and I. The service wasn't that friendly. Maybe they like locals better.

Delicious pasta and helpful staff. We went for lunch after walking up to piazzale Michelangelo, and none of us were disappointed. Great atmosphere with locals and tourists, and always seems to be quite busy. I would recommend it to anyone!

Recommended by our B & B host , and a good recommendation it was. This was our first meal in Florence and was the precursor to some great food. The meals arrived quickly and full of flavour. Yes very enjoyable

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
