After walking around we sat down here to watch the people go by and grab some lunch. Prices are average and the service here was really good. Pasta was very tasty and the soup was very good.

We stopped here for some lunch after a morning in Florence. The position in the square was ideal and the outdoor seating was very welcome in the beautiful sunshine. The actual restaurant inside is quite large so if you do not want to eat outside there is plenty of choice. Although very busy we were seated quickly and the waiter... More

On a recent visit to Firenze we had time for a quick lunch and decided on this place based on the shaded outside tables in Santa Croce Piazza. We were not disappointed! Service was fast and friendly, our food simply delicious - we shared a platter of meats which held plenty for two as well as two pieces of toasted... More

We stopped here for a lunchtime snack while waiting for the nearby Basilica Santa Croce to open its doors for visitors. The snacks and desserts there are truly delicious. We are determined to return!

We went there twice during a recent stay in Firenze, and was not disappointed on either occasion. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and the prices were reasonable. We dined there one evening, and had one of the best pizzas we have tasted. And waiting for the Santa Croce church to open on a Sunday, we had some delicious cakes... More

We had a great meal here while in Florence. It is right by Santa Croce. There is an outside area as well as inside and a garden area at the back. The food was good and the waiters were attentive. The prices were reasonable.

We stopped there because of the nice terrace in the sun, overlooking the Piazza Santa Croce. However, we were disappointed because of the poor quality of the coffee that we ordered, and that wasn't really cheap!

Stopped in at lunchtime for a couple of pizzas. Good food and service. We ate outside but there are plenty of tables inside. Inside looks nice. Nice atmosphere, well managed.

5 years ago my husband and I went on our honeymoon and were in Florence. We had the BEST Italian food of our lives there! We speak of it often saying how we would love to go back to eat that food again! Fast forward 5 years and here we are today. We were planning a day trip to Florence... More
