This restaurant is located just around the corner from the lively Santo Spirito area in the heart of Oltrarno, the local side of the Arno. The food was very nice, I must admit. However, I was quite under-impressed by the service. Throughout the meal our...More

High quality food and wine - a wonderful ambience in a busy restaurant. Low prizing - we were surprised when we saw the bill. We have to visit that lovely restaurant once more during our stay in Firenze.

We visited there two times and had fabulous food both visits. We highly recommend to order some beef. Bistecca alla Fiorentina was amazing. Lot of locals, authentic food and very good service. A must go place and always full.

Very busy, best to book ahead. Simple but tasty dishes. Great atmosphere with good mix between locals and tourists. Unfortunately, some sand in the rucola of the otherwise nice carpaccio bresaola. Eine selection also basic, but ok.

Loved this very busy restaurant, read other reviews about poor service but I think its just because there are so many tables to look after that the waiters haven't time to linger and chitchat. The food was the closest we have had to authentic Italian...More

Easy to find, spacious trattoria. Food is very decent and prices are reasonable. Must try is the lemon sorbet. It comes in an actual frozen lemon, nice touch.

My second time in the Tratoria La Casalinga. Despite the fact of some tourists state that they have unfriendly staff, I must say that the staff per see is one of the high points of the restaurant. They are real Italians. And they deal with...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.
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
