A clean, well presented rustic restaurant. Friendly staff, well educated in many languages. We are English and our italian very basic, but they spoke to us in English. Helped us with the menu and provided us with choices. Excellent food.

Two of us had a huge steak, bottle of wine, spinach and grilled vegetables. All were well prepared and presented. Staff was wonderful and we shared a perfect tiramisu. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and drink.

As it happened, this restaurant was very close to our hotel, but we ate there because of what we read and saw in the windows, and because people we knew recommended it. They went at least twice, once to eat the giant Kobe steaks, and...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the

come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
