A wonderful restaurant. It was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. I ordered Spaghetti alla Carrettiera from the menu of the day and it was gorgeous! The house red is also good. Would recommend!

Food here was very good. Service was efficient and friendly. Bruschetta was first class, the tomatoes had so much flavour with good quality bread. Pizza was great as the restaurant has the pizza oven which generate that amazing crust. The chicken salad was fantastic.

Interesting restaurant - taking up the whole first floor of the building. Very nice interior - all rooms were a little bit different. Staff was very nice and welcoming. Food, lastly, was very good and Tuscan style. Recommend the tiramisu for dessert!

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
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
