We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the most most amazing pasta dishes in Italy. The couple that owns the restaurant made us feel at home, helped us with our selection and made our visit even more memorable. I would highly recommend.

Il Profeta was nice Florence dinner and the food was good, the service was good and while the neighborhood could be better, everything went well. However, it was not good enough to earn a 5 star rating. Not bad, no complaints, just not great.

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
