Acqua Al 2 was recommended by a blogger I follow. It did not disappoint. I had the steak sampler. If the server tries to tell you one person can eat it, it's a lie. But I almost ate it all, and I don't regret it. It was one of the best things I've ever eaten. The wine was also lovely... More

Small Italian restaurant. We ordered the pasta sampler (5 different pastas of the day) and the steak sampler (3 kinds of steak - cooked in balsamic glazed, cooked with blueberries and grilled). It was fantastic! The menu is in Italian (which shows it's not a tourist trap.)

This restaurant made me completely furious and destroyed my night.I work in the section of tourism in Greece and I can understand much more things than an average person does. 1)THERE is no catalogue in English... (I guess you are no need of the tourists....) 2)The waitress needs to attend a fast learning programme in English language cause her English... More

Lovely restaurant. We ordered the steak sampler and the pasta sampler. It was just the right amount of food for two people, tapas style. Very good. The house Chianti was perfect. Tiramisu delicious. Lucia clearly cares about her customers and takes the extra steps to make sure your happy and comfortable. Great find. You won't be disappointed.

Every time we go to Italy we make sure to spend a few days in florence just to have dinner here. In my opinion the best food in Italy. If its just two of you I would recommend you get the pasta sampler and the blueberry filet.

This was our favorite place to eat in Italy. Highly recommended! They have sample menus that have a fair price and are absolutely amazing.

Always eat here when i am in Florence. I am a Canadian born in Naples. If you go here ask for Lucia (the owner), tell her "aldo da Napoli" sending you there..... see what happens.... the food is simple... the "asiago" or tasting is a good way to taste tapas style... But the blueberry filet is their signature dish... the... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
