We stopped in for a break from Italian food. This is definitely a good option. Relatively small plates of delicious Chinese food. We tried a number of dishes, Spring Rolls, Spare Ribs, Prawns on Hot Plate, Curry Fired Rice, Soft Fried Chicken and a Noodle Dish. Alll offerings were excellent. Dinner for four with wine was around 60 Euros. quite... More

We stopped for a meal here on our last night in Florence quite by chance as it was on the route back to our apartment. Very pleased that we did as it was one of the best Chinese meals I have had - authentic Chinese cuisine as opposed to the greasy, MSG and over-flavoured/over-coloured offerings that you find almost everywhere....

Quite adequate, but unmemorable Chinese food. Hardly gourmet, but does the job if you are in need of an Asian fix in this part of Florence. Pleasant staff, reasonable prices. Outside tables if the rather heavy decor inside doesn't appeal.

We were excited to see a Chinese restaurant with good reviews. So we give it a try: Wrong! Food portion was very small reflecting the prices. Woman owner and her husband started eating in the restaurant and did not provide much service and not friendly. Wow, I can't believe the 'cold' and no service restaurant.

The food in portion just good enough for me & hubby and we have pipping hot Chinese tea during the cool Spring nights. We came back 3 meals in a row, satisfied after every meal. 2 portion of fried rice/fried noodle, one soup... More

The service was also excellent! Immediately we our order was taken and served. Elegantly decorated, even the bathroom. Sweet and sour pork was excellent as was the shrimp fried rice. Very nice quiet and well appointed atmosphere. We will return for another delightful meal.

First and foremost, the atmosphere exceeded my expectations. Like others have said, the foods were cheap and are totally a bargain when they taste good. I would also like to add how the fried wonton is different from what I expected them to taste. The curry is also not the spicy red kind but it's the strong yellow kind. The... More

We "escaped" pizza when we found this restaurant. Not the greatest but still not too bad. We thought the food is adjusted to Italian style. The fried wonton looks different to a standard one, but the rest are pretty ok (tofu, chicken curry, fried rice). You can't complain as the price are pretty cheap. We will be there tomorrow for...

A pleasant restaurant, offering a change of Italian cuisine. Air conditioned, and good food. Not expensive.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
