This restaurant does not serve traditional Italian cuisine. Instead, the chef uses primarily local ingredients in a very innovative way. The dining area is relatively small and reservations are required. The night we were there they turned away a number of attempted walk in diners....More

Reminded me of the trendy Nordic fine dining approach to innovative simply with local ingredients. A perfect combination of tastes between different courses and the paired wines. We ordered 5 courses first, but had to make it 6 as we went on! Fantastic.

Let's begin with dessert: How innovative is wild fennel ice cream with licorice meringue and a cream sauce? It was Tuscan, but unlike any other food we had in Florence, and it tasted fantastic. This was the end of a spectacular meal at a place...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
