After a long day traveling, we were famished. The front desk of Hotel Spadai recommended this trattoria just a short walk away. Located right beside the imposing facade of the Basilica San Lorenzo, we were ushered into a second floor with a window overlooking the church. It was the start of a most memorable meal! Their Tuscan lasana was to... More

Tony was my waiter & he was excellent! Recommended me wine and a dish as this was my first time in Florence! The food was delicious and would recommend to anybody going to stop and eat. I had the cheese stuffed pasta with pear and my friend has the truffle ravioli. Both were amazing. We also ordered meat and melon!... More

We happened across this cafe on our first night in Florence. We were looking for something simple. The pasta was very good as was the risotto. They had a good selection of wine. Sitting outside was welcome. The staff was very attentive.

We stopped here after wandering around the sights of Florence, anxious to try the Florentine steak. We were not disappointed! The steak is intended to be shared with 3 or 4 people. We found it plenty for 4, combined with a cheese and salami starter, and a shared pasta. All was delicious. We had an attentive server, he even replaced... More

It's exactly what you expect from a trattoria in Florence, friendly staff and great down to earth food, they don't try over complicate things, its more of a do it simple but good, it's a variety of classic dishes with attention given to taste, and if you are around San Lorenzo area, its much better than most offerings in the...

The lasagna bolognese is sooo good! Went on the recommendation of a friend and it didn't disappoint. Also great that it's open continuously with a full menu which is not always easy to find in Florence.

We tried this place twice during our visit. The first time we had lunch. The Lasagna was very good. The cheese plate was a good portion size but disappointing since there was only two types of cheese that were just about the same. We went back a few days later for dinner and were seated right in the middle of... More

The location is excellent, the place itself is beautiful, the menu seems amazing but executed poorly and the service was really slow we were only 3 tables at 6pm when nobody really eats and the waiters didn't come to help. Terrible service!

Tried this Trattoria for the first time. We were seated upstairs at a window table so had a lovely view to the square outside. Service was very slow....but the food was well worth waiting for. We had a 'mixed grill' for two, the Italian sausage, steak, and pork were amazing with rosemary potatoes. Highly recommend, but not if you are... More
